Hello World!

Welcome to the new (and somewhat improved) THERE blog. As you can see, we've made some changes. Read more.

News
Hello World!
Our new blog aims to be a place for news and views, as well as sharing what inspires us, industry innovations and trends, and sharing a bit of daily life in the THERE studio.  

A few years ago, too many, THERE started a blog to accompany our dear old flash website, and after a while, it inadvertanty became our main website — it was simple and quick to post new work, and the magic of Wordpress gave our content great SEO. Whilst it was never going to win any design awards, it was very functional and got the THERE's creativity out to the masses.

Fast forward to 2013, and big things are happening. We have an entirely new website, custom engineered from the ground up. We've worked long and hard to get the CMS just the way we like it, and thanks to our good friends (and studio buddies) at Macadamia for their efforts. The backend of our site is quite sophisticated, yet is so simple to use and operate — it's kind of like a big lego set — we can add and subtract new blocks of content, move them around and reconfigure. It's a bit addictive in fact.

Our new blog won't so much be a place to showcase work - we have an entire section helpfully titled Work, to do just that. The blog content is split into 3 distinct types of content, accessible from the filter links above;

News
This is fairly straightforward; it's news, updates and the latest. It might contain recent awards or publications, events or happenings or maybe new people joining the team. It's a place we can keep you up to date with what's going on.

Views
An exciting new initiative, we've decided to get on to this 'thought leadership' bandwagon. Now that's not to say we weren't always leading, or we haven't been thinking — but what is new, is writing them up as blog posts, and sharing them to the world. These might be articles about the latest and greatest in interiors, design and architecture, or thoughts on what's new or next for branding, or just musings and observations on life as a creative agency.

Insights
Lastly, insights allows us to share a little of the inner workings of THERE, how we go about building our clients' brands, our process and how we get things done. We'll be posting case studies of our work, both how it performs out there in the real world, as well as how it was developed. This is probably the section of the blog we're most excited about, as it will really give you a deeper understanding of how we go about things.

 

Finally, the new blog format will also allow you to get to know some of the characters and personalities of THERE - we'll be actively encouraging all the team to contribute articles and content. We're excited to be pushing our blogging to the next level, and we hope you'll enjoy reading as much as we enjoy posting.

THERE announces opening of Singapore studio
Following a huge year for THERE and with a recent haul of 8 AGDA awards, THERE's co-founder Simon Hancock, has moved to Singapore to drive the growth of THERE's offer and services in the Asia-Pacific region. 

After successfully completing a number of projects for established international organisations operating in the region, such as Macquarie Group, ANZ and Boston Consulting Group, more and more opportunities are now starting to present themselves in emerging markets and with emerging market brands.

“We've enjoyed great creative success at the recent AGDA awards, and together with our existing working relationships with many leading architects and interior designers operating in the area, we're confident the Singapore presence will see positive returns for our clients and the business in no time.” explains Simon.

Singapore was chosen as our Asian home due its ideal location and  proximity to so many active Asian hubs that are experiencing real growth, and with Simon in place, we are very excited about the potential to help Asian companies build global brands.

IndesignLive have covered the announcement, and can be read online here.

THERE feature in SEGD Publication

Our branded environment work for 3M is featured in EG Magazine, published by SEGD - the international association for  environmental graphic design.

We were chuffed to see our branded workplace for 3M be so prominently featured in Eg magazine – the international journal of the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD). The article looks at how forward thinking Australian businesses are creating workplaces for a new age and cites our work for 3M as a great example of how branding and wayfinding systems can provide human-centered, inspiring places to work while supporting environmental initiatives and the bottom line.
