Everything Old is New. Again.

Daniel Dejan explains why print will always be his first love in an ever-increasing digital world

I should be clear that I believe in and strongly embrace technology (I’m a Google Glass Developer)! I think that the relationship between old and new—printed communication and digital outreach--will prove to be the most successful marriage for marketers in the future. Why? Because the permanence of print complements the instantaneous and constantly-updated nature of digital. Although each plays a role, I have to say that print is my first love. And, while I’ve always been clear about that, perhaps I’ve neglected to tell you why.

Let’s Get Real

Daniel Dejan discusses neurological research - and finds that paper and print could be the next big marketing push

Does touch stimulate memory? How do our brains process color and light to form images? What does a tactile experience deliver to the recipient? I’m fascinated by cognitive neuroscience and how humans—as biological organisms—comprehend the world around us. As a creative professional, I’m particularly interested in understanding how we interact with art as well as marketing materials.

Reading, Writing and the Multi-Sensory Experience


While it may seem obvious that we have different connections to printed and digital communication, there’s also quite a bit of scientific research that supports this perception and explains the actual difference between reading content printed on paper versus reading content on a monitor--a computer, tablet, phablet, or a smartphone. This research is providing new and unique observations that, I believe, reveal powerful insight about human beings and how we absorb knowledge.

I really like the marketing stake in the ground that drives the Sappi brand. We've positioned our paper mills in North America not only as leaders in paper manufacturing but as a company that provides essential resources—education, training and consulting—about paper, printing and graphic communication. Our marketing materials always have a double stance—we like to advise and motivate.
