Print Isn’t Dead | Press Pass at Pureprint

Print Isn’t Dead | Press Pass at Pureprint

Last week we took a trip down to Pureprint in Uckfield to press pass our new magazine. As soon as we arrived and saw our cover in the light booth, we were blown away by the beautiful vibrancy of the Pantone 805c which is literally zinging of the gorgeous Fedrigoni Arcoprint paper. We immediately signed it off and the printers pressed on. We will be shipping all of our magazines out as soon as we get them at the end of this week. Be sure to get your hands on a copy from our Department Store, because they are limited in numbers and selling very quickly indeed. Feature


Print Isn’t Dead | Digital Proofs

Print Isn’t Dead | Digital Proofs

We are very excited about our very first magazine going into production. We thought we’d give you a little taste of what you might see in the magazine. We received our digital proofs from Pureprint so you can see some of the pages, however Pantone 805c is not visible with a digital print, so you’ll have to buy a copy to see the real deal. Feature

Analogue vs Digital Brief | Director’s Pick | Daniel Fletcher

Analogue vs Digital Brief | Director’s Pick | Daniel Fletcher

Last month we ran a two week brief with the Illustration students at LCC which had a resulting exhibition. The students had to take an image through various different mediums, making sure that they passed through both analogue and digital processes. The idea was to portray the famous Marshall McLuhan quote, “the medium is the message.” All of the students responded well, however the work of Daniel Fletcher really stood out amongst the crowd. He answered the brief concisely and enthusiastically with a project titled EUPHROSYNE. Feature

In celebration of Anthony Burrill’s new book, I Like It, What Is It?, we were asked to facilitate a two day live printing demo / workshop at KK Outlet, where the public could come along and have a go at screen printing their very own limited edition A.B print. We had many visitors from all stretches of the UK and the workshop went down a treat, lots of happy people walked away with a signed print and got to chat with Anthony Burrill during the evening. We love working with Burrill, and we have a new collaboration project in progress…so watch this space. Feature

People of Print :: Ministry of Sound #GetTrashed

On Sunday 24th November we ran a live screen printing workshop for vInspired at Ministry of Sound for their #GetTrashed campaign. The idea is to customise or exchange your clothing in order to save it going into a landfill. We created some super simple geometric graphics so that the customisers could experiment with printing layer upon layer onto their garments. The workshop went down a treat and many people were happy with their new hand printed clothes. Feature

This is another event that we were ecstatic to be part of was the opening of the Hollywood Costume Exhibition at the V&A Museum. The lucky winners of the MasterCard Priceless competition got to print over 150 t-shirts with us within a three hour time frame. It was a non-stop printing event for us but we thoroughly enjoyed it and everyone came away with a t-shirt and tote after experiencing the process of screen printing themselves. We commissioned the Hollywood themed artwork to artists we have featured on People of Print. Another example of a service we are happy to provide. Feature


Live Print Workshop :: Regent St. Levi’s

Live Print Workshop :: Regent St. Levi’s

Last year during the Olympics we were in the front of house section at the Levi’s flagship store on Regent Street for almost two months. We were working alongside Wicked Printing Stuff on a project whereby the public could come an print an iconic Anthony Burrill t-shirt or one of the wining submissions that were updated daily. The whole event was based around the idea of craft and hand made. Everybody loves to see the process of screen printing and to have a go themselves and has always been a successful activity during press and marketing events. Feature


Fedrigoni Imaginative Paper Open Studio Day

Fedrigoni got in touch with People of Print to ask help host an event celebrating the move into their impressive new show rooms at Clerkenwell house. Calling upon the incredible Anthony Burrill to create a strikingly bold poster the event celebrated the new Fedrigoni ‘Materica’ paper exploring how it can be used through the application of print. The exciting event saw a huge influx of different design, print and media professionals marvel over Burril’s fantastic artwork as they were given an opportunity to experience and interact with the process of screen printing hosted by Marcroy Smith & James O’Raw.

Kipepeo Cards Project :: Kibera Slum, Kenya

Kipepeo Cards Project :: Kibera Slum, Kenya

Earlier this year, we were given the task of setting up a functional screen print studio in the enormous Kibera Slum in scorching hot Kenya. The conditions were far from ideal, with dusty streets, lack of clean running water, small workspace and many other variables that would make it difficult to print. However, with the determination and support of Rachel Baughen from Kipepeo Cards we managed to bring this idea to reality earlier this month. Feature


Caught in the Crossfire Xmas Jam 2012

We were at this awesome event at Baysixty6 Skatepark printing the Crossfire Tees for all of these crazy skaters. The event was mental with lots of really impressive tricks. Definitely stick this in your diaries for next year.

POP :: Pick Me Up 2012

Well well well. It’s Easter Sunday and what better time than now to recap what we did at the incredible contemporary design fair that took place at Somerset House from 22nd March until 1st April. It was a blast and there was so much to see. If you managed to make it down you would probably agree with me when I say that it was a complete brain overload of top notch design, illustration, prints and workshops. Far too much to absorb in one day.
