Smith says, ‘We have been speaking with Pari [Taylor, head of marketingand promotion] from Fedrigoni for a while about a potential collaboration and the fact they were moving into a new space was perfect for us. The event was to celebrate printing and paper amongst creatives.

‘Anthony has an iconic style that would work well with the screen-printing process. His bold and to the point style was very effective for the event.’
