|23 December 2009 – Happy Christmas|
The studio is now closed for the Christmas break. We have all flown out to tropical beaches drinking cocktails under palm trees. (Wishful thinking: actually most of us got stuck in miserable London as flights were cancelled due to the weather). Back on the 4th. Happy Christmas everyone.
18 December 2009 — A night at the Circus
We spent our first evening at the now up and running Circus club and witnessed performers doing acrobatics just above the large dining tables.
15 December 2009 — Student invasion
Frank Philippin, professor for graphic design in Darmstadt came to visit the studio with about twenty students from his class. We only showed them one single project but in every annoying little detail, explaining all technical aspects of the implementation.
10 December 2009 — Circus printing
Today we started printing everything for Circus, hopefully just in time for the opening next week. A few experiments again: printing on mirror board, laminating ordinary rough grey board and foil blocking crazy disco foils. All looking good so far.
10 December 2009 — Tea to hit the shelves soon
Tea will soon be available in shops and supermarkets. Today we got the first boxes back from the printer. We just hope we got the barcodes right.
27 November — Spaceballs
Tom Dixon asked us to design acid etched pattern and all packaging for one of his new products. We are just getting used to it.
23 November 2009 – Dummy Mania
I think we may have blown our whole design budged on making dummies... in layered Perspex, engraved mirrors, etched steel, on RGB led lights, coloured vinyl, etc, etc.
23 November 2009 – Chaos at the Circus
The Circus building site is a maze of cables, scaffolding, wood panels and insulation material. Hard to believe that there will be dancers performing here in about three weeks time.
23 November 2009 – New projects online
We have added three recent projects to the website.
→ TESS Management identity
→ TESS Newspaper
→ What On Earth packaging
12 November 2009 – Book Art
We just finished working on a book art piece for Znips, the hair salon we designed recently. Our multi-talented intern Rebecca bought lots of old books from a charity shop, chopped them into small strips and arranged them like strands of hair.
