Gorilla Enclosure At London Zoo

This month saw the installation of subtle glass window vinyl's across the Gorilla Ensloure at London Zoo (Gorilla Kingdom). The project has been in the pipeline for a number of months with the aim of improving the Gorillas' privacy.

We produced 30+ vertical drops of UV printed optically clear vinyl, trimmed and spliced on site using our in house installation team. We even got a nice thank you card and treats from Kambuka - the largest Gorilla!

The beginning stages of the project a few months back began with the aim of trying to depict the perfect balance between ink opacity and colour vibrancy to appeal to both visitors and the animals within. The design enables the Gorillas to have a sense of privacy, while still being able to peer and see through the gaps in the artwork when needed. After only a few hours of the vinyl's being up, there was a noticeable improvement in general mood and demeanour.

Work Group Time Lapse Video

We recently completed an install for Work Group at their Marble Arch office in Central London. A new logo and brand refresh enabled us to produce and install various aesthetic elements. One of which's shadow was filmed as a time lapse video below; highlighting the bright colours and sunlight through cut translucent vinyl.


Hixter Bankside

Chicken or Steak. Not in a plain variety, the later Himalayan salt dry-aged and former from Swainson House Farm in Lancashire. Mark's Hix's latest establishment encourages to gorge on wholesome food as exhibited by their 'hip up' chicken below. His eccentric and tasty take on 'Snax' entice and resemble individual art pieces - bar food for the palettely inclined. They range from Salt and Vinegar onions rings, chicken popcorn and the aptly named chicken or steak slipper. The prices are reasonable and the offerings satisfyingly identifiable and simple: chicken, steak, lobster, oysters and even vegetarian options for those less carnivorous.

It's not all about food, an installation by Helen Chadwick replicates a London underground tube carriage - London epitomized, alcohol flowing blurring realities. A happy hour collection of happy-go-lucky cocktails (from 10pm to 11:30pm) encourage frivolity and debauchery in moderate undertones, although located in Mark's Bar via the basement. And for those more sensible - a reasonable £20 all in - pre and post theater offering, perfectly situated in London's buzzing Bankside.
