On Top of Dundee at DC Thomson

On Wednesday afternoon some of the team from Blue2 and Avian were very lucky to receive a presentation and tour of the impressive DC Thomson Meadowside offices and the Kingsway Printing Press.

The afternoon started on the 10th-floor meeting room at their Meadowside headquarters. The room, appropriately named the Vista Room unveiled a breathtaking panoramic view of Dundee and the two bridges.

After the presentation, the team visited the Kingsway printing press which produces 15 million newspapers and publications a month. They were shown all the steps and processes undertaken to create the newspapers we see in shops all around the country. Some of the many innovations include translucent paper and scented inks. Yes, they even had bubblegum, coffee and a new car scented ink!

A massive thank you to Richie Wallace and Alison Reid for taking the time to show our team around.
