Mid way through 2014 we completed a mural project on the walls of Post Office place in Richmond. Designed by Reko Rennie, and commissioned by the Arts & Cultural Services Dept. of City Of Yarra, our brief from was to turn the idea into a finished work. Drawing on traditional signwriting skills we completed the work over 2 weekends with a small team of traditional signwriters - all using paint and brushes! The people we worked with at City of Yarra Arts & Cultural Services Dept.deserve a huge amount of credit for seeing this project through over a lengthy 6 month period. The public response has been positive and so was the response from our client.

One of our most valued clients COMBI underwent a slight re-brand when they moved to their current premises in Elwood. With the talented Luke Henley in charge of design, Anthony and Penny created a seriously cool and popular place to "feed the soul" Our brief was to create a range of signs which started with fabricated 3D steel "raw" letters treated to rust over time. Next were the hand painted and signwritten timber panels dotted around the premises and last but not least, a steel framed timber clad light box internally illuminated with LED's. The end result is a testament to their commitment to creating something spectacular - and we love that they trust us to turn their ideas into a reality!

The Boatbuilders Yard bar and cafe, located next to Polly Woodside at South Wharf, have a huge canvas in their outdoor bar area that changes approximately every 6 months. They use an innovative program where designers are asked to submit designs to suit the site. This provides a great opportunity for them to get their work on display in such a prominent place. Our brief is to translate the design into signage that can be installed on the canvas - on site! One of our jobs of note was to print and install a design using translucent vinyl so that it lights up from the internal lighting within the building. The effect was great. Get down there for a drink and have a look!
