We auctioned off each of the large format prints featured at our launch event and exhibition, with all proceeds going to the London College of Communication. This auction closed at the end of October 2016, thank you to all those who took part.
The unsigned standard version of Hey Studio's print is however still available to buy here
Vibrant Barcelona is home to Hey, a design studio specialising in brand identity, editorial design and illustration. The Hey team are famous for their use of geometry, colour and typography and opened an online shop in 2014 which showcases their passion for illustration and bold graphics.
“The idea is to pay a tribute to geometry and to the geometric abstract art. A genre that was popularised by avant-garde artists in the early twentieth century. Form and colours with countless readings and interpretations. Names like Kandinsky, Malevich or Mondrian are some of the pioneer abstractionists and big heroes of inspiration. Combining and playing with shapes, colours and stripes.”

London College of Communication
Strut and Fibre are supporting young print design talent by working with London College of Communication. The proceeds from this auction will mean more graduates can access LCC’s unique print facilities after completing their courses. It will help LCC open their print workshops at the weekend and in the evenings, giving graduates who want to continue developing their print practise a chance they couldn’t otherwise afford.
LCC’s letterpress workshop holds one of the UK’s largest collections of lead and wood type, while the print making workshop includes screen printing, etching, solar plate, collograph, embossing, lino cut, photo lithography and much more. Equipment from the 1880s combines with cutting edge technology, all guided by expert technicians. Increased weekend and evening opening means a diverse range of LCC graduate print makers can use these facilities, without compromising work or caring responsibilities.
