NouvelleBox Magazine at LFW 2017

NouvelleBox LFW


at LFW 2017

28 September 2017

The NouvelleBox brand continues to expand beyond its core fashion portfolio and supplier database areas. As part of the network building aspects of this site, we all believed that a platform for discussion about the industry would be a brilliant addition to the strategy for this site. So, the Jobs Board and digital Magazine were always going to play a huge part in getting interactions up on the site and we are pleased to be working on more fully-fledged versions of them now.

Especially when you can see it playing a part in the home scene of London during Fashion Week. Check out the magazine here and read NouvelleBox’s reviews at London Fashion Week here.

South Square pupillage brochure

South Square pupillage brochure

South Square 

All in the details

10 September 2017

We are pleased to say there are some new projects in the offing here at CI. This includes a brand update with South Square Barristers Chambers. While we’re still developing the refresh for the online delivery, we’d like to share with you the first piece of print we’ve produced. It’s hard to avoid the draw of a traditional London law theme of the square mile and the architecture we see here, but creating a difference is key to the exercise.

South Square’s overarching quality is its people and their reputation. To celebrate this and attract the next generation of barristers we were commissioned to design their pupillage brochure. Using quotes, developing a family of icons and applying some traditional print techniques are just the beginnings to this update.

We look forward to showing the rest of the brand update as elements are completed, watch this space.

Phantom of the Opera

Phantom of the Opera

12 July 2017

A big thank you to Howard at Beachshore for providing a CI night out at the theatre. A web programmer by day and a stage lighting technician by night, Howard invited us along to see him at work at The Phantom of the Opera in the West End. We didn’t see him of course, as he was behind the scenes, but on top of seeing this iconic musical – we did get a to see back stage, the amazing Victorian engineering of all the moving stage parts and rigs, the hundreds of incredible props hidden and suspended out of sight and where all the trap doors are. However, we are sworn to secrecy so you won’t get any pictures from us!

Congratulations to Yoni Jesner Awards recipients!

Congratulations to 2017’s Yoni Jesner Awards recipients!

10 July 2017

Creative Interpartners have designed the branding for the Yoni Jesner Awards programme that supports 11-13 year olds to volunteer. The ceremony was an inspiring event to recognise the hundreds of young people who made a difference in their community, independently or through their schools or the JLGB. Joined by the Chief Rabbi; new volunteers and young ambassadors came together to review a brilliant year for making change and empowering youth.

National Army Museum – studio outing

National Army Museum 

Studio Visit

1 June 2017

It seems as the team is doing a cultural tour of Kensington and Chelsea of late! We worked on the fundraising material to secure the financial support for the National Army Museum to be completely revamped about 5 years ago, so we went along to see how the £24 million that was raised had been used to bring this institution back to life. And it really is a transformation.

Historic artefacts are now mixed in with interactive displays – including a virtual Drill Sergeant to shout at you on parade. Diaries and paintings of WW1 and WW2 are now brought to life in an immersive moving image installation where they are contrasted with modern accounts and video footage of battles in Iraq and Afganistan. Consequently this made for a powerful film about soldiers’ personal experiences. 

Each level of the museum now has curated themes that bring the army’s changing social relevance into focus. It’s not just the linear history of where’s and when’s from text books, but now the museum addresses different times and drivers of wars, alongside cultural and gender differences with the army.

The space has been divided into several almost self-contained exhibits, all of which you can see from the main atrium leading you around this great space, neon signs, layered posters, music and sound that is triggered to start as you walk past it and touch screens to investigate and huge animated timelines all gather together for a visit that keeps giving. Even for the most passive of visitors, a visual journey full of variety.

Studio visit to the Design Museum

The Design Museum 

Studio visit

28 April 2017

We finally made it to the Design Museum on High Street Kensington as a team, and it was refreshing to see the curation; design in history, culture, ethics, medicine – a wide range of themes to open questions about at what point (if any) does design not enter our lives. Here is a selection of our highlights. An incredible space; we look forward to visiting again and if you haven’t yet – we recommend it!

Kate’s pick:
Eames’ plywood leg splint

I’d only known Eames for their furniture design, so to see them making leg splints during WW2 surprised me. It seems like an obvious solution now, to make an inexpensive, lightweight item that needed manufacturing fast was ideal for their iconic plywood process. A brilliantly simple design idea crossing sectors.

Here’s some further information.

