I am delighted to announce that we have selected Gilles & Cecilie, in association with Nina Ansten, to be our designers for the new school graphics and signage. I met with four designers last week, all of whom had strong portfolios and great ideas. It was a very difficult decision but I made the selection based on several criteria:
- Did the designer(s) understand our ambitions for the various spaces?
- Were they willing to collaborate closely with our Design Group?
- Did they have good communication skills?
- Were they enthusiastic and sympathetic to the spirit of creativity at Tallis?
- Did they have relevant experience?
- Were they able to cope with the scale of the commission and within the time constraints?
I will create a blog specifically for the project so that we can keep the whole community informed about the progress of the designs and gather useful feedback. Watch this space!
