Show Sixteen

Tuesday 31 May 2016


For the past couple of years Sophie has travelled back to the University of Lincoln, where she graduated from in 2011, to do a bit of talent spotting at the Graphic Design Degree Show. Last year Sophie attended Show{Fifteen} and recruited me to intern here at Premm. It’s amazing how time flies, because that it’s that time of year again, but this time it was my turn – having since joined the Premm team as a designer – travelling back to Lincoln, now as alumni, with fellow designer and blogger...

Pick Me Up 2016, Kitching & Friends!

Friday 29 April 2016


It is very rare we get the chance to go out as a whole bunch of us from Premm, so when Pick Me Up opened its doors at Somerset House for 2016 we were all very much up for it! I mean who doesn’t love seeing what the cultural arts have to offer each year, especially when some bring such a smile to your face like these Little ‘Floam Buddy’s’ did to Jess’. (Pictured: Floam Buddy TRIO, by Julian Glander) We all had our favourite pieces, Sophie was particularly taken with these beautiful Pastel...

Event Goodies

Who doesn’t like free beer, free food and not to mention… FREE PAPER?! As designers we tend to get a tad excited by new ranges and stocks. So, when our newest recruit Jessica got the opportunity to tag along with designer and blogger friend Natasha to G.F Smith’s launch party for their new Gmund Applied collection, she jumped at the chance. Held in the basement of Bierschenke, London’s Authentic Munich Beer Hall at Moorgate. We descended down the steps and were greeted by a designer’s...

What country, friends, is this?

Tuesday 08 March 2016


Premm has been commissioned to work on promotional materials for the Globe Theatre’s Playing Shakespeare production now for 5 consecutive years. Twelfth Night was the chosen play this year for the 2016 performance; and one of Shakespeare’s more tragic comedies focusing on love, loss, identity and the sea. In contrast to last years design for the production of Othello, Twelfth Night’s main concept focused on using photography of one of the cast members. This was an interesting process for us...

Merry Stitchmas

Friday 18 December 2015


This year Premm asked newest recruit Jessica to work on our annual Christmas mailer. As she has a background in doing her own cross-stitches we felt that we could use this to create a hand-crafted piece of design for this year; as well as referencing the knitted quality of the traditional festive jumpers. Jessica began by designing on the mac before transferring this into stitching. The piece was then ironed and framed, before being staged and photographed. We feel it is important to still use techniques...

Grand Budapest Hotel Poster

On Tuesday, we were in attendance at St Bride Foundation to hear Annie Atkins talk us through her career as a graphic designer for film. Focussing on her work on the Wes Andersen movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’, we were treated to a peek behind the scenes into what is required to create the multitude of props and graphic set pieces needed to create a believable environment for the audience and...

Embrace Kenya – enabling young people to flourish

Wednesday 30 September 2015


Wendy, our finance director, has just returned from her second trip to Kenya. She was so impacted by what she saw this time that she decided along with a couple of friends to set up a new charity – Embrace Kenya. The charity will support and assist the work of the RUSH Academy, a thriving school based in Kakamega, Kenya. Many orphans and vulnerable children are benefitting from receiving a well-balanced education, allowing them to break free from the cycle of poverty. As part of our corporate...
