Best in show
The Propeller team’s skills have been on show recently at one of the UK’s top exhibitions for event organisers. Working with our good friend Jo Burke of JCBCreatives, we created a custom-built 3D stand at Venues + Events Live 2018 for one of our key clients, glh Hotels.
A world-leading hotel group, glh has a family of brands which includes Thistle, Amba and Guoman. Covering 16 square metres with three open sides, the stand featured eye-catching graphics to promote the Group’s Meetings and Events offering in London, which includes a wide range of conveniently located event spaces and high-quality overnight accommodation. Our brief was to handle everything from concepts and design to installation and removal.
Held in the stunning surroundings of Old Billingsgate, Venues + Events Live 2018 featured over 250 exhibitors and was attended by decision makers from across the business community, including company event organisers, PAs and booking agents.
We’re delighted to announce that Angela Prichard has been promoted to Design Director. As well as continuing to be one of our key creative team members, she will now take charge of workflow and studio profitability. She will also have a more strategic overview of our creative output, working closely with our Creative Director, Simon Milldown.
“Angela is a highly valued member of our creative team, ” said Simon. ” With a proactive, ‘can do’ approach and strongly developed managerial skills, she has always shown willingness to go above and beyond her remit to deliver outstanding service to our clients. We decided the time was right to recognise and reward that diligence and commitment.”
The spiritual home of London’s in-crowd, Soho is associated with all kinds of creative giants, from Dylan Thomas to David Bowie. Now we’ve immortalised this iconic district as part of an exciting new project for Soho-based Launch PR.
Working with leading illustrator Kerry Hyndman, we’ve designed a map for Launch PR’s Creative Crawl, a 45-minute tour of key locations in the Soho story. Fashion, sex, technology, art, politics and media are all on the itinerary, with links to many famous names, including anarchic clothes designer Vivienne Westwood and revolutionary philosopher Karl Marx.
Creative Crawl has been developed in association with the Blue Badge Guide and former City of London Corporation communications chief, Greg Williams. The tour is free for Launch PR clients or £450 for a group of four, including drinks.
Propeller duo welcome two new additions to the family
We’re delighted to announce the recent arrival of two bundles of joy for members of the Propeller team.
On 18 October, Becky and husband Bryan welcomed into the world Eleanor Anne Wybrow, weighing in at 8lbs, 6oz.
On 22 November, Sarah and Stephen Wardle became the proud parents of Thomas Joseph Wardle (5lb, 14oz).
Huge congrats to both families.
All the best to Becky
Best wishes to Becky, one of the Propeller stars, who is off on pregnancy leave. She’s been a member of the team for well over 11 years, so for the next few months we’re really going to miss her presence, as well as her smile and sense of fun.
Take care and enjoy this precious time, Becky. We can’t wait to meet the new member of the Wybrow family!
