Campaign photography for Invest in Cornwall

31 Jan 2018

We've been working with Invest in Cornwall for the past 18 months or so, shooting portraits, workspaces, infrastructure and landscapes around Cornwall. It's a task that has led us to all corners of the county, meeting some genuinely creative, interesting and talented people along the way. 

The most recent assignment for Invest in Cornwall has been a series of portraits for use in a new JC Decaux digital campaign that's been rolled out across some of London's busiest train stations. The aim of the campaign by Earth Branding is to drive awareness of Cornwall as a viable location for the next generation of tech businesses.


All portraits were shot in a short space of time at the beginning of January in various creative spaces belonging to Nixon Design, 3 White Hats, Radix Communications, Crowdfunder UK and Sanders Studio.


We were lucky with some lovely wintery natural light (there's been a lot of grey days!) on the days we were shooting. It made for some atmospheric shots, particularly outside Radix's Jubilee Warehouse offices in Penryn. 


Here are four portraits shot for this campaign and some snapshots of them in situ on the streets of London.

The Curiosity Door

03 Jan 2018

We absolutely love Stranger Things here in the studio, it's pitch perfect nostalgia for those who grew up in the 80s. The atmosphere, the music, the clothes and hairstyles are spot on, I'm right back in my parent's living room watching Flight of the Navigator on a rainy Saturday afternoon all over again. 


Aside from the nostalgia aspect, it's also bloody brilliant and this clip in particular from Season 1, of Dustin ringing his science teacher on a Saturday night struck a chord.


"You always say we should never stop being curious so always open every curiosity door we find..... why are you keeping this curiosity door locked?"


So... throughout 2018 and beyond, don't lock those curiosity doors, keep them open! 


Happy New Year from us here at Design Room.
