The lights are on… and we’re all at home!

March 19 2020 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
Given the unprecedented and developing situation with respect to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to update you on the steps we have taken at Speirs + Major to protect the health and well-being of our team whilst maintaining business continuity.

In line with the latest UK Government advice our team in London are now working remotely. We have also suspended all business-related travel and advised that all meetings should be held online or via phone, until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor and update our processes and policies as new guidance emerges.

As a flexible business with projects in various locations worldwide we have had remote-working in place for some time. We are therefore well equipped to deal with the current change to working practices and would like to reassure you that we will continue to provide the highest standards of creative design and professionalism in support of our clients and their projects.

Please feel free to contact us should you require any further information.

Stay safe…

Speirs + Major Spring Social 2017

April 28 2017 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
The annual Speirs + Major Spring Social took place earlier this week, with both studios enjoying some social time together.

In London, the team took to the skies as they experienced 'Up at the O2' - a private climb over the roof of the O2 Arena in Greenwich. After a thorough safety briefing and garbed in trendy jumpsuits, the team ascended the walkway to the top of the O2 roof where far-reaching views over the Thames and London skyline awaited them.

In Edinburgh the pace was more sedate, with the team attending a life drawing class. Using collage, pencil and charcoal, the class focused on negative space and freeing oneself from the line on the page. The results were very impressive and were discussed afterwards over drinks and dinner at a bar nearby.

In Memorium

August 03 2016 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
Today we remember the one year anniversary of our close friend Andrew Howis’ premature death. There have been many occasions in the past year when we have missed his insight and support. Much has changed but the spirit of his influence on Speirs + Major remains. We think of him often and miss him regularly; it is still a shock.
