Aden, who is based in Basildon and recently produced the “nest and child” feature for the Palace Theatre production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has now completed a sculpture based on Birkett Long’s logo.

“Birkett Long asked me to make their logo so it would break into pieces,” said Aden, whose portfolio also includes BAFTA masks and the two facing heads for Pink Floyd’s Division Bell album.

“Six different people can each pick up a piece to represent the idea of moving to their new offices, where it will be assembled.”

The “jigsaw” sculpture, made in polystyrene with a concrete render and painted green to match the firm’s logo, will be displayed at Birkett Long’s new Amphora Place building in Sheepen Road, Colchester, which opens on Monday, June 19.

Adrian Livesley, managing partner at Birkett Long, which also has offices in Chelmsford and Basildon, said: “After 28 years in Crouch Street we are excited about moving to our new building, which gives us space to expand while providing vastly improved facilities for our clients and staff. While Aden’s sculpture symbolises our move, we are delighted to remain rooted in the heart of Colchester.”
