Wilderness

The Creative Arms recently took a field trip to the most amazing festival - Wilderness!

After designing the programme guide, we were very fortunate to be furnished with a few tickets.

Many, many highlights but Nils Frahm, Bjork, Lake diving, Moro feasts and the wonders of the Hidden Valley were top of the tree. Plus the Wilderness Orchestra and the annual spectacular were absolutely sublime.

Roll on next year's festivities!

Puttin' On The Ritz

We've been very fortunate to have just completed a video production for The Ritz Club in Piccadilly.

The club, which is part of the Ritz Hotel, were looking to create a promotional video showcasing the beautiful surroundings, exquisite decor and spirit of the Ritz. 

We re-created a classic night at The Ritz Club, with our lead man and lead girl making their way through the club, viewing all the wonder, beauty and delights the Ritz has to offer.

Showcasing the absolutely stunning bar, gorgeous restaurant and the luxurious gaming rooms at the club, we produced a little tale about chance.

The result is a tantalising peek into some of the splendour and beauty of The Ritz Club & The Ritz Hotel.

WORLD CUP WILL WE?

Here at TheCreativeArms we
were fed up of having a scrappy,
free tabloid pull-out on our walls during the World Cup and thought everyone else might be to.
So, we have created a beautiful version for your pleasure during the tournament.

Based on the iconic trophy and with this years Brazilian influence, we hope this piece will be a welcome addition to any home of office. The chart documents every match up to the final, and is hand silk screened in metallic gold on high grade, uncoated paper. 

The poster comes with a metallic gold pen to fill out the scores as the play unfolds.

Have a great World Cup.

Obrigado!

Ryan Mc Elhinney

We are proud to have had a very small helping hand with the artist Ryan Mc Elhinney's latest work. Ryan is a renowned interior designer and an artist and most noted for his recycling of objects into amazing sculptural art. His latest work draws inspiration from the destructive force of guns, gun crime, loss and remembrance. The new pieces are constructed entirely from thousands of spent shot gun cartridges and create a pronounced and poignant perspective on the idea of creation from the seeds of destruction.

How Low Can You Go?

Yesterday, TCA were up at the ACE cafe producing a photoshoot for the 'Go Ultra Low' campaign.

The collaborative ‘Go Ultra Low’ initiative is the first of its kind bringing together leading manufacturers with the Department of Transport, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). 

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced a £9.3 million investment in car charging infrastructure to support the launch of a new ultra-low emission vehicle campaign.

BMW, Nissan, Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall all supported the campaign. 

Tune in to pluggin' in.

New Baaa

The Creative Arms are proud to brand Chiswick's first micro brewery serving an incredible range of cask ales, bottled beers and great food. 

The identity uses the Lamb as a vessel, which can be filled with lots of different textures, images and ideas to give the brand flexibility, fun and strong character. 

We created two main marks and christened them 'Frothy' and 'Hoppy' and they feature throughout the pub from beer pumps to staff aprons.

The result is a cohesive and distinctive brand that can be kept fresh and current, just like their lovely beers. What EWE waiting for - see us down their for a pint...
