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
