Graphix Supply World has announced a collaboration with FEDISA, a leading South African fashion university, which will involve the company working closely with FEDISA students on collaborations and projects that will see the aspiring young designers being exposed to the growing, fast-paced printing industry.
Visitors to the Graphics, Print and Sign expo, which runs from 14-16 September at Gallagher Convention Centre, can see a showcase of the students’ design work on Graphix Supply World’s stand. The printed artwork will include textile and apparel, design and graphics, as well as industrial products, all under the theme and inspiration of African architecture, fauna and flora. The designs will celebrate the best of African culture, fashion, art and interior.
Graphix Supply World recently visited FEDISA campuses in Cape Town and Johannesburg and met with students to discuss the ever-changing and rapidly evolving world of print. ‘We want to be able to give back and invest in the students,’ said Rob Franco, MD at Graphix Supply World. ‘FEDISA will be our exclusive student collaboration partner. Our discussion with the students and faculty leaders was incredibly fruitful and we’re looking forward to seeing how their passion shines through in this partnership.’
‘Graphix Supply World will be using some of the students’ design work on the road at events around South Africa and the rest of the world, as well as in our showrooms in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. It will be great to see how local culture and distinctly African design can truly stand out – we know what these students are capable of and now we’re ready to show them off,’ said Franco. ‘We’re excited to see what FEDISA students will come up with.’
