Research at the CFPR

Research at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) is based on the production of the physical artefact, primarily predicated in print. All aspects of technology that relate to the core philosophy of making are central to this ethos.

This places the CFPR in an unusual position of understanding digital and new media technologies but always relating them to physical output and creativity. The CFPR has maintained and enhanced the quality of its work and built a world-wide reputation for research excellence. Our focus is on the close relationship that exists between technology, ideas and craft skills as understood in a visual environment. 

‘With over 60% of our research rated 'world-leading' and 'internationally excellent' in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, the Centre for Fine Print Research have a proven reputation in research excellence.’ (RAE 2008.pdf)
