Founded in 1888, Fedrigoni is an Italian paper manufacturer specialising in the production of fine papers for traditional and commercial printing, publishing, packaging and labels. A significant part of its production is made-to-measure, alongside its collection of more than 3,000 products available worldwide.
“At Multiplicity, Fedrigoni hopes to inspire visitors through the expressive power of paper”
The expression “nonverbal communication” declares the transmission of messages or signals through a nonverbal platform such as eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, posture, and the distance between two individuals. But we think of this form of communication playing also a hugely important role in the print products we produce. It is always about the relationship between human beings and the objects and physical identities we create.
Within seconds the quality rating of a print is made even without knowing what brand stands behind the print. The feel, the structure, the paper quality of the product and the embellishment like hot foil stamping, embossing and laser-cutting all contributing towards the general impression of the product you see before you. The coherence here is the key. Not selecting a paper you like but selecting the paper which matches with all the elements is the principal challenge.
Shaping the impossible sounds a bold claim. But to find out what is possible or not we have to test ourselves to exceed the line of feasibility. Without that we will never truly know. And what’s not feasible this year can still be feasible next year. We constantly elevate our experience, our knowledge and invest time in the technological changes to help us with new approaches to our work. The most important thing to us is the culture and mentality in our studio. The collective ambition to improve the knowhow and deep understanding of print and print finishing. To be a fundamental and integral part in delivering that nonverbal communication.
The Whitechapel Centre
The Whitechapel Centre is one of the leading homelessness and housing charities for the Liverpool region. We work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels, or struggling to manage their accommodation. Our mission is to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic, tailored support so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential.
We’re open 365 days a year to provide hot food, showers, laundry facilities, and housing advice and support.
Our services include Street Outreach, supported accommodation for both single people and families, harm reduction, learning and enablement activities, housing and welfare advice, peer mentoring, and a private rented bond scheme. All of our projects reflect the diverse routes into and through homelessness.
