I love paper company promo pieces. They are often spectacularly printed little gems and this one is no exception. And, I’m not just saying that because it highlights my photography. Recently I had the opportunity to collaborate with the incredibly talented designer/calligrapher Carol Fountain Nix to create this special promotional print piece for the French paper company Arjowiggins Creative Papers. Carol’s exquisite design and Arjowiggins ultra-chic papers, meld beautifully with my Music Makers photo series.
Arjowiggins Creative Papers
The photo selections by Carol deliberately demonstrate the wonderful versatility of the Arjowiggins line of papers. The 12×18″ size feels perfect and opens up to a giant 18×24″ spread. At the double spread size, the printed photos are just spectacular and retain all the nuances that I worked so hard to achieve in my original photographs. Arjowiggins printed the sample book on 3 different stocks – coated, silk and uncoated – to showcase the versatility of each. I’m amazed at how beautifully it prints on each stock. I love all 3 for different reasons.
Music Makers Relief Foundation
If you’re not familiar with the Music Maker Relief Foundation, please check them out. Their mission is “To preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it”. I discovered the organization because of my love for the blues. Eventually I chose to collaborate with them to create what I call my “Music Maker’s” series. The full photo series can be found on my studio website JimmyWilliamsPhotography.com and on my fine art website JimmyWilliamsFineArt.com.
