Produced as a 1 hour pilot for television, Purves & Pekkala is a quirky comedy about city living and conservation. A wry satire on property owning and developing populated by a surreal group of contemporary characters.

We studied images of people grouped by profession: architects, art students, vicars, conservationists, property developers, estate agents etc. Identifying certain common factors in how they dressed, particular tastes and symbols occurred repeatedly. These characteristics were highlighted and exaggerated to comic effect. Costumes for the protagonists, two architects called Duff & Mikko, reflect an obsessive-compulsive love of bold glasses, monochrome and minimalism.
