BACKSP!N

We were delighted to take part in BACKSP!N back in December.

BACKSP!N is an exhibition inspired by table tennis, designed by artists across Scotland.

The second in a series of exhibitions, BACKSP!N is a silent art auction, with all proceeds going directly to the Drumchapel Table Tennis Club (DTTC) , a registered charity in Scotland.

Organised by our neighbour/fellow creative agency Pim Pam BACKSP!N showcased over 60 table tennis paddles designed by artists, designers and illustrators from across the UK — as well as one dedicated table design for the show.

 

The Brief

We were issued with a brief to create a paddle based off of the following works:

  • Character
  • Movement
  • Community

Our Approach

We chose the word ‘Movement’ and utilising lenticular print we looked to tap into nostalgia with this fun and simple type-driven design.

 

This was a fantastic project to be a part of and was particular memorable as this was our first design event since lockdown began nearly 2 years ago, great to catch up with some familiar faces and meet some new ones too!

Big shout out to Luke at Pim Pam for the invite and making it the success it was, click here to view all the other bats and see some of the amazing work on display!
