Last month marked a year since the beginning of Noir Agency, and we couldn’t let the occasion pass without inviting everyone who has supported us through our successes and challenges to come and celebrate with us.
In preparation for the event, we transformed the brilliant white infinity cove studio at Foundry Film Studios into an exhibition of a selection of some of our work from the past year. We decorated the walls with prints and vinyl displays, alongside a projection of our latest showreel. We also wanted to physically present some of our work, so we invited some of our partners to be part of the exhibition.
The Forge Poise team treated attendees to a preview of their up and coming collection of premium footwear, alongside prints of our most recent photo-shoot for the brand, visuals of how their original sketches of the product came to life, as well as an exclusive look at their brand new look-book. Our client and friend Ryan James also displayed his first collection of contemporary scarves and pocket squares, complete with the bespoke packaging and brand guidelines created by Noir earlier this year; his collection will launch in January. In addition to this, we took the opportunity to unveil our new branding for the iconic Toast Rack building. We displayed the new logo, alongside a selection of CGI images of how the building will look upon completion in 2018.
As the evening drew in and our guests began to arrive at the Studios, they were treated to a complimentary Noir Royale , Devassa lager or Alska cider kindly provided by Trilogy drinks. The team at ManBBQ also brought their ‘ManHut’ and limited edition cocktail bar into the studios; serving Peach Belinis, Elderflower Spritz and Espresso Martinis, which were accompanied by our stylised charcoal brioche beef sliders, range of inked sushi and monochrome macaroons.
Whilst catching up with one another and admiring the exhibition, guests enjoyed music from our talented DJ for the evening, Holly Lester. We were also lucky enough to have an exclusive acoustic performance from up and coming duo, The Richards Brothers, who appeared on the X Factor last weekend.
The entire evening was a great chance for us to not only celebrate and showcase our own work alongside some of our client’s work – but most importantly an opportunity for us to say thank you. For those in attendance and those who couldn’t make it, we want to extend our gratitude for being part of our journey so far.
Here’s to the future together!
