The Private Press at Brand Union

A couple of weeks ago, the team at Brand Union, London got their hands dirty in the all-agency meeting to learn about and experience hand silk screen-printing.

...but first of all they had to climb into boiler suits and make an origami printer's hat!
Gary Parselle from The Private Press set up a temporary silkscreen print workshop in the Brand Union Studio.
He provided absolutely everything to ensure this was a truly fulfilling, creative process which involved absolutely everyone.
...and of course he also needed some paper! -so we were asked to supply a selection of different colours from our Colorset range in 270gsm. For those of you not familiar with this collection, Colorset has 26 colours and is made from 100% Recycled fibres. All colours are available in 120, 270 and 350gsm. Amongst other uses, it's become a firm favourite with Silkscreen printers.
Below are the fruits of their days printing, hung out to dry...
 Below is an image showing the printed results in the window of their Smithfield based studio:
The event was arranged by Creative Director, Clare Styles. What a fantastic thing for an agency to do. This is a truly engaging, interactive and creative activity for the whole company to get involved with - far more fun that a team building day paintballing!
