The new additions work with type, patterns and imagery.
January 12, 2022
The Point.1888 is starting 2022 with some new color, pattern and impact thanks to the signing of three artists: Ben Eine, Emily Burningham and Real Hackney Dave.
They will be joining The Point.1888’s existing book of artists and designers, which includes interior design brand MissPrint and artists and designers including Rachel Ellen, Jimbobart and I Like Birds.
Ben Eine is a graffiti artist who uses type for his work, which can be found on the streets of London, L.A., Mexico City, Paris, Tokyo, Dublin and Stockholm. He has collaborated with Banksy and his work was once given to Barack Obama as a gift from the British Prime Minister.
Dave Buonaguidi (aka Real Hackney Dave) is a London-based artist making work that creates a reaction by combining the visual and verbal language of advertising with imagery and materials of found objects and ephemera.
London-based print designer Emily Burningham has a passion for pattern and color. Her designs explore the relationships between distinct eras of art and design.
Both Eine and Burningham have previously benefited from brand licensing activity, Eine having worked with Paul Smith and Louis Vuitton and Burningham with Liberty, Waterstones and Paperchase.
“Artists have been an important focus for The Point.1888 for many years, not least because of their ability to respond quickly to new consumer desires and trends,” says Janine Richmond, head of product and brand, The Point.1888. “For example, MissPrint’s bold colorways and nod to the biophilic trend was of great appeal to consumers wishing to bring nature indoors. Thanks to our talented team of specialists and our keen eye on retail trends, we’ve been able to bring our clients great success over the past few years and we’re confident we can build long-term, sustainable partnerships with Ben Eine, Real Hackney Dave and Emily Burningham too.”
Conversations with first phase partners for the artists are underway.
