"Driven by Design," the Trump Intl. Hotel & Tower Dubai proposal book designed by Seventh Art Inc., was named the grand prize winner of the second annual Mohawk i-Tonies digital print competition.

The book was produced in true luxurious Trump fashion. In the space of a week, Texas Graphic Resources was able to produce and deliver the books to Dubai for an exclusive launch party given by Donald Trump, Nakheel and Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The architectural images in the oversized photo book were printed on Mohawk Kromekote IN-fusion C2S 12pt on an HP Indigo 5000. All sheets were then silkscreen UV coated.  The custom hand bindery was designed in-house as a way to maximize the usage of a single sheet.

The Mohawk i-Tonie awards celebrate the art of digital print production. Eligible entries are those that are produced with an HP Indigo press on Mohawk papers for HP Indigo. The jury for this year’s competition was Frank Romano, Professor Emeritus from RIT; Todd Kalagher, President of Finlay Printing; Bill Garno, Director of RIT’s Printing Applications Laboratory; and Brett Traylor, Partner of Thinkso Creative in New York City.

Honorable Mentions include the Rochester Institute of Technology Cary Graphic Arts Press, Finlay Printing and Bennett Graphics.
