Multiplicity Bristol

Yesterday evening, we were pleased to be the sponsor of  Multiplicity in Bristol. Hosted by Foilco, this is the fifth multiplicity event held at various cities around the UK. Just over 200 creatives came together at the exhibition space at The Paintworks in Bristol to hear three great speakers.
The three Multiplicity speakers were as follows...

Stu Tallis from Taxi Studio

Graham Wood, founder of Tomato

Mark Paton & Kate Marlow, co-founders of Here Design

They were introduced by Matt Hornby, Sales Director at Foilco, pictured below.
The event was a total sell out and the money raised from the nominal ticket price was all donated to local Bristol charity, Studio Upstairs. The event was also supported by the West of England Design Forum (WEDF).

During the talk by Stu at Taxi Studio, a new initiative was introduced - they launched WEDF UP ... a design community advancing women's aspirations in the West of England. It was apt for Taxi to launch this campaign as at Taxi, they have more female staff than male. It was two of their (female) staff came on stage to make the announcement. A really interesting campaign, you can read more about it here.
During the day, the Foilco team ran a series of hot foiling workshops for both students and creatives. The below picture shows the workshop set up (and the Fenner Paper stand too!)
 There were posters and giveaways, all produced on Fenner Paper - Colorset and our SUMO 1mm.
This is the fifth event hosted by Foilco at cities around the country. Multiplicity is curated by Dave Sedgewick at Studio DBD and he does a wonderful job, picking great venues and getting fab speakers.

...and now a plug for Foilco! This company has been serving the graphic arts industry for over 25 years, offering the largest range of hot stamping foils in all sectors. With a wealth of expertise on all types of applications, they have a wide range of colours and grades offering endless creative possibilities to designers the world over. This is their sample selection - if you are a graphic designer, you really should have one of these sample packs, which you can get by emailing
