In the design community, few paper companies are as lauded for their relentless support of design excellence than French Paper Company. Their decades long collaboration with CSA Design has inspired and delighted creatives through incredible printed ephemera, promotional materials, and a continued commitment to exalting the craft of designing on paper.
AIGA Cleveland and Parse & Parcel are pleased to present a one evening only limited engagement with Brian French on his Road to 150 Tour at the recently renovated historic Agora Ballroom. This traveling pop up show captures a vast array of French Paper Company history and inspiration. In addition to the exhibit, join us for an exclusive talk with Brian French at 5:30pm.
As fast as it arrives, the show will vanish. Don't miss this rare opportunity to view the treasures of the French Paper archives!
Swag alert: French has produced limited edition pieces just for the show and are only making them available to those who attend! Bring a bag and get there early!
About the Tour:
As we approach our 150th anniversary we have started to gather and reflect on past printed materials and promotional items. Seeing everything together, we knew this collection was too cool to keep to ourselves and that we had to bring the collection back to the people that made it all possible. With that, The French Paper Road to 150 Tour was born. An exhibit made up of 30 plus years of historical items will be traveling around the country, piloted by the French family themselves. City by city, the Road to 150 Tour will bring new meaning to the term work and turn.
