Following the highly acclaimed 2012 Proms season the BBC invited Premm to work again on the creative for the 2013 festival. The world’s largest classical music festival was launched by Roger Wright (Controller, BBC Radio 3 and Director, BBC Proms) last week at the Royal College of Music. As accessible as ever, across 90 concerts from 12 July through to 7 September the BBC Proms offers a summer of music-making that allows for the most diverse and exciting journeys. Highlights include the first ever performance of Wagner’s four Ring cycle operas in a single Proms festival, two Doctor Who Proms (in the 50th-birthday year of the ever-popular TV series), and also firsts for a Gospel Prom, an Urban Music Prom and a late night 6 Music Prom featuring Laura Marling, Cerys Matthews, The Stranglers and the London Sinfonietta. Let the summer begin! To view the season in full, visit bbc.co.uk/proms. Premm have worked with the BBC Proms on its branding and marketing materials since 2001.

Premm were recently invited to tender for the Create the Debate schools pack by the Parliament’s Education Service. The campaign was devised to encourage debating in the classroom for KS3, 4 and 5 across a range of lessons, including Citizenship, Politics & Government and BTEC Public Services. The pack is intended to be used in conjunction with BBC Three’s Free Speech online videos. Premm designed the multiple ‘clockwork teeth’ imagery to add a sense of fun to the campaign, and to represent the idea of many voices in a debating scenario.

Geared towards providing independent education and information to investors of all levels. The London Investor Show provides delegates with a forum to meet and speak to exhibitors, attend workshops and free seminars and listen to the views of some of the top investment experts in the country. This years event attracted record delegate numbers, plans for the 2013 show include an expanded programme of investment workshops, covering medium to longer-term investing, portfolio construction and management, EIS, Investment Trusts, and more live panel sessions. The London Investor Show 2013 will also feature an exhibition of AIM companies, presenting in the AIM Auditorium and available to meet delegates during the day.
Lisa Campbell, MD of Investor Conferences (UK) Ltd, said, “Working with Premm was an absolute delight – not only is the work of the highest standard, but the attention to detail, the instant responsiveness and the friendly but professional manner, all stacks up to a very efficient organisation. The initial designs for the re-brand of the London Investor Show were amazing. We have no doubt that by working with Premm on the rebrand of the event, we have significantly increased the success of the event. Thanks to Premm, the event was properly branded, with consistency throughout, from the early stage marketing and advertising right through to the staging and signage on the day itself.”

Where did the summer go? 74 concerts and another BBC Proms season over? Premm were delighted to have been involved in creating the 2012 BBC Proms brand for the tenth year. Having created the Proms mark and the illustration for the season we were invited to apply the identity to a number of applications. One of the most interesting was the application of the Proms branding to animated X-track advertising for the London Underground. Using the animated Proms logo and key season highlights, Premm designed and produced a number of versions of the film to be shown in rush-hour slots at key underground stations. To sum up the success of the 2012 BBC Proms season, played through one of the busiest summers London has ever seen, Fiona Maddocks from the Observer wrote as part of her review; “In this most surreal of summers – rain, diamond jubilee, Olympics, Paralympics, economic calamity, more rain – no one could predict whether the BBC Proms would triumph or stagger. In the final hours of the eight-week season, statistics were released like joyful helium balloons: 100,000 tickets sold on the first day of sales, 11 million watching on TV excluding the Last Night, 93% box office (only narrowly missing last year’s high of 94%) and perhaps most remarkable, though it may sound modest, 3,000 turning up for an organ recital….”

Premm recently won a pitch for the Houses of Parliament’s Education Service to design a visual identity for Art House – a new teacher’s resource pack and competition for primary school pupils. Developed and run by Parliament’s Education Service, Art House will be a new active learning project using the Parliamentary art collection and the broader work of Parliament to stimulate and celebrate creativity through teacher’s resources and a related art competition for KS2 (7-11) pupils. Art House will initially be launched as a teacher’s resource pack containing lesson plans, each exploring a specific work of art from the collection, as well as linking to a supporting video of Members of the House of Lords speaking about the art work, explaining why they like it and what is significant about it in relation to Parliament. Premm have been commissioned to produce the identity that will be applied to online use, promotional postcards and templates for the education team to populate.
