Bar Termini: “Apertivo”

Posted by | Blog, Pics | No Comments

Here is the first part of a video I made just before Christmas for Bar Termini. In their words:

“Bar Termini is a coffee and cocktail bar that takes inspiration from the idea of a bar in an Italian train station in the 1950s, with its name taken from Rome’s famous train station ‘Roma Termini’. The bar is situated in the heart of Soho on Old Compton Street.Around the time of World War II, London saw an influx of Italian immigrants, many of which opened their own businesses. Soho became home to many new Italian restaurants, bars and delicatessens, some of which still exist today.Since opening Bar Termini, many new faces that have bought us interesting stories from their time in Soho. We began to look into the history of our neighbourhood, particularly between 1930s -1970s – We were surprised to find a whole host of characters with stories to tell.
In this short series, we meet Elena Salvoni, John Billiet and Teresa Arrigo, who kindly share their memories of the time they spent in Soho.”

I set up my own studio to have a (hopefully) happy and creative balance of paid hours, and time for personal projects and R+D. However on a day to day level, balance isn’t necessarily the same as control. In practice, the luxury of ignoring all contact and going off the grid for days devoted to private work is incompatible with the need to be on standby for clients, who may be on a retainer and agents, whose first ask may always be their most reliable contacts. Those hours come in the form of half days, early mornings and evenings, or even an hour waiting for feedback or for a client in a different timezone to come online. It is really important to make sure those hours count towards those self-motivated projects.
