Things We've Seen - Exhibits, Films, Work

Maaaate, have you seen this campaign? Seeking to address everyday sexism, Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, collaborated with Ogilvy UK on the 'Say maaate to a mate' campaign.
But despite the good intentions the campaign has caused division among the public, with some accusing it of being inadequate. To address the backlash, The Drum spoke to David Fanner, the consultant at Ogilvy’s Behavioral Science Practice division who led the research underpinning the work. Worth a read!
Lose Yourself in the Barbican - Exhibit
Who doesn’t love the Barbican? Designed by architectural icons Chamberlin, Powell and Bon the 40-acre Estate has amassed a rich history concealed within its brutalist exterior, and happily - this new digital platform allows visitors to see it all. Get lost in it.
“After waiting years for a follow-up to the emotional, tense and gorgeously gory rollercoaster of season one, the trailer finally dropped with some exciting cast announcements. Plus, we get a spin-off feature-length episode in the meantime.” - Jamie
Corr, What a Tune
With the band name and brooding drum intro, the song itself is a beautifully tender surprise - Ben Corr, Creative
