History made on paper
Key figures in the creative world were invited to join GFSmith at their exclusive heritage event in London, held over five days in June 2010.
For over 125 years GFSmith has consistently worked with the best graphic designers, photographers and artists. These collaborations have resulted in a catalogue of truly groundbreaking and iconic promotional materials.
Running between 7th and 11th June, the event, titled 'Art on paper since 1885', was a retrospective of that body of work, and a rare chance to study this visual story of extraordinary design and marketing innovation.
Held at 33 Portland Place, a remarkable eighteenth century London town house, the exhibition comprised original printed pieces, displayed in handcrafted cases or as framed works, by some of the greatest names in creative history, including Sir Peter Blake, Saul Bass, Peter Saville, Paul Rand, Milton Glaser and Rankin.
