Lady Dior Campaign 2013
Lady Dior was born of a desire to create an instantly recognisable bag with a strong identity. Today personified by the beautiful and talented Marion Cotillard, the face of Lady Dior since 2008, the bag has never ceased to win over women since its creation. It truly has become Dior's bag of reference.

Bowes Museum - Barnard Castle, County Durham. Saturday 25th May 2013 - Sunday 1st September 2013
An innovative exhibition of photographs by Tim Walker, revealing how this leading fashion photographer is a significant artist with roots in traditions of English landscape painting.
Curated by Greville Worthington, this exhibition will explore Walker’s work beyond the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair, showing influences from British Surrealism, and a unique Neo-Romantic take on a particularly English aesthetic.
For the first time, Walker’s images will be displayed in light boxes, which give a new quality of drenched colour to the images.
Jack Wills - Summer 2013
Jack Wills was launched in 1999 in Salcombe, Devon, designing British heritage-inspired goods for the university crowd. We continue to be influenced by the best of British, from our history and culture to sporting and country pursuits. We take pride in using the finest quality materials, techniques and design to deliver our distinctive connection between the old and new, epitomising what it is to be young and Fabulously British.
Aritzia - TNA, Summer 2013
The motto this season? We play our way. Effortless and always authentic, this season is about a mashing of influences—from looks borrowed from ‘80s skate culture, to utilitarian workwear with military detailing, to sport-inspired pieces, it’s all about a borrowed-from-the-boys aesthetic with a distinctively feminine twist.
Touch Digital was set up in 1999 by Graeme Bulcraig to provide a digital alternative to conventional darkroom hand printing. Our initial client base shot fashion and advertising images on negative film and we were in demand to scan and retouch (or print) these images. The rapid progression of digital technologies into the industry has kept us evolving over the last 13 years. We still print and retouch for a wide variety of photographic clients, from digital hand printing of film (scanning, colour work in Photoshop, and cmyk approval proofing), through to complicated multi part composites and montages.
High Resolution film and print scanning | Retouching | Fine Art printing | Portfolio printing | GMG cmyk proofing | Video and animation post production | Website design and build by Potter & Web.
Our 2012/2013 price list is available here.
For detailed estimates or more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We have an experienced and friendly team of 7 full time staff that look after your digital photographic needs. Our new beautifully designed 2000sq ft premises in the heart of Shoreditch reflects our ambition to provide the very best environment for working on photographs digitally. Possibly a modern equivalent of the traditional darkroom.
Fine Art Printing
We have invested heavily in our fine art exhibition printing service to allow us to print large scale exhibitions on the very best inkjet printer and archival paper combinations available in London. Closely controlled custom made in-house profiles, large print viewing areas, digital pre-visualization of large print sizes using HD video projectors and a wide variety of media sets us apart from other diy inkjet printing services. All our exhibition printing is carried our by highly trained photoshop retouchers, who will access your needs and run tests strips on chosen media.
Exciting new services being offered at touch include colour grading of film using industry standard DaVinci Resolve alongside editing and post production in Adobe and Apple software.
Our abilities to translate a photographer's direction across multiple mediums and platforms sets touch apart from conventional post production companies.
Working on both the stills and video campaigns ensures consistency across iPad, online and print and enables cutting edge integration of high resolution elements into the post production process.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any upcoming projects. We offer pre-shoot advice, on set retouching and all the post production services you may require. Tel - +44 (0)20 7729 8586 email@example.com

A huge congratulations to Giles Price for coming in at an amazing second place in this prestigious photography award. The image was printed by us at Touch, so we feel very proud!
You can see more about the prize winners and the winning photographs here on the National Portrait Gallery website, and more about the talented photographer Giles Price on his website. He also has a Kickstarter page for a campaign to make a limited edition photography book of the series that inspired the picture. The project will focus on the massive Kumbh Mala festival that took place this year, and the hundreds of millions of pilgrims who made their way to Allahabad to take part in the traditional bathing rites. It's interesting stuff, find out more on his Kickstarter page.

Most of touch will be travelling 'up North' to the wilds of Northumberland for the opening of the new Tim Walker light box exhibition at The Bowes Museum. Please note we will only have skeleton staff here on afternoon of 24th May. More information about the show here.
NEW FTP File ServerApril 2013
Now that we finally have 50Mb un-contended fibre at touch, most files will be sent via link to the direct file on our own server. This massively speeds up the process of us sending clients any size image or video files. We have found in testing that our own in house server is even faster than you downloading a link from 'You send it' or 'WeTransfer' services. The benefit for you is that you can receive download links straight away, rather than having to wait for us to first upload the file to the third party service.
Also, clients are able to upload files directly to us much quicker and more reliably.
Please contact us for more information and/or a dedicated account on our FTP server.
CHRISTMAS OPENING TIMESDec 2012
We will be closed at end of day on Friday 21st December and will re-open for business on Wednesday 2nd January 2013.
From all at touch - thanks for a great exciting year and we look forward to seeing you again in 2013.

Touch Moves To Perseverance WorksMarch 2012
So, year 13 in the life of touch digital and we have now made the biggest expansion in our modest life. Philippe Malouin and the Post Office crew have transformed a beautiful, spacious but actually slightly impractical 1st floor open plan warehouse into a stunning, modern 2000sq ft retouching studio. We have only been here for a few weeks, and still settling into the space, but all staff and clients seems to be loving the new space. A few struggles with BT phones and a relatively lousy broadband are the only teething problems. We have been tinkering with the new gadgets and trying to keep up with Apple's attempts to keep us buying new gear every few weeks. We are still installing the last few bits of new gear including a whole new batch of Eizo CG245W monitors, an Epson 11880 64" printer and some totally souped up MacPros, whilst juggling a busy schedule of retouching, scanning and printing workflow. Thanks to everyone involved for the hard work, and to Perseverance Works for making us feel welcome. Handed in the keys to Rivington Street today with a slight sadness - will miss the Friday night early evening buzz from the Barley Mow and Bricklayers down below beckoning us down for a quick pint after work. Looking forward to the next 10 years of touch at Unit 18C.
New StaffMarch 2012
Touch welcomes our latest member of staff Kaoru Rose as Assistant Retoucher. Kaoru speaks fluent japanese and her favourite animal is a squirrel.
New Site Goes LiveMarch 2012
New website live. Thanks to David over at sister company Potter & Web for all the late nights to get our new site live. We have tried to create a new simple site that shows off the beauty of the photography that we work on. We will try to keep it up to date along with our blog and twitter account. We have also refined our branding to say "touch" - everyone knows we are digital. Hope it all makes sense and that we managed to get all credits correct in time. Over the past few years, touch was making websites for photographers and other creative businesses under the "touch me" brand. We decided late in 2011 to create a sister business focused solely on website design, creation and branding for creative industry. If you are a photographer, agent, brand or creative considering a new site, please give David or Graeme a call to discuss. www.potterandweb.com