Rob’s pick:
Untitled film by Thomas Thwaites

This was a film about design’s role in the fight against climate change and used three joined screens to make the content as visually stimulating as the audio was. Produced by Thomas Thwaites, of living-like-a-goat fame, it is untraceable online, so if you are interested you’ll have to go to the Design Museum see it for yourself.

Tash & Kathryn’s pick:
How to Make a Tennis Ball 

There was so much to see in the exhibition that this video provided some welcomed hypnosis. A super satisfying watch. See for yourself:

We Were There Too in the community

We Were There Too 

in the community

10 February 2017

Since the launch we’ve been steadily working with the project team to refine areas of this site. With the potential for an enormous number of assets to be held in this digital museum, these initial stages of use provide us with lots of learnings from lots of different types of people in the community. How and why they are looking for things and what they then may want to contribute themselves.

Recently the team have been working with a large group in the community to digitally preserve a large collection of items, found in storage, that children created in WW1. This has been an ideal case study for the use of the site. Creating profiles, uploading drawings, poems and reflections by people at the time, and then being able to share them with the present members of the synagogue and their children. The reaction to the importance of being able to do this, the insight it brings and the ability to preserve them as an educational resource has sparked wider interest and has appeared in the news.

It’s really motivating to see it now in use; assets in place but, more importantly being read and shared. We look forward to developing the site further as the collection grows.

Goodbye Dippy! The Natural History Museum

Goodbye Dippy!

Goodbye Dippy!

The Natural History Museum

26 November 2016

He’s a bit of an icon around these parts – of course in South Kensington, that could be referring to a lot of people, but we’re talking about Dippy the Diplodocus skeleton at the Natural History Museum.

As the Hintze Hall there is changing he’s being taken on a tour – the first move he’s made since being on display since 1905. That’s why we feel he’s quite a local icon and takes a memorable spot in a lot of people’s childhood and adult memory, somehow no matter how much we grow up, being able to see the scale of an animal like this will always be somewhat magical. So it’s no wonder people are a little uncomfortable seeing a change for this display. 

The Museums here are amazing destinations to have on the agency’s doorstep and we look forward to seeing the new exhibit when it launches, but it was time to make one last visit before he goes. If you can’t see him before he leaves, find out where the tour is, here.

Dragon’s Den with JLGB and NCS

Dragon’s Den

with JLGB

18 August 2016

It’s been an inspiring day for Kate, as she was invited by the JLGB Team to be a ‘Dragon’ on the panel of their National Citizenship Scheme (NCS) Dragon’s Den style pitch day, critiquing the social action plans the volunteer teams had developed.

 70 Young people have spent their summer holidays devising projects and now they pitch them to the Dragon’s in a bid to get £1,000 to put their plans into action supporting and highlighting causes like Crisis, WaterAid, Food distribution charity FareShare, and a Brixton-based Soup Kitchen.

Each team told the panel about the volunteering placements they took part in and then what companies they visited to learn about Photography, event management, catering, digital PR and more. These experiences then all lead to them formulate a plan, with expected budget and outcomes of their own to highlight a cause they felt was important.

Kate said the imagination of everyone there was brilliant and the pitches were very professional, the teams had spent time practising and thinking through the detail of how they wanted to make people aware of problems; it made you think afresh about some causes that we get used to hearing about and how we could engage with new audiences – they were really determined and it was exciting to see how the conversations during the pitches and afterwards carried on developing their plans. We can’t wait to see how the projects turn out – well done everyone there!

Daikokuya opening – New Bond Street

Daikokuya opening 

New Bond Street, London

20 July 2016

It’s been all hands on deck branding and implementing the Daikokuya opening. The new brand from Japan making it’s debut here, but not just anywhere – luxury shopping mecca New Bond Street. No pressure then! Time has been of the essence because the store needed gutting and a complete design applied throughout, every day counted.

It’s been a brilliant few weeks planning product spaces and helping hang the POS that we’ve designed. An excellent experience of working very directly with clients and suppliers alike, and a major buzz creating a full environment for a brand on a pretty truncated timescale. The team at ETC being particularly on hand for all the large scale printed items; like full wall lightboxes and working with the shop fitters to create the bespoke display areas we designed.

We’re pleased to stay the shop is now open, doing well and with our bespoke wallpaper fresh on the walls, here’s Natasha being our Daikokuya customer of the day. We are due to start the online delivery next.
