City of Culture 2017

Southampton City Art Gallery, Civic Centre.
May 31st, 2013

ALL CAPS were approached by Portsmouth and Southampton City Councils, asking if we could produce a mural for their joint 'City Of Culture 2017' bid.

The wall was to be the focal point at a launch event to publicise the submission of the councils joint bid. Attended by Radio 1 DJ and Man of Bestival; Rob Da Bank, the spokesperson for both cities, alongside council representatives and a huddle of reporters from newspaper, television and radio. Our artwork became the backdrop to many interviews and photo shoots.

Based on the councils existing launch material, we created a freer, looser, and more friendly, fun piece using our own doodle-esque hand drawn style.

Many thanks to Matt Scott-Joynt for taking some great shots.
