Wordsworth and the Guernsey Donkey Parade

April 14th, 2011 · Paul · No Comments

After much thought and deliberation we have decided to name our donkey Wordsworth. Wordsworth will feature the well known (for graphic designers) Lorum Ipsum place-holder text which will wrap around the donkey to accentuate its shape.

Due to the nature of our business and the charity involved in the Donkey Parade, GALP, we felt that this was a strong solution.

It’s looking good in two dimensions. Now the real challenge is how we make this work on a 4ft high three dimensional donkey! Channel Television came in to our office yesterday to see how we are approaching this rather unusual challenge.

The finished donkey will be on display in our office window in the Bordage as part of the Donkey Parade from July until the middle of September. It will then be auctioned to raise money for GALP.
