GWG chairman David Zwang is excited about working with LCC [Ghent Workshop]

Students can now get the latest training in commercial printing and packaging for free at London College of Communication.

The seminars in PDF production are organised by The Ghent PDF Workgroup (GWG) and will be held on January 23 in the Podium Lecture Theatre.

The GWG is an international think-tank that seeks to establish and distribute process guidelines for the best practices in graphic arts workflows.

David Zwang, chairman at the GWG said: “Since the GWG is all about developing best practices for publishing, print, and packaging workflows, what better place to educate the existing practitioners – as well as those up and coming – than at an educational institution like LCC?

“The seminars will focus on the needs of PDF design and production, as well as the packing design and production market,” he said.

Optimising packaging design

The first seminar will focus on optimising packaging design with guest speakers from leading industry packaging companies including Phototype and Bleuprocess.

Zwang will speak at the second lecture with experts from leading software company Enfocus and Swiss graphic arts association PDF/X Ready about the GWG2012 guidelines for creation and preflight of ‘PDF/X-4 files’.

He said: “All of these companies are members of the GWG and have participated in the development of the specifications and best practices in specific areas of focus. The people presenting the seminars are experts in their individual areas of focus.
