We’re lucky at TAC that we get to collaborate with a lot of people whose work we love and with brands we’re passionate about. This second half of the year is shaping up exactly like this, not to mention being our busiest and most exciting to date.
So, as summer 2015 gets officially underway (not that you’d know it), we thought it was a good time to share what we’re up to over the next few months.
Something close to our hearts that we’re very proud to be involved in is an initiative with Tyne & Wear Museums and Newcastle University documenting the history of the Hatton Gallery and the Basic Design course.
Basic Design was a radical new approach to teaching in the 1950s and 60s and with Rob Airey, Keeper of Art at the Hatton, we’re aiming to present Newcastle as the ground-breaking art school of the period. We’ll be documenting how its teachers, exhibitions and students revolutionised art education in Britain.
Poems in the Air
We’re also excited to be working with Northumberland National Park and the poet Simon Armitage on the park’s first mobile app.
As the park is such a huge and incredibly diverse place, the idea behind the app is to encourage visitors to explore everything it has to offer – in an extremely unique way.
Other new clients and projects this summer include rebranding an up-and-coming architectural practice, collaborating with Sustrans and Roots & Wings on a new venture called The Journey and a new digital initiative with Your Homes Newcastle.
We’re also looking forward to welcoming the first students on our Summer 2015 Placements.
