We Did It. The Takeover Is Live!

Friends, cat lovers, dreamers.

We did it! After six months of hard work and your amazing support, we've taken over Clapham Common Tube station with beautiful pictures of cats!

The station looks fantastic, and we couldn't have done any of this without you.

If you're in London, please come down and take a look - the takeover will be in place for two whole weeks.

For those who can't be here to see it in the flesh, don't worry: we're busy taking photos and videos as we type, and we promise to keep you updated as the weeks unfold.

Please share our story with your friends, colleagues and family, and help us make C.A.T.S famous. #CatsNotAds is our hashtag; spread it far and wide :) 

  • Here's a really great BBC video you can share on Facebook
  • Here's a more thoughtful article on a cool site called Atlas Obscura that we really liked
  • And here's a short thing that James wrote which explains the project for people who want to understand a bit more. Please share this, too. 

Thank you so, so much for making this possible! This has been a truly collective effort, from the small team who came up with the idea, to the amazing designers who made it happen and the fantastic group of backers who have given us so much support.

Keep sharing things, asking questions and spreading the word. We're going to send you more things as they come in, but we can't catch everything! Please post links and articles you like in the comments, so that everyone can share in the fun.

You guys are the best.

Love,

Team Glimpse

      SO GREAT YOU GUYS! The white backgrounds really make the ads pop, and doesn't let your brain gloss past it as just another standard Tube ad. Yay cats!

      Even a dog showing interest? This is clearly a success. Well done.
