100 Years of GFSmith Paper- General Outline
As the second half of the project focuses on creating a poster for GFSmith paper I began to do some initial research into the company I knew nothing about. After reading about the history of the company from family ties and blood lines to the difficulties the company has faced throughout its lifetime and throughout both wars, I definitly feel more interested and intune with the project. Learning that the company has survived even after suffering the fate of two wars and literally loosing everything, as the website puts it the buisness was at one point literally 'flattened', it gives a very strong visual image of flat paper and also the idea of a pop up, the company sinking to the ground and then building itself back up again.
