In the Digital Studio – Simon Purkis

24 Grey 002

Simon Purkis, Digital Studio Member has recently launched ‘Purling London’. The Purling London concept is contemporary luxury Chess sets that contrast traditional hand-carved Staunton pieces against abstract, modern art and light. Simon has been working with Yukako, londonprintstudio’s Digital Coordinator, to print the graphics for the bespoke chess boards. Simon describes his motivation:

“I wanted to create Chess products for fine art collectors and Chess players alike. I designed Purling London Chess sets to be unique, contemporary, beautifully shaped and coloured; but professional specification, recognisable, robust and straightforward to play. I wanted Purling London to challenge art lovers and captivate Chess fanatics.”
