Thinking about our up and coming shop project a lot recently.. about what i want to do and who i might work with well. Its a daunting task.
the idea of pop up shops sounds really exciting to me, like those pop up gallery's that were sweeping london last year. Also thinking about merchandising and those aspects of our practice. the constant reminding that we must be commercial. Looking at yellow owl for there beautiful print products and particularly like these papers, envelopes and pens they've created as little sets, really nice.
Perhaps an idea would be to look at the royal mail and the loss of letter writing in the modern day and maybe get people to write out letters or draw pictures to send their friends during the exhibition with dressed up postmen walking around the room... maybe its not that original but it could make for a fun interactive environment. rambling.
