Our efforts to become an eco-friendly studio

With the term single-use named as the word of year, it got us thinking about how much plastic we use in the office and how we can reduce it to become eco-friendly.

Our first initial steps were to move the rubbish bin further away to encourage us to think about what we throw in the bin that could be recycled instead.

Secondly, we stopped using the takeaway cups from the coffee machine and water dispensers and started to use our owns mugs and glasses.


We started looking into recycling plastics and discovered Ecobrick, essentially plastic bottles filled with unrecyclable plastics until they are packed solid and are then used creatively to build walls, benches, structures and much more.


This idea is a brilliant way to get harmful plastics out of out eco-system and raise the awareness of how much plastic we are using that is non-recyclable. We have now started an Ecobrick in the office, and we are already aware of how much plastic we get through daily.


 

What’s next

Since creating our first Ecobrick, we are thinking about how we can go plastic free, both in the office and at home, for example buying loose fruit and veg rather than bagging them up, using loose tea leaves instead of plastic based teabags. Small and simple changes. 

We are hoping to encourage our Ecobricking with our fellow office residents in a bid to reduce the amount of plastics we are using. In the meantime, we are planning what we can do with our current Ecobrick and are looking for groups/schools who are looking for Ecobrick donations for their own projects.

Our next step for 2019 which is a big one for us, will be to make sure we source all of our electricity from renewable / green sources.

 

Welcome Rose by Paul Twyman

We are very lucky to welcome Rose to the team full-time after spending time with us for her internship.  Having already proven herself as a talented artist and problem solver we cannot wait to see what great work is to come.

Over to Rose;


Hello! My name is Rose Sheret and I’m the newest member of Agency Kilo. Now that I am all settled in I thought it was time to introduce myself through the blog. I joined AK in October 2017, as an intern, but I have since been offered a full-time position here.

The last few months have been an incredible step for me, as I develop myself from student to CGI artist, having graduated in 2017.

I was given my first mini project not long into my internship, creating Agency Kilo’s Christmas image. I thought up some ideas, presented them and was given the go ahead to continue the project.

The Christmas image was revealed daily, square by square in advent calendar style through our Instagram and Facebook pages.

I am looking forward to being able to share some of our more recent projects we have been working on with you over the coming months. Stay tuned!

Rose

Hanging Out by Paul Twyman

Architectural Visualisation doesn't always involve sitting in front of monitors creating imagery.  Jobs often require us to venture out to site for surveys and to hunker down and wait for that perfect moment.  We like this too!!

Inspiration for our work comes from nature and the world around us so making this connection is also an important part of the process which allows us to get a feel for a location and the look of the images.
