The Five & the Prophecy of Prana continued

Over the past month we have worked with Dance Touring Partnership to produce a programme for Boy Blue Entertainment's touring show The Five, and created banners, e-invites, a phone kiosk poster, more postcards, plus adverts for the Guardian Guide, The Indpendent and The Times and various other publications.

London Nautical School Prospectus 2014

The teachers at the London Nautical School wanted a new A4 landscape format for their prospectus which we happily facilitated. The request for the cover to be foil embossed with their logo required the logo to be redrawn, and we incorporated the teachers' suggestions into the layout of the inner pages.

Eleesha Drennan Dance : Channel Rose

New client Eleesha Drennan asked us to design a logo for her dance company. Eleesha chose to develop one of many designs submitted that she felt reflected her unique identity. We then designed the typography for her new show Channel Rose, for which she required an A5 leaflet and A3 poster for the upcoming tour.

London Mela 2014

This year we did an A5 flyer, but only the cover and map page for the brochure which was put together by another company who were also able to handle the distribution. We designed new backstage drops, backstage passes and provided a front cover and map page (with full running order) for the Asian Voice newspaper.

The Boy Who Climbed Out of His Face

FivetoNine were commissioned at the end of May by production company Managing Mayhem to produce the publicity design for Shunt Theatre Co's new show for The Jetty on Greenwich peninsula. Having seen Shunt's marvellous show Money in a Bermondsey warehouse some years ago, we felt very excited to get to work with them. But we did not actually meet them at all until after a lot of work had already been done on two briefs provided by Managing Mayhem who were liaising between the company and the promoter (developer Knights Dragon via intermediary Future Cities).

A third and final brief was provided in the middle of June, which was to portray the jetty in the context of a winding river reaching as far upstream as the Tower of London, based on illustration styles provided by Managing Mayhem. FiveToNine worked hard to fulfill that brief, arriving at the following design.

The theatre company had other ideas which we would have been happy to pursue, but we were asked to continue with this illustration to completion. When it was submitted at the end of June we were told Shunt had done their own design in the meantime and ours would not be used.

A little disappointed, having worked long hours and weekends and a total of 136 hours, we duly invoiced, offering a large discount to bring the payment down by 42% to our original quote for a single brief (although there had been three different briefs in all), in the hope of prompt payment.

Update 17th September: This invoice has still not been honoured some two and a half months later.
