AAF of Des Moines is hosting the hugely popular French Paper “Road to 150 Tour” on August 16. This expansive exhibit shows decades of their famously fearless printed materials and promotional items. Their rebel design style started with the desire to stand apart from their competitors and elevated them to one of the most recognized brands to graphic designers today.
Brian French , a 6th generation French, is the featured speaker and will tell the history of the company from its humble beginnings to the day the award-winning Duffy Design Group designer, Charles S. Anderson, came into their lives. By taking the risk and letting designers do what they do best, the French Paper Company brand was born. With a voice of humor and approachability, their print work holds its own against larger corporate mills at a fraction of their competitor’s budgets.
Field Paper is thrilled to sponsor this event. We will have a drawing for some gorgeous French Paper posters, so be sure to bring your business cards with you. We are one of French Paper’s local distributors and our Sample Department is a resource center for the creative community with loads of samples, printed materials and swatchbooks. Reach out to Megan Rold, our Spec Rep, at the event…she’s the ultimate go-to paper-person for graphics designers and marketers.
