My Stockport poster takes cover design of the year
One of my works has helped a Stockport firm win a national award.
Hatters, a leading North West promotional merchandise company based in Heaviley, won the cover design of the year at the Advantage Group brochure launch event with an adaptation of my Hats off to Stockport poster.
The finishing touches were done by Future Design, another Stockport-based company.
Hosted at the 4-star Georgian country house hotel Sopwell House, the Advantage Group brochure launch takes place annually, bringing together merchandise distributors from across the country.
Hatters has just celebrated its 25th anniversary, and it seemed fitting that it should be marked by an image of the iconic Battersby Hat Works in Offerton - a symbol of Stockport’s industrial heritage.
Founded in 1994 by Managing Director Jo Shippen, Hatters has grown year on year and has worked with scores of national and blue-chip brands.
It specialises in promotional merchandise, print management and product fulfilment – including ordering of stock, storage and delivery.
Jo Shippen said: “I’m delighted that Hatters has been recognised for the brochure cover this year.”
“It means a lot to me – and the team, that it has coincided with our 25th anniversary and I couldn’t be prouder to be celebrating our milestone achievement in this way.”
