Ryerson GCM students have won the Grand Prize Helmut Kipphan Cup for top overall student research publication at the Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) Conference. Ryerson has won the Cup for the second time in three years.
The submitted publication consists of 160 pages of student-researched papers covering a range of graphic arts-related topics such as security printing, halftone dots, and ink tack on process colour printing. The document was judged for student research, writing, and graphic arts production.
Twelve students from the Ryerson TAGA Student Chapter went down to San Diego for the 62nd Annual Technical Conference to present the project along with faculty members Martin Habekost and Jason Lisi. Habekost and Lisi also made presentations at the conference.
The Kipphan Cup is named after Professor Helmut Kipphan, Head of Advanced and Future Technologies at Heidelberg.
The team had industry support from Lowe-Martin, the International Association of Printing House Craftsmen, Webcom, Fujifilm, York Bindery and Imation. To view the ryeTAGA submission, it is available online at www.ryetaga.com.
