Appleton Coated: One Mill Strong

Appleton Coated has updated its logo and branding, and Rule29 is proud to come on board as the mill’s strategic design partner, implementing the new brand and positioning across all platforms and projects in 2015. The new Appleton Coated proudly establishes the mill’s capabilities and expertise across a range of paper types. Marketing Manager Ferko Goldinger mentions, At Appleton Coated, we push paper to become far more than the sum of water and fiber… Working tenaciously as one, we transform pulp and passion into potential.” We’re excited to work with Appleton Coated in the months to come.
