This has been a long time in the making but we are finally getting somewhere in dragging Plymouth into the 21st century! Urban art, synonymous with Bristol, Brighton and London could be getting more exposure here!
We have managed to get hold of a massive hoarding in a central location. And we need YOUR help to inspire the fair people of Plymouth and bring some colour into a neglected part of town.
Check out our Projects page for more info and how you can get involved.
We have just finished installing these large banners for Plymouth College of Art, promoting the summer shows for the students at the college. Nice iconic ice creams artwork by Eliot Sleep, I love a Twister! Thanks to Ben at Tavy Signs for his assistance on the install. It was a good view from up there! Good luck to all the students graduating this year.
We recently produced this window display for Gro. They were pitching some new products to their clients and we worked with their designers to produce this eye-catching display. There were hanging prints and profile cut logos complimented by a cute SAV window graphic.
Thanks to David, Ben, Liz and the rest of the team at Gro. It was one of those days where everything seemed to be against us but it looked sweet in the end and the meeting was a success! Nice one Team Gro!
I have been working on the graphics for the hoardings surrounding the site of the new creative school being built in Millbay, Plymouth. The Plymouth School of Creative Arts is a visionary new school for Plymouth, sponsored by The Plymouth College of Art. For more information please check out their website. The building and construction site is being managed by the Kier Group PLC.
The Initial designs and concepts were created by Steve at Prior Creative, with input from the creative and marketing team at the school. I was asked to transfer the graphics from screen to board. It was a fairly tricky project to produce and install due to its size, over 150m of hoarding / approximately 200m2 of self adhesive vinyl!
It looks great and has generated lots of interest from the local community. It was just a building site at the start of last week, now the site has some meaning to people, something to get excited about.
The Milbay area is experiencing a regeneration at the moment, hopefully this will encourage people to claim back the neglected areas of Plymouth, like Union Street and the old Palace Theater Building for example.
I would like to thank Josie at The Plymouth School of Creative Arts, Andy at Kier and Steve at Prior Creative for their support during this project.
I was asked to paint a perspex piece based on some hummingbird wallpaper. It will be a centerpiece for a bedroom wall.
I cut the stencils and sprayed each layer to build up the colours. Using each side of the clear perspex gives it depth and texture. It was tricky spraying on the back as you have to apply the layers back to front.
If you need a piece to match your decor at home or work and cant seem to find anything, I could make something for you.
Produced in association with Upfest. These Perspex pieces were produced from scans of the artists original canvas. Produced to limited editions they look fresh and would suit any home / business. They have a multidimensional feel as they are produced with graphics applied to both front and back surfaces. So much better than the run of the mill canvas reproductions.
Created from a collage of photographs by the artist Mimik. This lightbox was produced with the permission of Banksy himself to commemorate his Cans festival in Southwark in 2008. Only 10 were commissioned. A beautiful and rare piece.
Using a unique stretched fabric and metal framed extrusion we were able to install these eye-catching graphics throughout their offices.
An extremely popular option now, stretched fabric images are great simply because they can be de-installed and replaced with ease. So updating images for new trends or promotions is relatively simple and clean. Great for retail and fashion industries.
The print itself is produced using dye sublimation, a great medium for images like this. Long lasting and durable, the frames themselves create an almost seamless link between images… no more overlaps!
The other potential benefit to these systems is that they can be produced with LEDs inside to create a light wall!
We also installed the reception signage, profile cut perspex on locators.
Working with Graphica Display, who project managed and produced all the wide-format print and vinyl for this project. BigUps worked alongside Graphica’s installation team to create some ultra modern interior graphics for this trendy London based design and marketing firm. As featured recently on BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’. Here’s what they do…
