That was our week, that was #17

Just a quick one from us this time as it’s been fairly hectic here. As we type the glorious leader’s on his way back from London where he’s been meeting with the wonderful Imperial War Museum, plus researching a number of locations to help us with a forthcoming project. Hush hush at the moment, but we’ll tell you more as soon as we can. Oh, the secrecy…Continuing the museum theme, our friends at Manchester Jewish Museum have been really pleased with the children’s ‘dressing up corner’ we designed for them recently, to coincide with the festival of Purim. As soon as we get some pics, we’ll put them up…

In addition to the IWM project, the studio is crackling away under a heavy but interesting workload, most notably new projects for the ever-interesting Cheadle Hulme School and also a pair of brochures we’re presenting to a new client next week. Perfect time for our colour printer to start being difficult. Not. That, plus a few other ‘admin’ issues will be tackled over the weekend, giving us a decent start to the week. In terms of recently completed work, it’s print all the way, with a couple of Manchester Business School brochures and this nice little piece for CHS, which outlines the future long term strategy of the School.

Forward thinking...

We have also recently completed the CHS former pupils yearbook, known as The Old Waconian (Waconian being the name for pupils of the school – see previous blog entries for a history lesson!)

WAC - Warehousmen & Clerks, dontchaknow...

The ongoing refurb of Jordangate House continues in conjunction with our neighbours, Axis Accounting. We’ve been working together over the last two years to bring our home up to scratch, and the next phase is about to commence. We’re going to be splitting the floorspace equally, and we’ll be moving to the top floor (always thought we’d get to the top one day!) to give us amongst other things, more space, a better view and importantly, closer proximity to the kitchen! All this means that the legend that is ‘Derek the Decorator’ will soon be back in, and to match the new interior, we’re getting the front of the building refurbed and painted, to match the back that was done last year. The front is slightly more problematic in that we need to get scaffolding erected, but it’ll be worth it when it’s finished, as the saying goes. Whilst we’re up there, we’re also going to be putting a flag on our tragically unadorned flagpole. Watch this space!

Soon to be painted!

Lastly, and to celebrate our glorious leader’s discovery of this new thing called instagram (he’s only just found out the Titanic has sunk!) here’s one of his latest masterpieces, of a bright yet moody Macclesfield. Hidden talents, you see…
