Creative Environments

Here at Skim we get a lot from the environment we live and work in. It’s fundamental to our well-being, inspires us and influences everything we do. It’s often that we conjure our ideas and thoughts in many different places… in the office, exploring the woods or crunching along the rugged coastline.

We wanted to bring a subtle change to our website and bring some of this into play. So we have begun the process of filming some of the special locations where we talk and harness some inspiration from the surroundings, under the title of “Creative Environments”. The first in this series was shot in a corner of the Bake woods, behind our offices during a magnificent autumn morning with low sunshine moving rays across the mossy ground. We spent half an hour aligning ourselves on our current workload and jotted down some key ideas to bring into those jobs when we got to the office.

We plan to add a series of these in coming months… so have a look at the first: Creative Environment #1

Need to get away from city life?

Churchwood Valley provides an oasis of lush green countryside and a coastal holiday location, it really is a breath of fresh air! Back to basics with wooden cabins situated in the South Devon coast just a short walk from Wembury beach. Updating this website has reminded me how glorious this conservation area is, so if you need to escape from the stress of city life, noise and technology – swap gadgets for a pair of binoculars, fishing net and a swimsuit.

We all need a little support at sometime…

Broomhill Manor playground

Gauntlet thrown down

busbunkbed_square_HDR12Our challenge: to try to coordinate a photoshoot at Broomhill Manor  (# luxury self-catering holiday properties) in Bude, aligning the weather with the properties being vacant. So we headed to the north coast of Cornwall and photographed Broomhill in full blossom glory – in-between the hail storms… Do you like their cute new bunk-beds?
