That was our week, that was... #6
Well, a week ago we were basking in an unexpectedly tropical Macclesfield. Now, as we sum up another busy week in the world of Ingenious Creative, the rain's hammering down and we've fired the trusty Jordangate House boiler into life to put the heating on. Work that one out, eh? Despite the unique micro climate of this part of Cheshire, we've been hard at work recently on all sorts of stuff. We did a day's photography at Cheadle Hulme School with our good friend Damien Maguire from Contact Digital, who as ever came up with some great shots. Here he is hard at work. It's a collector's item, this one...
We had no specific shot list, and the only brief as such was to capture the essence of this wonderful School - the character of the place and the people within it. You'll start to see these shots come through in the work we're doing for CHS over the coming weeks, but we're really happy with what we've come up with.
In fact, Cheadle Hulme School has been a big part of our work this year. It's the largest client we've brought into the agency for a year or so, and we're delighted with how things are going. We've recently completed several large projects for them, namely a School magazine and also a lovely 144 page PUR bound yearbook, known as 'The Waconian' (CHS was originally the WArehousemen and Clerks School, hence the term 'WAC').
In other news, we've been working on a new exhibition identity for People's History Museum, a range of new brochures for Manchester Business School, and also, seeing as the festive season is approaching, our third Christmas interactive for MBS. Coming hot on the heels (well, almost a year later, actually) of 2010's "Carrots for Questions" we're looking forward to getting this one out, and will share the development of the project here, so keep your eye on the blog for more info.
Whilst we're on the digital front, we've just finished JP Motorsport's new website. Those of you who follow Ingenious will know the JP in question is our mate and uber-quick racing driver, James Pickford. You can see the site here, so go have a look and let us know what you think.
Next week promises to be another busy one, with a trip to "that" London for Paul on behalf of MBS, and a number of client visits to the office. Which is still sporting a half-painted exterior. It's a long story...
