That was our week, that was… #10

Well, what a week it’s been. We’ve survived halloween, been confronted with Christmas briefs (work type ones, not underwear) and had a somewhat ‘challenging’ week with a number of different projects and clients. Still, it’s all good experience. Apparently…

As you may have noticed, the week began with Halloween. Committed Daddy that he is, our glorious leader pressed his creative skills into service in a slightly different direction. Making pumpkins. The world-class results can be seen below…

Moving on, yet another Daddy related story from Paul. We marvelled as he told of his cake icing exploits. Yup, Man City supporting, fast car loving Mancunian, turning his hand to icing a ‘Hello Kitty’ cake for his daughter’s sixth birthday. Ahhhhhh… Just goes to show, creative skills and an eye for detail really can transfer from one discipline to another.

Creative departure #2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Away from the oven, as mentioned above we’re starting to work on a number of different festive projects, most notably for Manchester Business School. For the last two years we’ve designed and produced an interactive game, and the same will be true this year. The 2010 production – ‘carrots for questions’ – was particularly well received, so no pressure then…bah humbug!

Appropriately in a week that contained Halloween, someone had a shock this week when they went into Jordangate House’s cellar, to be confronted with a selection of body parts. No, it’s nothing to worry about, and no, the police weren’t called, as it was simply due to our new neighbour and photographer Damien storing some mannequins down there. But hey, picture the scene. Early morning, no-one else in the (apparently haunted) building, “just down to the cellar to reboot the server, aaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!” For the sake of decency, expletives have been deleted…

Body parts. Terrified person not pictured...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re in the process of creating a new mailer, which will be out before the end of the year. As part of that we had a bit of a tidy up and put some of our most recent work together to be photographed. Work such as this press advertising for classic car parts brand Leacy, which we think looks pretty effective in print.

Flagging up decent work...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, those of you that follow us on Twitter may have seen this already, but Paul’s meeting with MBS this week took him past the old Factory Records offices on Charles Street, Manchester. Saddo (sorry, committed Manc and typography fan) that he is, he couldn’t resist taking a quick picture, and tweeting to remind everyone that the font was the same as one of the corporate fonts we use for Cheadle Hulme School. Your hash tag said it all, fella…

It's a derivative of 'Rotis' you know...
