We used to run a weekend class at The School of Life about how to write everyday things like CVs, dating adverts and complaint letters (Wwe still do training for companies) and we were honorary members of The School of Life’s Faculty. Which was like being a supply teacher but with more willing students (and wine).
We wrote things from time to time for The School of Life too. Minibar For The Mind was a collaboration between The School of Life and Morgan Hotels. When guests open the fridge at the Sanderson in London or the Mondrian in New York and LA, they might find our minibar and provocative conversation starters sitting amongst the Pringles, overpriced peanuts and a 50ml bottle of Smirnoff.
It could also be a priceless work of art one day after being on show at Vancouver Art Gallery’s Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life exhibition. Here’s what the New York Times said about it.
WHAT WE DID.
+ Writing training.
+ A one-off writing project (we do them when the brief’s as good as this one).
WHAT WE DIDN’T.
+ The design. Susanna Edwards and Joseph Harries did that.
" Thank you for making it relevant & USEFUL. 'lifechanging' isn't hyperbole!"
