On the record

Wednesday 22 January 2020

Back in 2016, we shared our branding work for the St John’s Cambridge record label (in partnership with Signum Records). The label releases new recordings by the internationally-renowned Choir of St John’s Cambridge, and students and alumni of St John’s College, one of the oldest and largest colleges in the University of Cambridge. During the branding process, we suggested that the new logo and typography could be combined with circular images on record covers with a view to creating...

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 Bridge of Sighs (pictured at the top of this post) is an iconic...

The Rinse Cycle

Following our rebranding work for Unexpected Opera, we were pleased to attend a performance of their latest production, The Rinse Cycle – ‘Wagner’s Ring cycle conditioned with comedy and shrunk to 2 hours’ … and set in a laundrette! In shrinking the (XXL) cycle of four operas – usually around 16 hours long – to one evening, Artistic Director Lynn Binstock set out to ‘create an entertaining, high-quality, low-risk introduction’ to Wagner’s Ring that would ‘reach out to people...

Pick Me Up is the UK’s first annual contemporary graphic art fair, showcasing the best new talent and also carrying out a multitude of events and workshops ranging from traditional screen-printing and animation, to risograph printing and paper craft. This year it felt particularly close to home for us, as both Hattie Newman, and the piece we worked on with her, featured in the event. She had a lovely display downstairs featuring photographs of her work as well as 3D models and sketchbooks she had...

Glug London – Super Bold Max

Monday 16 March 2015

Glug Stage

Last Thursday night, a few of us went to Glug London, an event for the design and creative community based around a series of talks and informal networking. The theme was ‘Future Fifteen’, focussing in particular on interactive and digital media. Established in 2007, Glug was trialling Fabric Nightclub as its new venue this year, which provided plenty of cavernous space for the 800 attendees, including two rooms between which the talks were shared. Having secured seats in Room 2, we saw...

Our visit to Pick Me Up 2014

Friday 02 May 2014

Last night saw a trio from Premm visit the 2014 Pick Me Up exhibition at Somerset House. Now in its fifth year, it was the usual wide variety of artwork on display, from the curated Pick Me Up Selects artists through to a number of creative collectives. Alongside the illustration and graphics, one unexpected highlight was the light-hearted and occasionally surreal poetry of Matthew Hodson (aka Matthew The Horse) that we stumbled across towards the end of our visit. The show finishes on Monday, so...
