Campaign for campaign : deconstruction

What goes up must come down, this took 6 hours to build, ten minutes to pack away. A success!!

The art of taking a space & creating a one day event fully explored. Super low budget super high impact. Always worth pushing the boundaries.

Thank you to all the team and massively to Hufton & Crow for agreeing to shoot, shop.


It's a Wrap!

More to follow on the final shot.

We are IN//

PS Please excuse our Blog appearance

This is a temporary glitch whilst we are getting a super dooper new website


A campaign for Campaign//

The studio has today been converted into a workshop for a Campaign self initiated exhibition piece, which will be the fundamental driver in the understanding of Campaign.

Confused, you bet but we already love what's being carved out.

It will all be unveiled on Hanbury street 30.03.2011 throughout the day for a one day create, document, shoot project.

More updates to come//

follow the day via @campaigndesign on twitter and a constant feed to this blog space

Living Roof on a Bus//

Marco Castro Cosio, a graduate of NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, designed this green roof for a bus as part of his thesis project named "Bus Roots." Coslo wanted to "
Reclaim forgotten space, increase quality of life and grow the amount of green spaces in the city," which would not only add aesthetic values to the city but also help reduce carbon dioxide.

As Coslo explains on his website:

-A public transit bus has a surface of 340 square feet. The MTA fleet has around 4,500 buses.

-If we grew a garden on the roof of every one of the 4,500 buses in the MTA bus fleet, we would have 35 acres of new rolling green space in the city, the equivalent to the space of four Bryant Parks.

The photos on this page of MTA buses outfitted with green roofs are digital renderings of what buses could look like, though Coslo has already installed a green roof on a bus for a real-life tryout:

His first prototype bus garden was grown on the roof of the Bio Bus, which is a science lab inside a re-purposed San Francsico transit bus that visits public schools in New York and in the Midweset to provide hands-on science education for schools that lack high-tech science labs for their students. As the site explains, "the BioBus is carbon neutral; its daily energy needs are provided by solar panels, a wind turbine, and an engine that runs on waste vegetable oil."

Campaign in Argentina [Sort of]

If they say Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then the owners of Carla Di Si in Palermo, Argentina are positively love-sick with us. We thank them for their 'interpretation' of our Kirk Originals shop design. They have fantastic taste.

With Topshop also 'inspired' by our Dunhill Momentary project, we may start running an annual competition for 'Most Accurate Representation of a Campaign Design.'

This Reminds me of something I can't quite put my finger on...

Yep, thats it.
