We're in Leicester today measuring up for a new mural.

On the way we spotted this fine gentleman - Mr Thomas Cook - complete with a his suitcase. His journey began in 1841 with a single train ride from Leicester to Loughborough.

He did rather well after that.

We love telling stories from the past using the media of the future. So today we were at the brilliant WXG conference talking bots, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, the future of banking and the latest developments in social behaviour, branding and advertising. Inspiring.

We are delighted to be working with the Women's Engineering Society advising on storytelling and design in the lead up to their centenary celebrations. They were founded in 1919 when a group of women engineers who had made a significant contribution to the war effort objected to being dispatched back to the kitchen once the war was over.

They decided to campaign instead to support more women working in engineering. Their founders had close links to the suffragette movement and even today WES continues to use the suffragette colours - Green White Violet - standing for Give Women Votes!

Hachette: The Author Mural wins best interior project at the 2016 british sign awards

03/11/2016

 

We are feeling both proud and humble today to have won our first agency award for our Author Mural at Hachette UK.

Proud because it was a labour of love from the depth of our research into nearly 250 years of literary history to the drawing by hand of 4,000 author names.

Humble because we were up against some seriously stunning projects that were also shortlisted, including a beautiful display of paper butterflies for Monsoon. Wow.
