GF Smith – Beauty in the Making
Last month BinaryFold4 took a trip down to London to visit GF Smith‘s ‘Beauty in the Making’ event, exposing and exploring the art in the creative processes in collaboration with It’s Nice That, Monotype and the British Council’s Architecture, Design and Fashion department. The exhibition gave a behind the scenes insight into the various processes that are involved in producing the products and services that today we often take for granted.
After being greeted by some pretty impressive signage, the event went on to educate its guests through live demonstrations and workshops on the subjects of paper-making, letterpress printing and envelope-making to name a few. The exhibition also showcased a display of artwork from the Gill Sans archive, with original drawings by Eric Gill himself.
We left the event feeling inspired, and with a goody bag full of lovely GF Smith paper samples.
