Our Interactive Art Installations for The Cuisine Good Food Awards was a project we found challenging yet extremely rewarding. It pulled on our knowledge of various areas of expertise and combined them into a show-stopping event entertainment. We combined Fashion Design, Food, Building, Florist, Body Art, Makeup Artistry into a complete package.

From Concept through to Completion, Our team had the pleasure of working with The Human Agency on this brief. We supplied creative input as well as design concepts to the Fairfax Events team. These exhibits were to be sponsored by Kenwood so we also had to come up with creative ways to incorporate the branding into our design.
