So move your feet to the summer song

Summer is well and truly here – although may in fact be already over if the weather forecast is right… but we’re looking forward to all the exciting projects we have ahead of us. These include a couple of really cool paint jobs with our mates from Blameless (website coming soon) in Perthshire and Leith, workshops in Dunoon and a new Start/Finish line in John O’Groats. It’s all good.

However, the job we are really excited about is in Banchory. Back at the beginning of May we replied to a call for artists to create a brand idea and implementation plan for Banchory town together with public realm works focussing on Scott Skinner Square. We were shortlisted and to our delight were selected as artists to do this! This is a BIG job with plenty of challenges but also with plenty of opportunities.

I made a visit there with Margo and the wee one to the River Festival on Friday and Saturday and it was good fun. Lots to do for kids (a beastie hunt in Burnett Park was a winner). Stalls, choirs, musicians, pipe bands – all very well organised. The ceilidh on Friday wasn’t bad either with The Big Fat Electric Ceilidh Band doing their thing. Great to see the guys again and they had everyone moving to some great music…

All in all a great weekend. The big surprise was walking in to the local Tesco and spotting ourselves on the front page of the local paper!  – FIN
