Our designers attended the latest BLAB at Band on the wall in Manchester. Talks were from Tom Muller and Kyle Bean who both are extremely talented people.
During Toms’ talk, he spoke about not keeping to one area of design and how he is always flexible with what briefs he takes on. One day he could be working on a comic book logo, the next he could be designing a website for a popstar. He’s hugely influenced by comic books from a young age, and is now enjoying designing for the industry amongst lots of other things.
Kyle showed a great display of his work, he has such a incredible skill working with paper and other materials.
His portfolio really does speak volumes and you can see why he was worked for such a great list of clients in a short space of time. One particular piece I really enjoyed looking at was the advert he created for Peugeot. The hours that were spent to make a 30 second advert are mind blowing. Luckily Kyle had the animators from Aardman to help with filming. You can view the advert here.
A print was given out at the end of the talks which was designed by May Ninth. It’s a great print and is ready to be put up in our studio.
Here at Synergy, we are inspired by and passionate about all areas of design, not merely print and digital. Recently we attended the Interiors UK exhibition at Birmingham's NEC and were very keen to see the design trends for 2012.
We were not disappointed. Each hall had a different theme and contained a vast range of furniture, lighting, soft furnishings, fabrics, flooring and accessories. The cascading stands and demonstrations presented exciting interior themes, ranging from industrial, vintage and statement glamour!
It was a great way to spend our Sunday and we will certainly be able to use and digest the trends for 2012 into the ongoing work within Synergy... So watch this space.
Synergy sponsored and were represented by members of the creative team, at Blab 9, held in The Deaf Institute in Manchester recently.
Speakers Mat Heinl and Ian Anderson kept a packed forum entertained with their different presentational styles and invited us into their thinking and often amusing approach to how they work. The gulf between agencies/consultancies in terms of budgets, timescales and client buy-in is often wide, but the ‘show’ indicated that we all apply (or should do) the basic principles of the strategic/creative process to ensure we create successful and stunning work.
