Things we've done

We've done loads of creative stuff for loads of brilliant clients - heres a few bits and bobs.

York Gospels re-display

York Gospels re-display

We were challenged to create a new setting for the amazing and beautiful, 1000 year-old York Gospels at York Minster. We were limited by conservation requirements so we created a layered, gold metallic trompe l'oeil graphic treatment to enhance the area and create a dramatic sense of depth and movement.

Ammonite Quest

Ammonite Quest

The Ammonite Quest features a bespoke device designed to help bring Whitby Abbey alive through an interactive exploration of the site and its archaeology with minimum physical intervention. Commissioned by English Heritage as part of its redevelopment of the museum at Whitby, it has proven to be a hit. Eclectrick created the concept, design, electronics, software & delivery.

York Minster

We were challenged to create a muktifunctional, temporary space for York Minster's summer educational programme. The space had to incorporate performances, crafting, demonstrations and workshops, and all on a very tight budget.
