We’re pleased to announce that Aardman has collaborated with Bristol Pride to design a limited run of consciously produced t-shirts and tote bags, celebrating what it means to be a diverse and inclusive city.
Earlier this year, we invited Aardman partners to submit their designs, and the winning entry ‘Show Your Colours’ was created by Junior Set Dresser and Prop Maker, Georgie Ball.
Pauline Mallam, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager at Aardman said: “We are honoured to have a creative partnership with Bristol Pride this year. We are proud to take part in the celebrations and continue our journey towards a fairer and more representative industry.”
Bryn Evans, Marketing and Communications Manager at Bristol Pride added: “All of us at Bristol Pride are so happy to have collaborated with a local legend such as Aardman. We’re so excited to launch our fundraiser tees and tote bags which totally encapsulate the community of Pride and Bristol’s unique spirit. Make sure you grab one and remember to show your colours!”
The t-shirts and tote bags will be available to buy from bristolpride.co.uk and The Pride Hub, College Green from Monday 3rd July, and The Queer Emporium stall on Pride Day which takes place Saturday 8th July. All proceeds go directly to Bristol Pride.
Aardman is committed to building a workforce that is truly reflective of our society, underpinned by a core belief that having a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential if we are to successfully deliver on our mission, to create animated comedy entertainment for all, and our vision, to be the most inspirational animation company in the world. We will ensure diversity and inclusion is inherent to the development and production of all our content – both on and off screen.
