Trade shows are necessary to get people in the industry together all in one place and to see new stuff. The Imprinted Sportswear Show in Long Beach is no exception, in fact it is probably the biggest gathering of the tribe. Too often it is isolating and frankly boring, but it doesn’t need to be. The Ink Kitchen is a small step in trying to get people together to share ideas, to highlight folks doing good work, and if you are doing all this work it doesn’t mean it all has to be shite, you might as well have a good time doing it. We aim for that. We actually did have a good time, in no small part thanks to our sponsors who support us day to day as well as for this show. Here’s two minutes of animating the show a bit. Rock on.
