The Road to 150: An Exclusive Talk with Brian French

In the design community, few paper companies are as heralded for their relentless support of design excellence than French Paper Company. Their decades long collaboration with prolific CSA Design has inspired, delighted, and made casual fans diehard followers through incredible printed ephermra, promotional materials, and continued commitment to exalting the craft of designing on pulp.

AIGA Toledo and Commerce Paper are delighted to present a one evening only LIMITED ENGAGEMENT that we truly do not want to limit at all! Alas, the long and winding road is calling, and French Paper company has designers all over the country to connect with. This traveling pop up show will pull up and unload a vast array of French Paper Company history, filling the nooks and crannies of the AIGA Toledo hq. As fast as it arrives, the show will vanish, so plan accordingly and leave an hour early to see a once in a lifetime collection. Relish in the designy goodness with your fellow design fans and do not miss this rare opportunity to view the treasures of the French Paper archives.

RSVP here for an exclusive talk with Brian French at 2:30pm and 4pm on Friday, April 20th at AIGA Toledo HQ.

The exhibit is free and open to the public from 2pm to 7:30pm on Friday, April 20th. 

About the Tour:

As we approach our 150th anniversary we have started to gather and reflect on past printed materials and promotional items. Seeing everything together, we knew this collection was too cool to keep to ourselves and that we had to bring the collection back to the people that made it all possible. With that, The French Paper Road to 150 Tour was born. An exhibit made up of 30 plus years of historical items will be traveling around the country, piloted by the French family themselves. City by city, the Road to 150 Tour will bring new meaning to the term work and turn.

This event would not be possible without the collaboration and support of a decades long supporter of all things pulp and pristine, be it a rare hard to find ragged edge paper stock, or simply the friendliest customer service around. We thank you, Commerce Paper, for your support and your vital collaboration in our community of designers.
