We’ve swabbed the decks!

Tuesday 25 August 2020

Premm were approached by Portsmouth Historic Dockyard recently to work on their brand refresh. They were looking for something that would take the existing visual identity and bring a simplified, refreshed and a contemporary approach to it. The identity also had to work as an umbrella brand, tying in with other attractions such as the Mary Rose Museum and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. We decided to simplify down the current flags so they just stood for the brand initials PHD, this also allowed...

Player portraits

One thing the lockdown has given some of us is the opportunity to indulge in creative pursuits. A number of the Premm (extended) family have taken part in one such endeavour – producing illustrative portraits of English Premier League footballers for the MIFA 2020 project. MIFA – Missing In (the) Football Album – is the brainchild of designer, illustrator & art director Dave Will. Originally conceived in 2018 when Dave had the idea to illustrate all 254 players missing from the Official...

Once more unto the breach, dear friends!

Friday 01 November 2019

This was Premm’s second year working on Our Theatre, a community based schools programme run by Shakespeare’s Globe and performed inside the iconic Sam Wannamaker Playhouse. The performance for 2019 is Henry V and is unique due to it being split into 5 Acts, with a different group/school taking one each to create a varied piece of storytelling. The Harris Foundation for Lifelong Learning is supporting the production again and believes putting on performances such as Our Theatre develops...

Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love

Monday 04 March 2019

The Shakespeare productions are created specifically for young people, with 180,000 free tickets given to London school pupils focusing on a different play every time, this year being ‘Romeo and Juliet’. We used the concept of opposites, which is a strong theme within the play, to create the main image. The two main cast members were...

At one together

Thursday 15 November 2018

Our Theatre is a community based schools programme run by Shakespeare’s Globe. 80 actors from 4 schools in Southwark came together to present a one-hour production of Shakespeare’s ‘As you like it’ inside the Sam Wannamaker Theatre. Each school took a different act to perform from the story that day, having initially showcased the entire play to their school. This resulted in a varied and dynamic performance. Premm were asked to design the creative for this event, looking at the poster, programme...

Women, Work and Power

Friday 07 September 2018

Matchstick makers and musicians; brewers, bankers, bishops and Barbadian nurses.

Sharing, debating and celebrating our right to vote

Thursday 24 May 2018

Premm were asked to create a family friendly board game as part of Houses of Parliament’s Equaliteas campaign. Celebrating 90 years since the Representation of People Act, the board game showcases a timeline of events from then until the modern day in an engaging and fun manner. The players move around the board answering QUIZ and CAMPAIGN cards, learning historical facts as they go along. We designed the game layout to be printed onto a tablecloth, which fitted perfectly with the EqualiTeas idea...

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...
