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.

A mindfulness opera

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...

A madness shared by two

Monday 12 January 2015

Premm recently created the marketing image for Mahogany Opera Group‘s new production Folie À Deux. With music by Emily Hall, and words by Sjon, the opera is based on a story of Insanity, electricity and love. These themes collide in a voyage into the shared psychosis known as ‘folie à deux’, where a delusion is transmitted from one person to another. A woman is struggling to connect with her lover. He believes that the pylon outside their house has a special power.  His delusion passes...
