Vote100

Tuesday 06 February 2018

Today marks 100 years since Parliament passed a law that allowed the first women, and all men, to vote. The Houses of Parliament approached Premm to create a graphical montage for their Vote 100 campaign, which celebrates this milestone through various activities, exhibitions, talks and tours. Using a timeline device to represent the period of time that has passed since this milestone, we added strong images of women throughout recent history to showcase the development of women’s rights up until...

Rhythm and Hues – Q&A with illustrator Lee Hodges

Wednesday 09 August 2017

We have worked with illustrator Lee Hodges for a number of years now in creating bright, vibrant visuals for the RHS Gardens’ Family campaigns. The colour, texture and sense of fun that Lee’s style has makes it perfect for attracting families to the RHS Gardens to take part in the varied activities on offer, and maybe pick up some gardening knowledge along the way! We asked Lee a few questions to find out more about his creative process and what inspires him. 1. How would you describe your approach...

The Great Garden Game

Monday 04 April 2016

Discover the secrets of Hampton Court Palace with The Great Garden Game! After being approached by Historic Royal Palaces Premm was asked to create materials to engage and excite children and families visiting this historic site. This was a terrific design brief for us to work with, as we were allowed to be more experimental with the formats we used and production processes involved; to enhance the visitor experience of discovering Hampton Court Palace. The materials we produced comprised of a large...

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...
