23/07/12_AnnaM_Stand help University of Glasgow to “say hello”

University of Glasgow “Say Hello” from ShoeBox on Vimeo.

We are delighted to unveil the video we developed and filmed for the University of Glasgow.  Produced with and Directed by the lovely Patrick Strutt, the 4 minute film gives international students considering coming to study at Glasgow a quick snapshot of what a day in the life of a University of Glasgow student is like: from the facilities, the teaching, the resources to of course, the unforgettable nightlife in the city.

We’re really pleased with how the film turned out and the word is that prospective students love it too.  Happy days. : )

Design Consultancy of the Year

Yes, it’s bad form from us:  we’ve not updated our blog for ages then suddenly we win Design Consultancy of the Year at the Scottish Design Awards and we’re very keen to let the world know.  Believe me, I’m only writing this because the lovely Maggie has forced me to!  This is how the conversation went:

Maggie:  ”Have we updated our blog after our performance at the Scottish Design Awards?”

Anna (voice of doom & gloom): “Er, no, but we haven’t updated our blog since February, so do you think it’d be right to go steaming in there with our ‘Listen guys, I know we’ve not really been part of the conversation for a while BUT let us tell you all about US ?”

Maggie: “Em, yes, I do.  Can you just put it up there?  Can you also mention the other awards we got that night.  Oh, and the Gold award for the Glasgow School of Art prospectus at the HEIST Awards too?”

So, in case you missed it, here’s what we’ve won recently.  Please read it, it will make Maggie’s day:

1. Design Consultancy of the Year 2012 at the Scottish Design Awards

2. Best Corporate Identity for our design of the identity for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

3. Best Publication for the Glasgow School of Art Undergraduate Prospectus

4. Gold Award for the Best Prospectus from a Specialist Institution at the HEIST Awards

More of Maggie’s propoganda to follow soon.  Promise!

…Anyway, how have you been?
