Oh Wow! – Making Up History, Ethereal Paintings and a 1600 sq ft Chalk Mural.

Today we’re getting lost in an archive of important (and sometimes made up) moments in history, gaping at a 1600 square foot chalk mural that took 3 days to complete and looking at some gorgeous, whimsical paintings.

 

ONEMaking Up History, an ongoing project by Made Agency.

 

“Every day, in an effort to contribute to the general interestingness of the internet, or perhaps just to flex our story telling powers, we pick an important moment in history and adapt our Facebook profile picture to illustrate the occasion. Of course it wouldn’t be fair if all the fun was had by our designers, so our copy team are tasked with distilling an often overwhelming amount of information down to a titbit or two. They try not make stuff up but occasionally minds are lost and things get silly, don’t hold it against us.”
