Following its work for the Military Pride display at Imperial War Museum North, Ingenious Creative has been appointed to work on the design of a new display for The Quays-based museum entitled, ‘Stranger in the House.’
Based on a major new book by author Julie Summers, “Stranger in the House” brings together personal stories from new research and existing unpublished testimony revealing the moving experiences of women and families readjusting to life after husbands, fathers and sons returned from the Second World War.
“Stranger In The House” runs from 25 October 2008 to 1 March 2009 and replaces “Military Pride” in The WaterWay exhibition space, also designed by Ingenious Creative, which revealed experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender personnel in the armed forces. Also still running at Imperial War Museum North until January 2009 is “Horrible Histories: Frightful First World War – The Exhibition”, the first major exhibition Ingenious Creative designed at the Museum which has attracted thousands of visitors to date. It is a partnership exhibition between Imperial War Museum North, Terry Deary and Scholastic Children’s Books and is sponsored by Vimto.
Ingenious has also produced new work for day nursery chain Kids Allowed, which is taking part in the Halliwells Corporate Challenge, an initiative designed to raise money for the Prince’s Trust. The scheme encourages each Kids Allowed family to host a meal for other parents, and raise money by charging an admission fee.
In addition, Ingenious has been approached by Salford charity BASIC (Brain And Spinal Injury Centre) to work on the design and marketing of its annual ‘Chequered Ball’, a motorsport themed fundraising event. Lastly, Ingenious has been working with clothing manufacturer Cosalt to deliver a new range of branded workwear into Renault’s UK dealerships, and has also devised new advertising for The Printworks.
