Roland DGA Corp., Irvine, CA, recently debuted the Roland Masters Gallery, a Web-based art gallery that formally recognizes the achievements of top Roland inkjet users. Honorees include screen printers, sign makers, apparel decorators, graphics professionals, and artists from across the globe. Roland says the masters were chosen based on a portfolio of work that reflects exceptional creativity and execution and demonstrate a high level of technical expertise.
“Roland printers and integrated printers/cutters have been chosen by many of the industry’s most creative professionals, and we are enthusiastic about this opportunity to showcase their work and demonstrate the true potential of Roland inkjet technology,” says Patrick Kersey, creative director for Roland. “We are inspired by the design and production skills of these industry leaders, and we remain committed to providing digital printing solutions that meet their high standards for quality, precision, performance, and reliability.”
Professionals recognized in the Roland Masters Collection include Martin Charles, Hollywood Film Graphic Designer (Los Angeles, CA); Jim Conquest, Imagine-It Graphics (Murrieta, CA); Enrico Del Mar, Modern Image Signworks (San Diego, CA); Matt Richart and Dallas Fowler, Digital EFX Wraps (Louisville, KY); Eric Goodwin, Garage Graphics (Orange County, CA); Jay Lansburg, Automic Designs (Buena Park, CA); TJ Rose, TJ Rose Fine Art & Artistic Giclée Services (Henderson, NV); and Mike and Paul Chaklos, Above and Beyond (Irvine, CA).
“The challenges of replicating today’s visual communications is greater than ever before because of the high standards that are expected,” says Martin Charles of SagaBoy Productions, Roland Master and Hollywood film graphic designer for feature films, including Charlie Wilson’s War and Miami Vice. “If there is a one-and-only, must-have printer for a designer, the Roland SOLJET printer/cutter is that printer. It is far superior in its ability to print beautiful images on almost any material quickly, and the cutting technology is unmatched.”
