Businesses across the globe use Blurb
Stephen Tierney, an internationally published designer and architect, wanted to create a book that was as elegant, clean and modern as his designs. So he chose Blurb and went with a simple layout to create a portfolio showcasing his handmade furniture.
Art Exhibit/Gallery: Catalog of Work
Gregory Peterson's fine art collection is world class, so naturally he wanted world-class quality when it came time to create a fine art photo book cataloguing his works. He chose Blurb, rather than a more expensive art book publisher, to create an exhibit catalogue when his collection was shown at the New York Academy of Art.
Business: Annual Report
American Apparel, a well-known trendsetter in the retail and advertising worlds, chose Blurb to create its annual report. Why? Blurb's print-on-demand technology allowed them to order as needed, saving the company money and time, as well as avoiding waste. What's more, our free tools allowed their graphic designer to easily design an annual report that's as modern and provocative as the brand itself.
Cream, an international marketing agency and events business, wanted a physical way to showcase its skills to the marketing and media professionals it serves. So it turned to Blurb. "No Apples" features Cream's top picks of the most innovative brands and creates a beautiful presentation piece they can send to potential and current clients.
Non-Profit: Fundraising Book
Many charities use Blurb to raise awareness and funds for their cause. In this case, the Global Partnership for Afghanistan, a non-profit aimed at helping rural farmers, created an ebook that could be sent and shared easily with potential donors globally without the hassle or expense of shipping and postage.
