How We Collaborate: epl at the Inaugural Project Peacock Print Fair NYC
By: Eat Print Love |
It’s official – the inaugural Project Peacock Print Fair NYC was a major success. An evening of serious printspiration, the Project Peacock Print Fair is a showcase of the latest and greatest in print, bringing a wealth of info to creatives, marketers and students alike, direct from the printers themselves. I was lucky enough to be there for the inaugural event, brought to life by the amazing Deborah Corn. On Thursday, March 14, I spent an inspiring evening at the Angel Orensanz Foundation taking in the best that the print community has to offer.
Beyond checking out the amazing exhibitors, visitors were lucky enough to enjoy talks from the evening’s two keynote speakers, Trish Witkowski of Foldfactory and Tobias Degsell, founder of Combiner.
Trish did something amazing in giving us 20 print ideas in 20 minutes. A refreshing speaker delivering meaningful content, Trish provided great visuals and a ton of useful information for marketers, designers and printers alike. If you ever need an inspiring idea for a brochure, Trish has most likely done a video on it.
Tobias Degsell shared his incredible knowledge on the topic of creative collaboration – a theme critical to Project Peacock’s purpose, asking the audience to really acknowledge the power of trust in collaborative relationships. He spoke to the importance of small group collaboration, and the magic that happens when different players come together to see their needs met through the collaborative process, an idea that sits at the heart of Project Peacock.
The Project Peacock Print Fair will be on the road this year, with upcoming stops in Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. We’ve even heard whispers of a Project Peacock Print Fair visit to Toronto, Canada – we can’t wait to see what unfolds!
