By definition, a caricature is an “exaggerated likeness”, typically of a person. These dynamic drawings are vibrant, fun, memorable, and often the perfect marketing tool to help you stand out in today’s digital environment.
We are an innovative hybrid publisher with over 20 years of professional service in book and magazine publishing, e-publishing, technical and association publishing, and graphic book publishing.
More than an act
Part of Act 3’s tradition of exploration and outreach takes us on “Road Trips.” We visit to learn in person more about clients, partners, communications tech and that’s interesting and fun for the creative spirit in all of us.
As the Delta variant reminded us who’s in charge (hint: it’s not us), we donned our masks in order to meet a remarkable man with an infectious spirit – and an incredible machine. In late August, Act 3 saddled up and rode to The 961 Collective. In a repurposed 100 year old industrial building, there it was: a vintage Letterpress machine that was lovingly brought back to life by the Collective’s founder, Shadi Ayoub. Today, Shadi doesn’t operate his two restored Heidelberg Letterpress machines as much as he plays with them like a child plays with a train set – or a virtuoso violinist plays a Stradivarius.
