MPS Supports Local University Talent with Printed Pattern Art Project

< News overview


ARNHEM, Netherlands (February 04th, 2016) – Following MPS’s move to new headquarters in Arnhem, The Netherlands the company commissioned a local art student from the ArtEZ University of the Arts to create and execute a printed art design project for the new building’s decor. Marjolein Linders was the selected candidate for the project, and her creative art designs were printed on MPS presses.

After sharing what MPS envisioned in the project, the talented young Marjolein designed an abstract art pattern with a range of layers for final print on a flexo press. By combining four print sleeves with six printing colours (CMYK, red and blue), Marjolein found a way to create over a thousand variations of the original pattern. The printed patterns could be framed, applied as wallpaper, combined with other paintings or converted into shrink sleeves and labels.

Marjolein’s designs were printed on both the MPS EF flexo press and the hybrid EF SYMJET press, using a variety of colours and applications such as cold foiling. The colourful and vibrant printed art was used to decorate the offices, hallways and walls throughout the new MPS building and is enjoyed daily by employees and visitors to MPS.

Aakon Schüssel, Sales and Marketing director of MPS comments: “When it came time to integrate décor in the new MPS building, we approached a local Art University in Arnhem for the project, to also help support our new community. Marjolein surpassed all our expectations of the project, not only with her stunning designs, but with her ability to incorporate MPS’s dynamic culture, energy and press technology into her art. Marjolein’s designs are decorative, technically very well executed, and communicate her enthusiasm and tremendous creative ability. We thank Marjolein for her contribution to MPS and wish her continued success as an artist.”
