Last week we had the opportunity to attend the FESPA awards in Hamburg for the fifth year. We have previously won bronze and silver awards, but we were delighted to walk away with a gold award this year for our project at Medway Hospital, Kent.
FESPA is a global federation for the screen printing, digital printing and textile printing community and the awards bring together printers from across the world to celebrate the very best in print innovation and achievement.
Our winning project was designed with Hospital Art Studio and was the third in a series of installations we have completed in celebration of organ donation at NHS units across the UK. We topped the glass, ceramic, metal and wood products category with our formation of flying birds installed across the walls of the hospital entrance space.
The judges commended:
‘This entry demonstrated a perfect use of UV inkjet on butler finish dibond to create range of corroded metal effects.’
Director at Digital Plus, Owen Russell, said of the win:
‘It’s fantastic to be recognised internationally within your industry, but even more so when it’s for such a worthy project. It has been so rewarding working with Hospital Art Studio on The Gift of Life projects, helping to beautifully commend the selfless gift that is organ donation across the country.
‘FESPA represents the coming together of our industry’s leading innovators and to be included in the awards for a fifth year running is a real honour and a credit to the capabilities of the whole Digital Plus team.’
