Innocent does Good for Nothing
Last week Good for Nothing welcomed the Innocent creative crew to sunny Brixton for a day of quick-fire voluntary doing and making. The challenge was suitably chunky: eight hours to come up with a new name and identity for the Brixton re-use centre. This very cool remakers' co-operative is part of Transition Town Brixton. The co-operative, guided by Hannah Lewis, is based in a set of garages that are being refurbished with some fantastic designs from Architecture for Humanity.
Hannah's brief focused on creating a fresh identity that captured the crafty, positive spirit of the place and that could work on the web and across different locations beyond Brixton when the idea takes off.
With the tunes and the coffee flowing Zoe, Dan, Stu, Kirsty, Claire, Clare, Ben, Delia, Lewis and Tim got stuck in. 'Remakery Brixton' was quickly singled out as the new name and the drawing began. As you would expect the team worked brilliantly together and now 'Remakery Brixton' has an ace look and feel, some funky signage and a wireframe for a new site. Noice one all as Dan B would say!
