The Art of Ping Pong hits the Beach

Posted by Craig

A collaborative Art Project with our lovely friends at Beach London.

In 2013 we created The Art of Ping Pong, inviting ten of the UK’s most exciting artists and illustrators – including Christopher Wormell, Remi Rough and Hattie Stewart – to create bespoke ping pong bat artworks which went on to raise over £1,000 in aid of BBC Children in Need. In 2014 we did it again, this time featuring 21 artists and launching with a two-week exhibition at Beach London’s gallery.

We invited all the wonderful people that had contributed to the project so they could finally meet, share a drink, and see their work on the walls next to each other!

The fun didn’t stop there. Beach’s infamous Ping Pong table made a reappearance and people played while the whole exhibition was on.

The bats went on auction shortly after and we sold our limited edition publications so people could take the complete collection of the bats home along with a poster too.

The night was a roaring success with over 100 people packed into the gallery space and street outside.

Time for a change in direction

A little update from us at Fivefootsix. 

The fast pace of running Fivefootsix hasn’t given us much time to stop and properly think about the future. However, celebrating our tenth anniversary this year presented an opportunity to both reflect and to look forward. And, after a hugely exciting journey, we’ve taken the decision to bring our current agency operations to a close, allowing us to end things on a high, and turn our attentions to new challenges ahead.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Fivefootsix, we are also incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in that time, and the calibre of clients we’ve worked with. Brands like BBC Children in Need, Ben & Jerry’s, Birley, UEFA and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as well as our own projects, like The Art of Ping Pong, which will continue to develop.

Most importantly, the last ten years would not have been possible without the support of the hugely talented Fivefootsix team, both past and present.

Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on the journey and been part of that success. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to work with many of you again in the future.

If you can, please join us for some drinks at The Art of Ping Pong 2015 launch event, on November 5th at 7pm at the KK Outlet in Hoxton.
