Friday Favourites

Welcome to this week’s Friday Favourites, a selection of inspiring creative stories we’ve come across during the week. We’ll start with something shared by Lisa – “Brutalist Supergraphics”, a project in the British seaside town of Worthing, where street artist Ricky Also has been commissioned to transform a brutalist carpark facade into something far more colourful. Look closely and you might spot that the mural spells out “RIGHT NOW”, representing the creative regeneration happening in the town. It’s also an anagram of “Worthing”. Clever.

And while we’re on the subject of re-positioning British towns, what do you think about this set of posters promoting the “hidden gems” of Swindon?
