Interior architect Lama Momtaz approached us through our Etsy shop. She choose Ivory Buckram and Alton Red for her A4 landscape presentation portfolio. These are two very popular colours but this is the first time we've used them together for a design portfolio (good choice).
While book cloth gives a nice tactile feel to the outer cover of a folder, buckram is just so much more practical. We believe Lama is in the early stages of her career, so her design portfolio is hopefully, going to see a lot of people. With that degree of handling buckram is going to be so much more forgiving and easy to keep clean.
That said, having gone with a nice contrasting colour in book cloth, she has the best of both worlds, and her portfolio now true personality as well as practicality. Lama also went with red foil embossing on the frount cover which matched the red spine and red inner cover of her folder.
