Recently I popped down to the Tate Britain for a spot of sign painting with London-based design studio Animaux Circus.
I spotted them whilst on the Premm visit to Pick Me Up this year where they were carrying out some tropical letter painting workshops. They are known for doing a variety of murals, mixing vibrant colours, typography and illustration for clients such as Southbank, Lovebox and The Queen of Hoxton.
The session started off with Animaux Circus doing a short presentation, introducing themselves, their work and their influences to get our juices flowing. We then had to discuss ideas based on a personal memory before transferring this into a design for the sign. It was great to sit down with other people and paint together, especially as some of the people there weren’t in the creative industries.
