Uni-ball and The Range celebrates new store
Uni-ball and POSCA artists had the most amazing time helping The Range celebrate a new store opening in Plymouth.
The Range is now the fastest growing retailer in the UK. With more than 150 stores nationwide. The retailer stocks more than 65,000 products across 16 different departments, from homewares and furniture to DIY and art supplies.
The Range sells both POSCA paint markers and uni-PIN pens as well as our writing ranges. We were delighted to come along with our uni-ball artists SPZero76 and Scott Walker . Our amazing creatives took part in the festivities with the retailer and encouraged the people of Plymouth to enjoy the pens!
Made to measure
The fantastic SPZero76 wowed store visitors with personalised baseball caps customised with POSCA pens. Using his trademark illustrative style, the artist used the paint markers to make bespoke headwear on demand!
SPZero76 is an illustrator and street artist based in Bristol. As well as working with POSCA, his recent clients include Lamborghini, Samsung, The BBC, Cubanisto, Posca, Rip Curl, Red Bull, Mambo, Boulogne Council and Peavey. His portfolio includes magazine art, wall art, album covers, flyers, computer game art, corporate illustration, children’s trading cards and t-shirt designs. SPZero76 also produces live art for businesses, festivals and club nights and he has been involved in many successful exhibitions at galleries throughout Europe.
Scott Walker created a live colouring-in mural for visitors to enjoy. The fabulous installation featured Walker’s wonderful collection of characters that were brought to life with POSCA in this exciting live collaboration.
Scott Walker is a UK based artist and illustrator whose interactive cartoon installations draw inspiration from contemporary character design, outsider art and urban street culture. As well as presenting at events and festivals, Scott works as an educator where he teaches contemporary character design that aims to promote confidence through creative exploration and play.
The day was hugely successful. People of all ages got involved – including the owner of the company, Chris Dawson.
We’re looking forward to more collaborations with The Range and are excitedly anticipating more store openings – watch this space!
