I also LOVE how companies, agencies, partnerships have been created between boroughs and it's all about the team work - the spirit, the bringing together and supporting one another!
Here's to Team GB!
Bread Collective - a London based Design agency have created a beautiful 100 metre typographic mural that lines one of the walls in Hackney on route to the Olympic Park. I saw this on It's Nice That - and I loved it - it is a great way to celebrate the historical Industry of the area with words and phrases put forward by the local community.
It shows a mass of love and emotion for an area that has been deprived, but with the support from the Olympics it shows just how much it has to offer. I also love the engaging aspects of the words - they have an empowering effect on area, the heritage and the gaps that fill the voids.
It took them seven months of preparation, long hours and hard work to produce the mural - but they deserve a big pat on the back as it looks incredible and I can't wait to see it!
Enjoy from the view on your screens ... The walls have ears!
