April was a busy month for the Foundation. Moving from fashion to illustration, we sponsored three amazing events, heroing an array of fantastically creative talent.
Here’s what we got up to:
SCRT Co Shoreditch Pop Up
SCRT Co are a UK independent streetwear brand. They initiated as a small project in 2010, working with local artists to produce exclusive runs of fashion. The brand has grown hugely, but they still work with up and coming creatives to produce designs. They’re still as independent and forward thinking as when they started out, promoting creativity through bold design and detailing.
We sponsored their pop-up shop in Shoreditch from February to April. It began with an insanely busy launch event, with free t-shirts, music from Keep Hush and plenty of Pistonhead beers going around. Our Pistonhead fridge then remained a fixture in the shop to refresh and support the team throughout the duration of the pop-up.

The Ragged Priest X Kickers Launch Party
Originally an eBay vintage store based out in Essex in 2009, The Ragged Priest has grown to be one of the most creative and cool streetwear brands in the UK. Still independent, they bring a punk and grunge attitude to their designs.
When they asked if we could sponsor their latest collaboration with Kickers, the iconic, confident, stylish footwear brand, we were happy to oblige. The event saw a stream of people come through the London flagship Soho store, hydrated by Pistonhead Lager and given the first opportunity to buy the gorgeous new Kickers x The Ragged Priest shoes.

MM… FOOD: Blue Monday Press Exhibition @ The Studio Brighton
On 27th April, Blue Monday Press hosted MM…FOOD at The Studio in Brighton, an exhibition to celebrate food in pop culture. A multitude of work by emerging illustrators was on show, from a variety of local and international artists.
Food from Smack Tacos was provided, as well as beer from us, of course. A big turn out led to an immensely successful event.
