We are Laura Set Sale

design & creative direction / digital / events

For one week in October, We Are Laura staged a maritime takeover inside a Boxpark shipping container. Throughout the week, everyone was invited to join us in crafting a vast paper based seaside-inside installation. There was talks and workshops from other creative contributors, all with a marine theme, building up to the grand finale where together we assembled the sea-scape in less than 24 hours, before it disappeared, like messages written in sand.
