Image of Design. Case Study Butlins

IMAGENAMEHEREOne of a series of 45 line drawn sketch designs that were combined with text, maps, site plans, photographs and client corporate imagery to produce a set of six bound presentation books.

The late 90’s marked a turning point for many longstanding and more traditional British holiday venue operators. Butlins needed to upgrade their facilities in the face of growing competition. For one exciting opportunity, Link Design Build contacted us to produce face-lift designs for Butlins in Ayr.

Butlins were keen to hold on to their long standing identity, something that their existing customers recognised. Consequently, our design work preserved the fabric of their existing buildings and the ‘new-look’ was expressed through bold wall graphics, character signage, carpet design, ceiling mobiles and lighting.

Soul Creativity

Soul CreativityHolistic Practitioner, Hilary Foxwell, pops into the HoBB to give some sound advice to me about tapping my teeth to the rhythm of music – STOP IT !

When there’s music in me my holistic body becomes an orchestra of movement and it was not until my dentist remarked that I was showing some curious signs of ‘wear’ on parts of my teeth not normally associated with wear areas or eating, that I started to study my dental days more closely.

I caught myself recently allowing music to pervade my spirit to the MAX and yes, I was, without realising it, clicking everything including my teeth to the beat of the base!

Hilary to the rescue! When you get into a ‘loop’ action it can happen so automatically that you know nothing consciously about it and therefore need some help to by-pass the bit of the mind that continues the loop – especially if the habit it as loopy as using your teeth as rhythm sticks!

Hilary is versed in the Alexander Technique and teaches the Golden Wings System of Chi Gong and Tai Chi, working especially with Musicians, Actors, Artists, Dancers and now ‘teeth tapping creatives’. She visits New Zealand shortly to research the set up of a NZ ‘Soul Creativity Centre’ and hopefully, bring back loads of information on their complementary approaches to total well-being.

… it’s freedom of movement in creative expression on all levels but NOT for my teeth from hereon!
