All Hallows’ Eve at Design Bridge in Amsterdam & London

Darkness descended upon our Amsterdam Studio this year with the arrival of the Design Bridge Crypt…

Our mournful congregation, shrouded in black, gathered to hold a candlelit vigil and remember the many creative visions, ideas and projects that fell to the cutting room floor, destined never to share a place with us on this mortal coil.

Eliot was also on hand to shoot some truly terrifying portraits of our spine-chilling colleagues:

Over in the London Studio, Halloween just wouldn’t be Halloween for us without pumpkins (and a bit of unhealthy competition, of course), and we found ourselves with a pumpkin carving competition on our bloody hands.

With one pumpkin per bank of tables throughout the entire building, and a reminder to empty the innards into the food waste bins once the flesh had been salvaged for tasty treats, it was down to Graham to judge the creepy carvings…

Graham deemed the super spray-painted spider pumpkin as Highly Commended, which was created by our Workshop placement Louisa alongside the 3D team:

Coming in with third place this year was Jordan R and his simple, smiley face. Sometimes the classics are the best.

In second place was Andrew H and the Hellmann’s team for their on-brand creation…

But it was Jake and his team that scooped first place this year with their “Hotter Than Hell” hot sauce pumpkin – congrats!

Special thanks to Benjamin, Eliot ad Jakub in Amsterdam, and Hayley, Charlotte L and Sapphire in London.
