Here’s the brief for NYE at the Slaughtered Lamb…
Funkin Punkin are putting on a New Year Eve party at the Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell to see out the year. Famed for good time parties doused in hedonism, at great venues with twisted themes, this year will be no exception. We are looking for creative input to theme the party, venue, flyers and tickets. Therefore we are running a short pitch to anyone interested in submitting.
The venue is an ex-gallery in the back streets of Clerkenwell, in an old industrial building. The pub is distinguished by high ceilings and full height windows onto the street on two sides and a dark and dimly lit interior with a classic central bar. We need to screen these windows and are looking to use giant prints which will be visible from inside and out and provide visual interest and theme.
The theme is roughly speaking a CELEBRATION OF LONDON LIFE.
We are looking for graphic character based images that represent all things London in layered stories of any or some of the following:
Ye’olde London + Modern day London
New Times + Old Times
Good times + Dark times
Rhymes + Reasons
Alleys + Lanes
Cobles + Gold
Fables + Legends
Hedonism + Stoicism
Satirical twists
Rabbit down the hole
Puss in boots
History + Mystery
Things + Stuff…
The format will be black + white perhaps with one other colour, digital or screen print on lightweight paper to be pasted onto the windows and backlit. Average window bay is 4 panels of apx 0.8-1mX2m. There are 5 bays of 4 panels and 1 bay of 2. Images can take up a whole bay over the 4 panels or just panel by panel.
Flyer will be viral email.
Tickets will be screen print.
We will commission 4-5 works for a bottle of bubbly and a pair of free tickets for the night. All artists will be credited on all the media and we will look into further ways of promoting and selling the work with proceeds going to the artists.
Submission date is 14th November so get scribbling!
