A Little Piece of Mind

Leading creatives were asked to supply ‘a little piece of mind’ in the form of a 6 inch square of fabric. From a diverse array of such contributions by iconoclasts and innovators, Floersch has composed a Quilt that reinforces the fact that all it takes to make a big difference is a little personal time.

The quilt is being shown in London, then in New York and Glasgow.

The exhibitions will culminate in the quilt being auctioned. The proceeds will be donated equally between Shelter in London and Glasgow and The Bowery Mission in New York City, both of whom are committed to confronting and preventing homelessness.

North Glasgow College Signage

North Glasgow College is a college located at Springburn in Glasgow and one of the main providers of further education in Scotland. It was founded in 1965 as Springburn College of Engineering with a large number of engineering apprentices, which then merged with Barmulloch College in 1990. The merged college was named North Glasgow College.

Marque recently created a complete signage and way finding solution for RMJM’s 2009 RIBA Award Winning Building, North Glasgow College. Full story here.

Kirkintilloch Brass Band

A friend and I were invited to photograph the Kirkintilloch Brass Band at the Henry Wood Hall in Glasgow’s West End. The band were practicing hard for the upcoming Scottish National Brass Band Championship. The images were shot on the Friday before the competition which was to be held on the Sunday after.

The rehearsal venue itself is the Henry Wood Hall the home of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and it made a nice change to see an old church with a new purpose rather than exploring abandoned ones which generations have forgotten.
