Beautiful exhibition from MadeThought and GF Smith. The Beauty in the Making exhibition takes visitors through the history of paper and the process of its making through a series of public talks, workshops and exhibitions. The exhibition aimed to tap into designers increased interest in traditional techniques and highlight the authentic heritage of this brand.
Interested in using ‘what we have’ and celebrating the product, we created bold installations using stacks of multi-coloured paper which acted as signage and information points throughout the space. Introductory copy and gallery plans were then stencilled using GFSmith’s CAD cutting machine in Hull (on down-time from making box prototypes). Exhibits were placed onto coloured sheets with a single turned up corner to reveal the caption.
