The Stables, in Wavendon, Milton Keynes is one of the top live music and entertainment venues in the UK. This year their Christmas show was NIE’s acclaimed stage adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic adventure story Around the World in 80 Days.
To assist in the promotion of the show via social media we created a set of unique imagery of lead character Phileas Fogg (a.k.a. actor Martin Bonger) as he travelled around the centre of Milton Keynes on his journey ahead of the show. The aim being to show his pioneering and inquisitive nature as he sought to navigate around the streets and landmarks in an artistic and intriguing way.
Using elements of locations and artwork that were uniquely Milton Keynes, but not always obvious, a small library of images was created and post-produced in a variety of styles, but with a nod to colours and tones of the period. Have a look through some of our favourites and if you know MK, see if you can work out where they are.
