CHILI publisher, the Universal Graphics Engine, scoops EDP Award 2018 at FESPA 2018

The EDP Award 2018 in the category Layout, design and editing software illustrates benefits of CHILI publisher in the large format market

Erembodegem, Belgium, May 16th, 2018 – CHILI publish ( is proud to announce it has won an EDP award 2018 in the category Layout, design and editing software during FESPA Global Print Expo 2018. The technical committee commented on CHILI publisher, the Universal Graphics Engine, as the category’s winner: “As a layout, design and editing software CHILI publisher is the most complete tool in this category. It has been a leading product for years – as the rebranded engine it takes its existing functionalities to a higher level even.”

Proven track record in Large Format
In a creative sector as Large Format, technology automation is the way forward to optimize processes and free up time for design teams for more commercial and profitable projects. Belgian CHILI publish customer, 3Motion, renowned for its highly creative and innovative solutions, originally purchased CHILI publisher for a packaging solution because of the 3D visualization feature. But trial and error revealed a more profitable way for 3Motion to exponentially generate return on its investment: a smooth and flawless stand creation process for show organizers.

Wouter Mouton, co-founder of 3Motion, explains: “Template creation facilitates the way recurring jobs can be adjusted and approved, online and easily. We extrapolated that to one of our customers, a show organizer. We got different files from different vendors, seldom good-for-print and most often way past the deadline. A major strain on our resources, let alone nerves. It just wasn’t commercially or professionally viable anymore.” But by templatizing the fixed booth design and integrating this in a software process of their own design, 3Motion enabled attendees to the show to upload, edit and approve their stand designs online. No way to mess about, the template allowed for no aberrations. It proved a timely, easy and cost-efficient solution to alleviate prepress stress levels before any show.

Wouter concludes: “It was a game changer. We automated the design creation process, which resulted in a flawless print-ready file to go into production. We created the template, the organizer shared the upload link and the CHILI publisher integration handled the rest. We printed the stand, and shipped it. Easy enough. And yet this saved us so much time, resources and quite some stress.”

The workflow has been such a success that 3Motion is currently considering franchise implementation requests from The Netherlands and France.
