Timage is an Essex-based importer and retailer of high grade marine fixtures and fittings. It’s a family owned business with a strong Italian heritage and they source much of their product line from areas close to where their family originate.
Our Task Was
After our successful work on an earlier product catalogue for Timage, they came back for a new brochure design this time focussing on lighting and furniture. We needed to spec up and design a 72 page brochure and suggest and source a variety of paper samples that would match the high quality of the products contained in the brochure.
What We’ve Done
The initial stages involved sorting through the asset list and working on an estimated pagination based on the information profiles that would be needed with each product specification. Once this new brochure design had been flat planned we obtained a selection of paper samples and print quotes based on the sample selection and pagination. Then it was just the matter of proceeding with the new brochure design.

Having already supplied a great brochure for Timage last year it the initial stages of this project were simple to execute at speed. We already knew what different paper types would suit the client and the products they sell and we knew that the most likely print supplier would be Park Lane Press who’d printed the earlier job too. Plus, the brief from the client was straightforward and they knew what we could deliver.
The greatest difficulty was ensuring we had all the requisite photography assets from the various manufacturers that Timage source from. Not only that but making sure that they were all in technical formats that could be used in this new brochure design and would appear to be all shot by the same photographer. We hope you’ll agree that the end result has achieved this goal.
We were able to supply a short run of print in time for a crucial trade show with a longer print run following on thereafter.
