The G . F Smith Heritage Cases showcase a display of iconic printed pieces from their archive that have become a celebration of the company’s proud design heritage.
The work, all commissioned by G . F Smith, includes pieces by some of the greatest names in the history of graphic design, art and photography, including Sir Peter Blake, Milton Glaser, Saul Bass, Paul Rand, Peter Saville and Rankin.
For more than 130 years G . F Smith has consistently sought out and worked with the best creative practitioners. These collaborations have resulted in a catalogue of truly groundbreaking and iconic promotional materials. The cases will be on display at Birmingham Design Festival showing a retrospective of that body of work, and is a rare chance to study the work that lies behind a story of extraordinary design and marketing innovation.
