NYC PR Firm WORKHOUSE to Promote Peter Arnell's "Devon"
Award-winning NYC PR Agency WORKHOUSE, one of the country's leading creative agencies selected by teNeues Publishing for branding, strategic counsel, media relations and public relations services.
By: Devon Mack
Devon: Desire, Design and Dreams chronicles of one man’s vision of how creation can help us to re-see the world. This unique collection of photographs by legendary photographer, director and designer Peter Arnell captures the spirit of visionary designer Scott Devon’s namesake enterprise. These exquisite and fantastical photographs are part of a peerless collaboration between Devon, inventor, creative director and designer, and Arnell, worldrenowned brand guru, which articulates an exotic style that instigates and inspires.
The images comprise a delirious collage of fragmented fantasies, a dreamlike anthology of masked alien beauties, technicolor geishas and erotic industrial wastelands. The outcome of this synergistic effort is an artistic treatise that simultaneously evidences Devon’s philosophy on lifestyle and Arnell’s creative genius.
For many years, Workhouse Publicity served as the Agency of Record for Assouline Editions, exclusively handling all domestic and Canadian media. The agency was charged with the creation of a strategic campaign that included brand positioning and development, as well as overseeing a full catalogue of more than 90 seasonal titles through a host of services including public relations, sponsorship, promotion and special events. Following this charge, Workhouse was selected as the Agency of Record by Rizzoli International Publications and its imprints’ Flammarion & Universe Publications as its first domestic Agency of Record.
For more than 50 years now the teNeues brand has been synonymous with the publication of finely produced illustrated calendars. From this original core business has grown an internationally established publishing group that annually markets approximately 500 illustrated calendars on a wide variety of themes. When it comes to quality and innovation, teNeues is an industry leader. For books this means teNeues works with top authors to bring readers the finest visual communication in the areas of architecture, travel, beauty, design, popular culture, fashion, lifestyle and living. So, it's no surprise that these exclusive illustrated volumes are recognized worldwide. Thanks to exacting standards in layout, typography, and visuals as well as tasteful handling of subject matter, the books grace the most distinguished residences and decorate coffee tables on all continents. "We stand for clear visuals, design, innovation and the cutting edge,” states publisher Hendrik teNeues. In the calendar and stationery business, teNeues has a leading global position and is sought after by major international content licensors and commercial partners. Countless leading international photographers seek out teNeues to showcase their work in high-quality formats. Bruce Weber, Tim Walker, Russell James, Rankin, Elliott Erwitt, Martin Schoeller, Robert Mapplethorpe, Michael Poliza and Matthew Rolston trust the brand and its established tradition of quality. In addition, teNeues has been recognized countless times by its peers for its exemplary high-end titles. For example, in 2007 and 2008, the book division was awarded the Villégiature Prize (for Best European Hotel Guide). In the same years, Michael Poliza and Tim Walker were awarded the German Photo Book Prize for their works. Staying on the pulse of the modern multimedia age, teNeues is reaching out to its customers in all kinds of innovative ways: the company now offers the public the chance to interact with the business via Facebook or Twitter, watch Making-Of videos for various titles, get intriguing behind-the-scenes glimpses of the book-making process, or experience teNeues titles on new platforms.
