£2 million raised by Gromit Unleashed 2 for Bristol Children’s Hospital
The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital charity, has announced that its third award-winning trail, Gromit Unleashed 2, has raised £2 million for the hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St Michael’s Hospital, Bristol. This represents an amazing 309% increase in trail donations since their last trail (Shaun in the City).
By 21 January 2019 we will have moved to our centre of operations to a new site near the centre of Bristol in Lawrence Hill. It’s with a mixture of excitement and sadness that we’re packing up The Old Sorting Office into the relocation vans, new tenants, will be moving in shortly.
This month we look at how interactive props make such a difference when you’re running an educational workshop.
Every business, charity or organisation has a story to tell, which they may share in visitor centres or through their open events and professional workshops. The greatest challenge is similar for all: making the story resonate with the audience. For children especially, they love drama. We create our memories by forming stories, so the ones we can best recall are the ones that were dramatic.
With Gromit Unleashed 2 launching all over Bristol, we can finally start to tell the story of our involvement in a bit more detail. There has been a lot of fun and hard work building the sculptures for this summer’s art trail for The Grand Appeal. We were thrilled to announce our involvement last year and since then, the team has stretched their combined creative muscles to prepare the sculptures in time. It’s been a pleasure working with the artists and the organisers, and now it’s nearly time to reveal our own design – InCognito.
Next-generation interactive technology for Ultrahaptics exhibition display
When a new product is ready for the big reveal, a large scale in-store display often works to grab attention and get people talking, which we talked about for premium brands. To create a high impact display, it’s often the technical detail which matters most – looking at how the display is made, and what structural support or suspension points it needs – to be congruent with the design.
