Chancellor’s Installation Brochure

To mark the official installation of Dr. Fiona Hill as Durham University’s 13th Chancellor, Statex collaborated closely with the University and design partners to create a prestigious celebratory brochure.

The brochure provided a comprehensive itinerary for the event, including introductions and welcome notes from the Vice-Chancellor and Durham University Council.

Statex faced the challenge of producing a technically intricate brochure for the occasion. Specifically, the design required intricate foil blocking, incorporating both gold and white foil.

The foiled areas of the brochure were so fine and detailed, that specialist copper blocks had to be crafted to achieve the unique detail in the tapestry artwork.

As part of this project, we selected papers that were appropriate for the occasion and created hand-crafted mock-ups before proceeding with printing. The resulting brochure was very well received and “served as a fitting keepsake from our Chancellor’s Installation this year”.

Services used:

• Print Services (Litho)
• Perfect binding
• Bespoke cover paper
• Intricate foil blocking in gold, and white incorporating copper blocks

“Richard at Statex was extremely helpful in proactively managing a tight timeline and a challenging brief. We had requested a styling consistent with Durham’s brand identity and to mirror the special nature of the event. “
