AMA
We’re rather proud of the latest issue #54 of AMA’s (Arts Marketing Association) JAM. It is always a challenge to find suitable images for the cover of this influential forum for professional marketers and promoters. We loved this evocative photograph of trapeze artists in shadow by Florence Delahaye. It perfectly expresses the ‘high wire’ relationship between financing the arts through fundraising and donations as an increasingly important part of marketing the arts.

Jean Paul Gaultier and friends at the Barbican

We visited the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition last week and enjoyed the effort made by the curators to engage with social media. Lots of encouragement to take photos. Most of the dummies faces were animated by moving image loops projected onto them of his models and celebrity clients – winking, smiling, opening their eyes or mouthing simple phrases. All showcasing JPGs fashion over three decades. The exhibition flows with the designer’s Gallic charm. The Barbican excels again with this the latest in a series of exhibitions about leading fashion designers.

UEA careers service ID

Sugarfree have created a vibrant new sub-brand identity CareerCentral for University of East Anglia Careers Service (UEA). The new identity sits under the UEA main brand, originally designed by Wolff Olins.

This bright, sunny poster announced the opening of CareerCentral’s new building, with signage, wayfinding and wallpapers designed by Sugarfree.

Signs of the Times

These clever needlepoints by artist Michelle Hammer depict public information, both the moving, pixelated variety and static. She employs the technique to undermine the disproportionate importance we give to digitized media, while the imagery exploits the contemporary urban landscape.

She draws our attention to those cluttered corners that are ‘unplanned’ and so very revealing of how our city spaces are prioritized. As contexts for her subject, these marginal plots provide the perfect backdrop to expose those deeply buried thoughts we all carry with us, as we go about our daily activities. Just love her work.
