Bringing a terrifying classic back to the stage
Ghost Stories campaign
We designed our studio; it's filled with light and music. There are multiple meeting rooms, a well stocked kitchen, and an indoor garden (with fishpond). Pop-in for tea and stay to use a spare desk for as long as you need.
We’re next to Greenwich train and DLR station. We have a door right on the concourse but it’s different to our postal address.
If you have to come by car, we have a couple of parking spaces in front of our studio. Call ahead to make sure they’re free, and use our postcode (SE10 9QF) to guide you in.
It's exciting to chat about potential new projects. We don't have a ‘sales’ team or a form to fill in. Call us or give us a little detail via email and we'll get straight back to email@example.com
If you're a client then you'll be best served by calling us or contacting us via Basecamp, otherwise you can use this dedicated email that reaches all of the digital firstname.lastname@example.org
This email hits the inboxes of the people who deal with our bookkeeping and email@example.com
Sometimes enquiries don't fall neatly under a heading, do firstname.lastname@example.org
Ghost Stories campaign
Ten year’s after the terrifying original, Ghost Stories was returning to its original home. We’d loved Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman’s play the first time around so it was a thrill to be able to work on this revival.
In an early briefing meeting with Andy Nyman and Lyric’s Director of Communication, Amy Belson, we chatted about the need be true to the original production.
The first time around, the show had been a phenomenon, running for two year-long residencies in the West End before touring world-wide.
There was bound to be a draw for those who wanted to revisit this old favourite but, a decade later, there would be a new generation drawn to the stage-show on the back of a recent film version.
We had a lot of fun playing with horror film tropes and warning notices. We drew our own type to give all elements a hand-drawn, low-fi feel.
And we included a hidden horror that reveals itself the more you look.
Stare through the type and you’ll see the figure of a small child looking back at you.
Actually, the child is the son of our Director, Michael. It’s a photo taken two decades ago (long before even the original show was on the stage).
For those brave enough to book, we added some extra fun to the website. We wouldn’t let anyone get to the booking button until they had read and agreed to the disclaimer…
It was great to be invited back the first night, to see this amazing show back in Hammersmith, where we’d first seen it a decade before.
