Overview

With the availability of new technologies, counterfeiting is on the rise, posing serious risks to businesses, governments and individuals worldwide. As a powerful security design tool that generates personalized, copy-proof elements, Arziro Design 3.0 helps protect counterfeit-sensitive documents or brands from forgery, and lets tenders of high-security documents create mock-ups.

Pushing the boundaries of security design, complexity and discretion, Arziro Design is parameterizable – users can choose from pre-defined parameters or create customized ones.

The newest upgrade of Arziro Design offers full integration with Arziro Authenticate 2.0 – the latest version of Agfa’s ultra-safe, encrypted distribution platform. Also, the Arziro Design Plus version for government entities, institutions, security printers, and security designers offers enhanced compatibility and functionality, such as new security design possibilities and precise control of print output.

Features

Unique anti-forgery software

While many anti-counterfeiting efforts tend to overlook graphic design, Arziro Design acknowledges it as one of the most basic and important elements of document and brand protection. Inspired by high-end security software, it incorporates the aspect of security into the initial step of document or product creation. 

A multitude of design tools

Rather than using the standard version of Adobe Illustrator to create security elements – often time-consuming and not 100% copy-proof – opt for Arziro Design. It’s your best ally in battling forgery, enabling you to create preliminary designs of security documents and mock-ups of high-security documents.

Only with the inventive combination of many techniques can you create a total, multi-layered anti-forgery solution. Arziro Design is your ultimate assistant in this layering process as it combines existing designs with copy-proof security elements:

  • Special Rasters, including the Line Raster, Select Raster, Trafo Raster, and Dither Raster
  • Special Reliefs, including the tools Quick Background and NumismaticsThe Crystal Patterns tool
  • The Path Definition module
  • The Line/Object Generator
  • The Guilloche Library
  • The utilities Multiply and Opposite Ink Selector
  • The Smart Selection tool (Plus version only)
  • Arziro Blend (Plus version only)

Plug-in for Adobe Illustrator Mac and PC

Running as a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator on Mac and PC, Arziro Design offers a straightforward and easy-to-use anti-counterfeiting solution. Settings are applied to the design in real time and creations can be easily adapted, as they are regular Illustrator elements.

Arziro Design 3.0 improvements

The new Arziro Design builds on the strengths of its previous release and adds improved functionality (e.g. new design possibilities), integration with Arziro Authenticate 2.0 and a new module in Arziro Plus – the premium version of Arziro available to certified security printers, institutions and governmental departments. It generates general security documents and dramatically reduces the time to create professional mock-ups for tenders.

The new module in Arziro Plus, Arziro Blend, generates new designs based on one or more selected elements with specific line distances and line weights, for even more creative possibilities. In addition, Arziro Plus enables greater control of the output and printability of the designs, as well as advanced efficiency-enhancing functionalities.

Arziro Authenticate integration

A new module in Arziro Design adds additional protection to your documents and brand by using an encrypted version of an Arziro Authenticate QR+ code. Documents using these encrypted codes can be safely distributed, as they are unusable for illicit purposes. Only the security designer or printer can create the final codes offline using the right decryption keys just before the printing process.

Add additional protection to your documents or brand through Arziro Authenticate, a new module for Arziro Design that generates encrypted versions of QR+ codes. Documents carrying these encrypted codes can be safely distributed and are unusable for illicit purposes. Only the security designer or printer can create the final codes offline using the right decryption keys just before the printing process.
