Book: "The Art of James Marshall"
A group of volunteers decided to produce a book to celebrate the amazing work and career of a local artist, James Marshall.
In this book James Marshall tells the story of his art in his own words, with illustrations in pen and ink, watercolours and photographs of his carved brick murals, along with a description of the work involved in producing them.
For this project HSI volunteered the production of the book, which included the design, layout and photo-editing. We enjoying every aspect of working with Jim as well as the team of volunteers who made this project happen. Their passion and deep appreciation for the cultural and artistic influences that Jim's work continues to have, was inspiring—to say the least.
- Technical Document Publications
- With well over a decade of experience in managing technical document publications, we employ the most advanced publishing and information management software available today. Our workflow allows for easy updating of the most technical document structures and allows for easy cross-platform publishing. We continue to publish a vast number of large technical manuals, hard and soft cover books (some of which have won international awards) and many magazines and periodicals. In addition to expertise in the organization of complex material, our team also provides supplemental and supportive services that augment the publications we work on. From 3D and 2D animation, to developing strategic information architecture, to photography, and copy writing – our team is adept at producing first-rate publications.
- Print Production
- When it comes to document publishing many of our clients manage print production on their own. For the majority however, the technicalities in ensuring colour accuracy, media selection and proofing are all areas that they would rather leave to us. Tables of contents, glossaries, indexes, cross references and design are just where things begin for us. We also offer a single-source solution for all of your print collateral and distribution needs. We have multiple sources available for any print production requirements and fantastic relationships with some of the largest printers and binderies in Canada. From offset and web presswork to vinyl signage or dry mount plaques for your next sales campaign—we've done it all—and often for prices that are lower than those available directly to our clients.
