At the beginning of the lockdown in the UK, Pentagram’s partner Naresh Ramchandani and team had a virtual creative huddle. Their goal? To find joy in the indoors, and share it with the world.
Twitter poet Henry Ponder sprang to mind for his witty micro-musings that celebrate the little things. So the team scoured Henry’s back catalogue and found 10 poems that fitted the indoor joy bill.
To bring the poems to life, the team enlisted director Steven Qua and family for nine of the films – and roped in the Oscar-winning Kevin Macdonald for Stairs (Naresh lives nearby and always did envy his staircase). With help from other creative friends – including Harry Pearce, Yuri Suzuki, JeanGa Becker and Iain Grant – Home Poems were completed.
The optimistic snippets have gained over 150,000 views so far and the team (totalling at 19 people in 16 homes) hope the project spreads smiles far and wide.
