Go Forth! Mercurylab in London (Part One)

July 25 2014

Hello all

This summer Mercurylab is working (and playing) in London. Since opening our new studio in Battersea last year, we've slowly but surely been building up our brand in the mother country (as they say). For the next couple of months, we'll be keeping this blog up-to-date on our findings and observations, what we're up to, and what we're thinking, seeing and enjoying. Oh, and what we’re working on!


In the time we've been here thus far, we've spotted some pretty neat things. At 221b Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes, Dr, Watson, and studio manager Kyrie on the case (left); a magic alleyway, off Kensington Church Street – this is how they live in tony Holland Park (middle); and a 
mysterious painting through a window in the village of Victoria Park (right). I’m so curious to know the who and why of the woman in that painting – it’s so naïve, and very beautiful, situated in its formal red room.


Cool "now" brand Nuji may need to rethink their billboard locations.

While walking down the streets we saw this advert for Nuji, super chic and trendy British-bred website. Nuji allows users to go internet window shopping, and then add all their findings to one massive and organised wish list. Seeing this vibrant billboard surrounded by industrial waste creates a major brand disconnect. "Trending fashion" and "lifestyle products" is a hard sell when the face of your product is popping out of a garbage bin!

Make sure to stop by every week and catch up with our British escapades. There are countless opportunities for beauty, life, trends, and brand analysis. You just have to know where and what to look for!
