“Are you busy?” It’s the meeting equivalent of being asked “Going anywhere nice?” in the hairdresser’s up-and-downy chair. And the answer’s yes. We have been busy. Too busy to update our blog for a while, in fact (at least that’s our excuse). Here’s what we’ve been up to:
Now (projects we’ve just added to ‘Our Work’ page)…
And next (a peek at what else we’ve been up to)…
The National Gallery
With visitor numbers down, the National Gallery asked us to help make their writing less ‘distant’. And how do you make the old masters must-see again? We’ve been working on their tone, writing guidelines and training their teams. Now we’re in the middle of a campaign for the upcoming ‘Monet and Architecture‘ show.
One exhibition featuring Monet’s paintings and nothing else? That’s a rare thing. The last time the UK hosted a Monet exhibition like this was almost 20 years ago. But 'The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture' opening 9 April, is not just rare, it’s never been done before. There’s never been a single exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London, and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic, simple and grand. This is a new way of looking at Monet’s work. It shows how he used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser-known works. Book your tickets today via our website and save up to £5 with our early-bird offer ending 11 February.
