Picture of the poster for beamingThe Idea : create a series of slogans around the word 'beam'  - so it drew upon the humour of young people and those who liked puns.

How It Worked :  people spent time coming up with appropriate phrases -  the final list included the following:-

Light Beam : Coffee Beam : Wood've Beam : Shouldn't have beam : Beamerang :   Beamz Meanz Heinz : Beam With Delight : BE AMong The First : Has Beams :  Full Of Beams : Butter Beam : Full Beam Ahead : We've beam along here : Beam and Gone : Beamless.

These  were transfered onto card - some times with appropriate visuals - and then hung upon the beams across the building site.
