PlayDNA gets thumbs up from Debenhams crowd!

Debenhams wedding fairAfter an overwhelmingly positive response to our first wedding fair at the 5* Randolph Hotel, Oxford, in January we were delighted to be invited to exhibit our new range of Framed Prints at the Debenhams Oxford department store last weekend.

Following hot on the heels of Valentines Day, the traditional British retailer held a Wedding Fair on Saturday 16th February 2013 to celebrate love, commitment – and how to have a fabulous wedding!

Dr Sam explains the interpretable nature of a PlayDNA portrait – and why they make such great wedding gifts!

As well as the many excited brides and grooms, a busy Saturday crowd kept PlayDNA Founders Dr Samantha Decombel and Dr Stuart Grice chatting about their novel artwork all afternoon. More than one person were stopped in their tracks by the colourful display pieces and paused to admire the ‘extremely cool’ and ‘fascinating’ artworks as they browsed the aisles.

As a wedding gift never to be forgotten you certainly couldn’t do better than a PlayDNA portrait – a fun way to see how compatible the bride and groom might be!

Do opposites attract? Or are you the perfect match? Beautiful genetic portraits for couples and families that come complete with your own DNA analysis and guide.

PlayDNA gets a WOW for its DNA Art!

We are greatly honoured to have been chosen by the extremely glamourous and high-flying businesswoman Jacqueline Gold as one of her favourite three businesses of the week on Twitter!

Jacqueline is the Chief Executive of Ann Summers and Knickerbox and runs her Twitter #WOW competition weekly, hand-selecting the most exciting female-led businesses around. Renowned for being one of the most powerful woman in retail, we are thrilled she has recognised the potential in PlayDNA!

Jacqueline loved our concept of mixing art and science to create unique prints based on your own DNA that can be meaningfully interpreted to tell you what secrets lie in your genes. Plus, unlike some other DNA art companies our DNA Portraits are not computer-generated, they are actually digital photographs of your DNA! Find out more at www.playdna.co.uk.

PlayDNA at Fallowfields

Fallowfields Country House Hotel

Fallowfields Country House Hotel

The green and romantic setting of Fallowfields Country House Hotel in rural Oxfordshire made for a perfect location to capture a selection of our striking PlayDNA Portraits in situ.

The award-winning Fallowfields Restaurant

This charming independent hotel, which has won the award for “Best Small Hotel in South East England” not once, but THREE times, also holds a coveted two AA Rosette award for culinary excellence. So where best to start but their award winning restaurant!

Duo DNA Portrait in the Rose Garden

Exploring the peaceful grounds, full of bright and colourful rose bushes, we were reminded what a wonderful wedding gift a PlayDNA Portrait can be, offering newly-weds an entertaining peek into each others genetic make-up. Who has the greater sporting endurance or the better memory? Are you both night owls? Do you both carry a hidden blue eye gene? A much more exciting gift than an expensive tea set we reckon!

Thank you to James, Anthony and Peta for kindly hosting us at Fallowfields – always friendly, always smiling and sure to give you a warm welcome!
