The HP Designjet schools programme is the brainchild of Nelson Ferrari, sales and marketing manager at HP, who established the initiative with the intention of allowing the designers of tomorrow to learn on the best technology available today. When he first announced through Print21Online the offer of a wide format machine to any school with a bona fide graphic arts curriculum, he was inundated with applications.

To date HP has donated more than 50 Designjet large-format printers to educational institutions around the country. Ferrari confirms the criteria are expanding to include any secondary school, college or TAFE that makes an impressive contribution to the Australian design community.

“Many schools are unable to afford the latest technology,” says Ferrari. “This program enables students to output their work to a professional standard. In my opinion it is critical that students have access to the same platforms on which they will work when they graduate.”

To apply contact Nelson on the link below and tell him why your school, or your children’s’ school, should get a free Designjet.

Interested schools should contact for guidelines.
