Various Stages

Friday 06 January 2017

Following on from our long term relationship with Mahogany Opera Group (since 2014, when we redesigned their brand), we were recently invited to design an identity for their Various Stages initiative.  As a core part of their work, the Mahogany Opera Group explores and promotes a contemporary blend of new music, performance and theatre. Various Stages forms a vital part of this focus, as part of their press release explains; “Various Stages blurs the line between process and performance....

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...

Bridge of Sighs, St John's College, Cambridge

Premm recently won a tender for St John’s College, Cambridge, developing a distinctive brand for the new St John’s Cambridge record label in partnership with Signum Classics. The internationally-renowned Choir of St John’s Cambridge is the main artist on the new label, so the decision was made to build on the strength of its branding and that of St John’s College, one of the largest colleges in the University of Cambridge. The Bridge of Sighs (pictured at the top of this post) is an iconic...

A slightly delayed look back on 2015 – another busy year for Premm! The last twelve months featured our usual varied selection of projects, from mindfulness opera to super-powered sweetcorn! 2016 is already nearly a month old, but hopefully it is not to late to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year!

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...

A mindfulness opera

Friday 06 November 2015

Premm had the great pleasure of recently working on the latest production by Mahogany Opera Group, Lost in Thought, the world’s first ‘mindfulness opera’. Based on the classic structure of an extended meditation, it explores the points of contact between sound and silence in music and meditation.  The production has been specially designed for an intimate audience, with the boundaries between performer and audience blurring as you go on an inner journey of mindfulness, with periods of meditation,...

Commute Nice London

Tuesday 21 July 2015

As many of the Premm employees are keen cyclists we decided to see what the Commute Nice London exhibition at KK Outlet was about this weekend. The pieces focus on the hate towards, and from, cyclists on the roads. Statistics reflect this hatred, 23,000 accidents and 80 deaths in London in the last 5 years, so far 8 people have died in bike accidents this year alone.   The exhibition features a great line up of illustrators, artists and designers. Sophie’s favourite contributor was Alex...
