Living and working in this iconic seaside town it’s hard not to love the sea. It’s also impossible to not be inspired by its strength and beauty. It’s an inspiration that is shared across the globe – by surfers, free divers and other lovers of the deep blue, and it’s this common bond that the […]
Edinburgh in August is a funny place. You see so many shows in a row that they all start to blur into one another, the coffee-fuelled gaps between them become more and more crucial, and the lines between good culture and bad culture become crossed – was the last show I saw really that bad, or did […]
This has been a circus summer, all in all – Southwold has hosted Circus Hassani and Spring’s work on cultural tourism has allowed us to celebrate the range of circus, traditional to modern, that’s focused on Great Yarmouth. And as we visited and worked, we have realised some points of connection between Good Circus and […]
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Landmark Trust, Sir Antony Gormley created a series of sculptures entitled LAND. Five life-size statues have been placed around the country at Landmark Trust properties and hearing that one of them would be placed just down the road in Aldeburgh, a few of the Springers decided to go […]
It’s summertime! Another glorious, big blue skied, east coast summer is upon us; and we Springers are right in the thick of it in Southwold’s bustling town centre. The Southwold Arts Festival was a great celebration of the town’s community and brought world-class speakers and performers to Southwold for a week at the start of […]

Sweden’s well deserved victory in Eurovision was a vote for design. Mans Zelmerlow’s stage partners of stick men, lighter flames and butterfly wings were projected onto the stage (and Zelmerlow) throughout the performance. The black and white colour palette was shot through with red, and lighting was used to deliver emotional punch. The film had […]
For the past three years, Spring has been looking for a new headquarters suitable for our size and potential. Over that time, we have had four false starts – not bad, to have four times found a property that is big enough and has the right profile for our business – but for various reasons […]
Spring pays for all staff to attend two cultural events a year with a friend – we even throw in travel and lunch. I took the opportunity to visit Savage Beauty, the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A. The exhibition, brought to London for 2015 following a fantastically successful run at The Met in 2011, […]
Thanks to The Sunday Times, which this weekend devoted a double page spread to our home county’s many charms. They are, after all, why Spring set up here! Not only that, but The Times describes the spread of Suffolk cool as having come from our own home town, Southwold – and name checks a lot […]
Recently I took a trip to London to experience The Shard and to take advantage of our Cultural Expansion Grant. Having arrived early we had a few hours to play with and spotted a poster advertising a photography exhibition at the Science Museum’s Media Space Gallery called ‘Only in England’. The Exhibition showcased the work […]
Many of the Springers are keen cyclists (Si, for example, is just back from a quick solo trip over to northern France with no luggage bar the content of his panniers). Since we have a big client cycling event coming up soon, we decided to commission some Spring brand cycling jerseys. And here they are, […]
Anyone who watched Channel 4′s Scandimania is probably as in love as I am with the amazing 8 House in Denmark, designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group. This landmark building in the shape of the number 8 houses over 540 units for different configurations (single or family, young and elders, growing or shrinking families), mixed […]
On Saturday I took advantage of a great Spring perk (Cultural Expansion Grant) and visited the National Portrait Gallery to see David Bailey’s Stardust exhibition. Featuring over 250 images, personally selected and printed by Bailey, the exhibition includes a wide variety of photographs from a career that has spanned more than half a century. The […]
Love, love, love!! Majorelle Blue is the dazzling ultramarine blue that adorns the walls of Yves Saint Laurent’s Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech, originally developed by previous resident, the artist Jacques Majorelle. It moves and shifts with the light, and is quite unique. It’s beautiful.
Norman Foster has unveiled plans for a 220km network of car-free cycle routes to be built above London’s rail lines. What a great idea. From the air you see the rail lines – used and disused – running straight and level to the heart of the City and West End. It makes sense to use these […]
