Bahrain National Theatre by AS.Architecture Studio
Project: Bahrain, “the kingdom of the two seas”, offers a flat island landscape. The National Theatre fits in this landscape, connecting the sky and the sea. It expresses a cultural belonging to the Arab world and its layout is that of an Arab palace, settled around an empty central space. The traditional palace patio is replaced by the main foyer. The main auditorium is located in the centre of this space, encased like a precious jewel. The play of water, shade and light is present throughout the building. The National Theatre is a landmark that embodies the artistic and cultural dynamism of the Kingdom both regionally and globally. It is designed to accommodate national and international events. It also serves as an urban and cultural centre, a place for creation and rehearsal, where artists breathe life daily.

Extended Major Project
Cultural identity is very important. Living abroad surrounded by different cultures can sometimes make identity blurred. This project was driven by a curiosity to know how people maintain their identity and culture when living abroad.
Fika is Swedish for coffee break and it’s a time to relax and catch up with family and friends. It plays a big role in Swedish culture and these products are designed to capture a little bit of Sweden so you can create your own Fika Moment at home.
This design concept is a collaborative project we did for the 2013 D&AD brief for the BBC. The brief was essentially to make the BBC website feel more alive. Our answer to this was the BBC Suitcase.
The BBC Suitcase is an innovative, user-centred platform that allows you to customise your own unique experience of the BBC. Think of the Suitcase as a vessel for all the sites’ content, your own personal case in which you can pack all your favourite programmes and categories. The Suitcase also automatically updates its contents so you can use it to follow stories and articles as they develop. Whether the content is new or old, with Suitcase you can engage with the BBC in a style that feels alive and relevant to you.

Some of my illustrated kids quotes finally ready to go up on the wall at Treehouse Family Play!
So it’s 3 days to go until www.treehousefamilyplay.com open their doors. I’m off there now to help with the boards and to hang my posters etc. Hoping to also see the banners outside and the menus I designed ready to go. Fingers crossed!
These are screenshots of the menus but hoping to get some ‘real’ shots of them soon too.
More work I’ve for finished for Treehouse Family Play. These are screen shots of the palacemats/activity sheets.
I have been doing lots of little jobs for Treehouse Family Play lately as they are about to open soon. It was really exciting to see the logo on the company car and some of ‘my’ illustrations on the shop window! The business cards arrived last week, the banner for the front of the shop is being put up this week and I’m working on the menu and placemat/activity sheet at the moment (deadline tomorrow!!)
Here’s a little peek at how the car vinyl turned out and the trial for the banner (the green was chosen).
