Danish artist Sofie Børsting creates an illustrated line of products that sells in some of the finest design shops in Scandinavia and around the world. The artwork is made from a combination of carefully hand drawn botanical elements, collage and gouache with details that needs to be preserved – also when digitized for further production.
If you ask Sofie Børsting, it is crucial to any artist that digitized versions of their originals do the artwork justice. Therefore, quality is the focal point of any investment.
We invited Sofie to visit the Contex demo room in Denmark, where she quickly realized that even the entry-level scanners fulfill her quality demands. It was surprising to her that all Contex scanners deliver up to 1200 dpi, even the flatbed. Most of the time a 1:1 scan of her originals is enough. However, when originals are digitized with the aim of printing on, for example, wallpaper and pillow cases, 1200 dpi really widens your options.
