Happy New Year!
We're kicking our event season off this year with a Masterclass on 2 March on the most talked about and apparently 'entitled' generation, Millennials. We'll be looking into this with Jeremy King, CEO of Attest – an on demand, consumer insights platform. See below for full details on the event.
Additionally, we've curated a few perspective-altering / eye-opening pieces to kick start your imagination in 2017 – from the tales of the untold women scientists and engineers who worked for NASA in the 50s to an interactive, illustrated edition of the Jungle Book.
The more studies you read the more confusing it gets. We know, we've been there too...and come out the other side (with no little help from our (Young) Braves!). There appears to be a disconnect between the data and the real world.
Alongside Market Research company Attest, we're digging deeper into the monolithic Millennial. On 2 March, we'll be hosting a Masterclass to unpack and undermine assumptions about Millennials.
So it turns out we were 18 months ahead of the curve. None other than Time Out listed Mentmore Terrace as the place to be. Why? Well if you've come to the studio you've likely and luckily sampled the prime reason - e5 bakehouse's sourdough bread. Take a look here for Time Out's reasons we chose the right spot.

The Jungle Book: illustrated by MinaLima– MinaLima is a design duo, responsible for the graphic props on all the Harry Potter films. They introduce ideas and tell stories through design. Their work "encourages people to use their imaginations, make their own decisions and enjoy their own taste." This interactive, illustrated edition caught our eye.
Their gallery (House of Minalima) is on 26 Greek Street, showcases 15 years of creative collaboration and is well worth a visit!
"What I changed, I could;what I couldn’t, I endured" A perspective on inclusivity
If you have a chance, pick upHidden Figures. It recalls the lives of the unheralded women scientists and engineers that were powering space exploration at NASA's Langley Research Centre in Virginia in the 1950s. The human computers who were at once preserving their sanity and dignity while pushing culture forward.
For instance, Neil Armstrong's "giant leap for mankind" was made possible by womankind. Katherine Johnson calculated Apollo 11's launch windows and in 2015, aged 97 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Obama.
"A story of hope, that even among some of our country’s harshest realities — legalized segregation, racial discrimination — there is evidence of the triumph of meritocracy, that each of us should be allowed to rise as far as our talent and hard work can take us"
