I was hired by advertising agency AMV BBDO to create a set build of a grotty 'gig' toilet and decorate it accordingly. I had to write certain quotes on the walls which represent a week in the life of an NME reporter. It was good fun to build, I had just under 2 weeks and this is the first time i've ever tried anything like this! This project was for the re-branding of NME and seemingly wanted to be a bit more experimental with their advertising, but alas they changed their minds! Unfortunate! All photos are pre-edit, AMV BBDO were going to take care of that side of things. Photography copyright Sammie Wilson/Nigel Bates. Drunken models are Michael Moore and Richard Bates.
