Project Colour #2

So last week Project Colour kicked off at Ashburnham Primary School where over 150 kids painted their version of the World’s End Estate onto our digital billboard. As week 2 of the project starts and we begin to turn their paintings into one giant collage I’ve had some time to reflect on what was a truly exciting and uplifting day. 5 things stood out for me in particular.

1. First of all it was truly impressive to see how immediately these kids got to grips with the technology and immersed themselves into painting.

Project Colour

On the 16th July 2013 children from Ashburnham Community School on the World’s End Estate were able to draw straight onto a 15m2 digital billboard overlooking their school via our Project Colour App, installed on iPads set up in their playground. A collage of all their drawings is going to be exhibited on billboards across London over the coming weeks. Photographs of their work in situ will then be used to create posters for the school noticeboards and hallways with each child also receiving a poster of their individual artwork to take home.

Got To Love A Good Slide

If you’re anything like me (or any other planner I've ever met) you’ll get all hot under the collar over a good slide. Sometimes it’s because it’s a really useful or interesting piece of information. Sometimes it’s a masterclass in how to present something and other times it’s just because it’s pretty. Anyway I thought I’d share my favorite slides with you.

1. Lest we forget how much TV people are actually watching and are tempted to buy into the ‘TV advertising is dead it’s all about social’ hype…

2. This slide has probably affected the way I work more directly and immediately than anything else I've read.
