Printing for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
It was our privilege to work with some of the organisers of the opening and closing ceremonies for both the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games. Their vision and our expertise in both digital and hand printing brought together the incredible iconic prints which were viewed by millions. We contributed the newspaper print featured in the Olympic closing ceremony and the cloud & sky print used to make costumes in the Paralympic opening ceremony.
