Let’s face it – we’ve become a downward looking society. Between smart phones and wristwatches, most of us spend the majority of the day looking down. Or, at least away from our environment around us.
Think for a minute about all the things we miss around us, when we are buried in our technology. Things get unnoticed. Taking in everyday life around you can be a real inspiration. Walking through the centre of town on the way to and from work, I find looking up now and again, a great inspiration. One, you feel free for a short while and two, you notice a different visual world.
Some aspects of the architecture we have in our City, is so detailed, it is easy to pass it by. Also the way more consideration is taken when designing and constructing newer buildings that become entwined with the traditional architecture is intriguing.
Capturing a few images that I have found engaging adds to that journey and empowers me to arrive to work with a smile on my face.
As Birmingham is still very much in the news, we thought it apt to bring out of the archives, a project we were heavily involved with from the start. The branding and communication for Symphony Hall. We partnered at board level to fully understand the vision of this fabulous and leading concert hall.
It can be very easy to get so wrapped up in your day job/projects, that you forget about being pro-active for your own clients. At Levells, this rarely happens. We are always looking at client landscapes, what’s being said and where and how they can keep on top of their own story telling. So thanks to BakerHicks, Rosti and new ones to be announced soon.
