The team at Fish Tank Creative are really loving Nick Barclay’s poster series ‘Three Colour Cities’, in which he uses minimal colours and geometric shapes to display his representation of these countries. Love his use of grids on these prints! What do you think?
After lots of hard work of putting together numerous amounts of print and digital material Fish Tank Creative experienced the BEAMS arts festival first hand, we were impressed!
There was an amazing display of illuminated artworks that lit up the streets of Chippendale. The atmosphere surrounding the festival was fantastic and we can’t wait until we can do it all again next year.
Recently at Fish Tank Creative we have had some fun working with infographics.
Therefore next week we are going to give you some advice on how infographics can be used to effectively display important information.

Ikea have taken Instagram to a whole new level. Using Instagram’s tagging features and grid structure the furniture retailer has created an account that functions just like a website.
The Instagram account @ikea_ps_2014 showcases 34 items of it’s latest collection. By clicking on any picture you are taken to another account devoted to that piece of furniture.
This unique marketing campaign was created by the ad agency Instinct and was developed to reflect the 2014 PS Collections main concept of ‘Always on the move’. We personally think they have nailed it!!
Could this brilliant idea change the original functionality of Instagram and inspire other marketers around the world?
