Central St Martins college had a unique collection of moving image art that was consigned to a dusty back room; unknown, unused and unloved.
From an uncatalogued mass of static information we exposed the collection, re-imagined and re-contextualised it making it relevant for students, researchers, the University and the art world. We created a digital space for this physical collection where people can explore and discuss artists and their works.
Yehudi Menuhin was one of the world’s great musicians. The Menuhin family approached us to redesign his website and reinvigorate his brand.
We were given access to an archive of photos and documents to gain a real sense of the man, the music, his philosophy and legacy.
We’ve been toying with the idea of an immersive art installation for some time. Our experience with beacons on a recent client project inspired us to experiment with the technology.
The result is a soundscape controlled by physical movement. Influenced by the ambient sounds of David Lynch, we collaborated with sound designer and composer Joss Albert.
We're currently working with a Brighton film production company on short film "Out There". We took these pictures on a recent location recce and found some amazing spots not too far from our doorstep in the rugged landscape of Cuckmere Haven and the echoing tunnels of Newhaven Fort.
The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music sets the standard for the highest quality music education and produces the best possible resources for music teachers and students everywhere. We were asked to provide a strategy to reposition the brand through new visual language and responsive website.
We identified core themes from ABRSM’s messaging framework and explored ways to express these through visual research and concepts. These themes included upholding the very highest standards, combined with the ideas of personal growth in music and life.
The Pioneers programme is a personal development programme for young students and is currently running at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy as part of Team Academy. We conducted filmed research to discover how students felt about the programme and the impact it had on their skills and confidence. We then ran a two day design hack with social entrepreneur, Darren Abrahams who originally developed the idea.
Pioneers walked away armed with new brand messaging, a variety of digital assets including a filmed interview and a clear plan of action for a 6 month campaign to build awareness and get investment.
National Star College is one of the leading colleges for students with physical, sensory or learning disabilities. They approached us with an idea to use beacon technology to support people with disabilities in the workplace.
We designed a digital experience and intelligent environment that communicates important task based information to apprentices in a way they understand.
Ember was funded by Innovate UK.
Hidden under a North London suburb is Churchill’s secret Bunker, codenamed Paddock - it was meant to be his last refuge if the Cabinet War Rooms in Whitehall were destroyed.
It is open to the public only twice a year, so we took the first opportunity to descend into the dank, subterranean maze of derelict maze of rooms and corridors.
On a recent trip to Dubai, we spent some time exploring contrasts: the vibrant trading vessels of Dubai Creek and the futuristic driverless trains of the Metro.
