"Pica Publishing strives to help our clients get their message across as clearly, appealingly and cost-effectively as possible."
We understand the importance of clear, concise and easily comprehensible documents. We believe strongly that graphic design, typography and visual imagery – from the photographs selected and illustrations created to the presentation of tables, maps and figures – must first and foremost answer to this overarching objective.
Using the latest in desktop publishing and digital pre-media technology and keeping up with ever-changing trends and software developments is vital to maintaining our competitive edge, a policy the team at Pica Publishing adheres to strongly. This policy returns vital benefits to our clients in the form of increased efficiency, security, greater transparency, savings in time and, importantly, significant cost savings.
