The Minister of Twirly Lightbulbs and Furry Rugs here. We are just opening the doors to our Ministry to Junior Ministers and visitors alike. But as you walk through the front doors, after your initial admiration of the glossy varnish and the orderly shelves, you’re probably wondering who has helped put this together.
As the ministers are very busy doing ministry type things, three volunteer architects, a graphic designer and an illustrator came before the Chief Minister. Their challenge? To get the ministry in tip top shape before the Junior Ministers arrived for story duty. This impressive team includes Catherine Grieg of make:good, Alistair Hall of We Made This, Illustrator Heather Sloane, David Ogunmuyiwa of Architecture Doing Place and Andrew Lock of Lock Rennie LLP.
Helping these brilliant minds, other than myself of course, were some lovely volunteers who puttied and painted, stained and built to make their plans come to life. They include:
Ted Harrington, Justin Marchant, Darragh McKeon, Paul Rigo, Patrick Tomany, Nathan Matias, Lauren Manister, Martin Jackson, Sarah Espiner, Melanie Abrahams, Steve Haisman, Katie Grant, Kerry Jo Reilly, Clare Macnab, Chris Lochery, Dee O’Connell, Mikey Bennett, Joe Dunthorne, Kirsty Badenoch, Declan Pollock, Kissley Leonor, Alan Mayers, Jesse McGrane, Carys Kennedy, David Williams, Anne Doyle, Jasper McKenzie and Sarah Morrison.
We are thoroughly pleased with their work and are happy to have them as part of the Ministry’s Department of Twirly Lightbulbs and Furry Rugs.
As I am quite busy these days, our architects and designers will be available for any further comment or photo opportunities. Please do contact Minister 3.0 for more information. We know they will do us proud.
May you go forth in imagination,
The Minister of Twirly Lightbulbs and Furry Rugs
