Studio News – FESPA DIGITAL Round-up

FESPA Digital, which took place last week in Amsterdam has been hailed a huge success by the Roland DG team & everyone involved in the show & we are so thrilled with our collaboration! Some of our lovely Make it in Design graduates stopped by the stand too.

Global printer manufacturer Roland DG & Rachael collaborated for this year’s FESPA which saw visitors to the Roland DG stand see how easy & rewarding it can be working with designers to transform designs into a number of highly profitable applications using Roland wide format digital print technology.

The Roland DG team have put together this short video from the show featuring Rachael’s designs being printed on their Texart XT-640 dye-sublimation printer and professionally heat transferred using their Texart CS-64 calender system.


One of our lovely The Ultimate Portfolio Builder graduates attended the show & stopped by the Roland DG stand.

Inge Van Bruggen from Studio Mola Mola in the Netherlands chatted to Roland staff, watched demonstrations of the latest printing kit, saw what different technologies can offer a designer like herself as well as discovered the benefits to working in collaboration with printers.

They kindly sent us these pictures of Inge sporting her fabric bags featuring our designs:



Here’s a few photos of more visitors to the Roland DG stand at FESPA enjoying their free bags!
