A new project for the BBC’s 2016 Shakespeare Festival

8th February, 2016

We have some very exciting news!

This year, as part of the 2016 Shakespeare Festival that marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we’ll be launching a brand new digital project with the BBC.

Our appointment came about through an open call from BBC Learning that saw around 60 creative responses submitted. We were delighted when we were shortlisted to pitch our idea and even more delighted when our concept was selected as the successful project.

Our idea focused on using emojis as a playful device to connect people with Shakespeare’s language and encourage them to share it. With the launch rapidly approaching, we’re excited to see that the project has already been making headlines following the launch of the full BBC Shakespeare Festival last month.

That’s all we can share right now, you’ll have to check back in on opening night!
