The World’s First Instant Newspaper Recycler | Saatchi & Saatchi Hong Kong

Saatchi & Saatchi Hong Kong created World’s first Instant Newspaper Recycler for Sun Hung Kai. It’s said that the amount of wrapping paper used in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year results in as many as 1,600 trees being cut down, and 170,000 litres of petrol burned.

This festive season Print Club London are pleased to present their new exhibition “12 Prints”. As always it was an open submission to allow the artists to showcase their own personal style and point of view. The response was amazing. The key to the show they believe, is aligning some really established illustrators, street artists and designers alongside those fresh out of art school creating an equal platform. Their aim is to bring affordable art prints to a wider demographic and encouraging buyers to invest in original artwork.
