Bournemouth Air is a limited run of 30 signed and individually numbered prints originally commissioned to celebrate Think Research’s patronage of the award-winning Bournemouth Air Festival in 2015. It is a collaboration between Think Research and Irish artist and designer Rinky.
In 2014 Think Research won a prestigious Dorset Business Award, recognising the work Think have done in exporting their services to 25 countries across three continents, while at the same time taking huge pride in being a Bournemouth company. Bournemouth Air was therefore specifically chosen to have a very local theme, with the view being that of someone standing on the West Cliff overlooking Bournemouth Pier.
It has since been used to benefit several local charities in the Bournemouth and Dorset area. Prints were requested by, and donated to, organisations and charities including Bournemouth Borough Council, The Jon Egging Trust, The Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity, RAF Benevolent Fund, Wave 105 (local radio station) and Cash for Kids, as well as various charities involved with the Dorset Plane Pull.
The remaining prints are being gifted to those with an interest in aviation and a link to the Bournemouth area.
