“We are delighted to host Anthony on our stand at Sign & Digital UK 2019″.

Furthermore, we can see this echoed in the ethos of Ministry of Upholstery also. Therefore, Anthony is a fantastic ambassador for embracing personalised digital textile print for the home décor market.”

At Sign & Digital UK, Devine will be showcasing the power of digital print from artwork creation to finished furniture.

Using several of his TV designs, he will be demonstrating various upholstery processes. Working on several projects to include a chair inspired by the Mona Lisa, the art of deep buttoning and more. On the YPS stand, he will be discussing how he took some of his most talked about designs from idea to realisation. In addition, why digital print has always been and continues to be his preferred tool, when it comes to creating cutting edge design.
