We started off the new year by being asked to produce a 3m by 2m pop up backdrop for a an up and coming fashion brand by the name of Thomas Royall. Their range of designer swim shorts - as recently worn by John Terry and Raheem Sterling - needed a bright and expansive display to sit upon at at the London ExCel centre this month.

The 5 panel collapsible system proves very popular with similar positioned companies as the ease of transport and expandable and portable design makes it easy for users to assemble and adjust depending on the venue.

Exhibition Work: 'Waterloo, Wellington & Westminsiter'

This month, London Display Graphics decided to get all parliamentary and proper. The ‘Waterloo, Wellington & Westminster’ exhibit within the Royal Gallery at the Houses of Parliament now showcases a selection of printed black foamex panels neatly finished with overlaid metallic gold vinyl.

The exhibit itself explores Parliament's connections with the Battle of Waterloo, timely in connection with the event's 200 year anniversary. The exhibit as described by is listed below:


"Waterloo, Wellington & Westminster' will explore the connections between Parliament and this key event in European history, which saw the final defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte by a coalition army led by the Duke of Wellington.

MPs and Peers played crucial roles in the battle and its legacy, from fighting on the battlefield to commissioning one of the most important commemorations of the event in the form of Daniel Maclise’s famous painting 'The Meeting of Wellington and Blücher after the Battle of Waterloo' (above)."

LDG employed a number of new techniques to meet a creatively challenging brief. One stipulation by the client was that no white should be visible along the vertical edges of each panel. They also had large areas of solid colour for the background, which needed to consistent in shade and tone across the entire exhibit. So rather than print the background, our team came up with the idea to mount a pantone-matched grey vinyl to black PVC foamex. UV print was then applied on top in the form of white ink for text and to back imagery and pictures; having them appear exactly as they would have on screen. The last client-drive request was to have the main titles stand out from the rest of the print. It was decided that we use a separately applied gold metallic vinyl to fit the need that also helped to bring in and compliment the gold gilded frames used on the exhibit and all around the gallery.

IAB Mobile Engage 2015

Last week London Display Graphics produced an array of signage for the annual Mobile Engage conference. Celebrating and showcasing the power and effectiveness of mobile connectivity as well as the opportunities it offers for brands and specific organisations.

The bulk of the production produced detailed mint green vinyl mounted onto white and black PVC plastic boards and vast amounts of cut and applied way-finding vinyl graphics. The most significant production method included mounting full sheets of 3mm Foamex with Mint vinyl and kiss cutting the artwork to peel away and leave a clean and finished design; creating an essential time-saving technique for nailing consistent colour and finish. This minty eye candy created a vibrant and consistently themed atmosphere within and throughout the Mermaid Theater in London Blackfriars, EC4, of which this was the 6th year running of the conference.

Eye-engaging and energetic, the circular and patterned design (created by O-Street - created a kinetic and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere full of fluidity and energy, while still in-keeping with the technological and modernistic tones of the content within the conference.

The multitude of way-finding graphics, flat-bed printed signage and even glow in the dark cut vinyl lighting up the auditorium really did engage and challenge our production house, enriching a dynamic project with creative problem solvers and solution givers.

Until next year!
