Manchester’s Street Summer Entry Goes Up

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Manchester’s winning entry for Channel 4’s Street Summer season went up at the start of the month. Designed by local writer Theodore and mentored by Sheffield’s own Faunagraphic, the piece draws inspiration from an unlikely source. In this film, Theodore explains that his design is based on a painting by the Czech Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha no less. Watch the film for an explaination and look out for Fauna’s expression – it’s priceless. Wet Paint would like to thank Faunagraphic and all of the artists we worked with during this project. And to view all of the regional winners and their films skip to the Don’t Panic website HERE.

Wet Paint at The Gadget Show Live

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Wet Paint Productions were busy promoting gadget insurance company Protect Your Bubble to a sold out Gadget Show Live, this weekend. Spread throughout 5 halls of the NEC Birmingham, the Channel 5 show’s live event is billed as the UK’s ultimate consumer electronics event and they are not wrong! So, when the client wanted to increase traffic to their stand, they asked Wet Paint to come up with an innovative way to capture visitors’ attention and imaginations. As part of Assurant Solutions which operates in the US, South Africa, Canada, China, Europe and the UK, the online firm that offers insurance for laptops to smart phones jumped at our concept of spraying screen savers on to these giant iPhones. As the only exhibitor offering experiential marketing outside of the event, Sheffield’s very own Faunagraphic and Rocket01 drew the crowds as their corporate-driven designs featuring the characters Bubble and Squeak went up. One of these designs could well be winging its way to corporate headquarters in Atlanta, USA,  before long and we’ll post a picture of the art in situ. Again, our thanks to the artists for their designs and hard work. Any companies looking to boost their presence at exhibitions can contact Wet Paint Productions at:
