The two words which caused sirens of horror to go off in my mind. Not because I am on the run from some hideous outfit offence, although I’m sure we all harbour a few dark fashion moments, but because this is the theme of our end of year exhibition. I shuddered when I first heard the words, my mind instantly leaping to tasteless, trashy and blah. However with some persuasion and discussion I was sold and even excited about the idea. Here is the opportunity to take a subject that doesn’t sound too flash and turn it into something fun, but to good taste, with a touch of class. The opportunities for design, display and promotion are great and with the right angle I feel it can be pulled off quite successfully. Although without wanting to dampen anyones dreams, I feel that the idea that it could go viral is a tad far fetched. Just a tad. Nonetheless, I would love to be on the media team, there are such possibilities in this media filled world and it excites me to know I can have the opportunity to test out these in a way that serves a purpose. I know this project will be a lot of hard work, but super exciting stuff is happening and I am ready to grab this project with two hand and dive right in!
Oh and on another note, excitingly we have received a number of positive responses from our Feastland project with Eastland wanting us to do another two displays and some other companies interested in involving us in some future projects! So super pumped all round!
