Cafe Graphics

I love this huge graphic on the side of a cafe in Soho London, It harks back to the past using typography but with a modern twist as it has been digitally printed.IMG_2632

The building, situated at 196A Piccadilly, London, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1922, became one of the most iconic locations in the British capital. In this incredible setting, Maison Assouline has chosen to open the doors, for the first time, to its complete world of culture and lifestyle.

Hand painted christmas window in Albi France

This goes to show you don’t have to spend a fortune on Christmas decorations for your store window if you have a little talent or know someone who does.

Hand painting graphics onto your glass is an age old tradition that I’m glad to see is still going.

Notcutts’ street food dining experience by Dalziel and Pow

We’ve brought our market-inspired dining concept to the Notcutts garden centre in Wheatcroft, Nottingham. Taking the scheme a step further, having originally launched the concept in the Notcutt’s Pembury branch earlier this year, we sourced three reconditioned Citroen H vans to act as standalone food sellers. Each van is individually named, branded and themed, and centre on traditional British cuisine. Dishes are cooked from scratch in each unit, enhancing the ‘independents’ feel. The Citroens are joined by an array of market stalls that provide locally sourced produce.

Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows 2014

Bergdorf Goodman in New York decided to base each window on a major art form, drawing equally from the fine arts, performing arts and applied arts. For its main windows, the retailer settled on literature, architecture, theatre, painting, music, dance, sculpture and film. Each window is designed independently from the others but the entire set of windows constitutes a sort of eight-lesson course in art appreciation. Windows photographed by Ricky Zehavi.

Barney’s New York Holiday Windows 2014

They don’t call it BAZ DAZZLED for nothing. At last week’s unveiling of the holiday windows, Madison Avenue transformed into an otherworldly sensory experience, a stunning wonderland of woodland creatures, ice dancers, naughty elves, larger-than-life sets, and beats from our melodic obsession of the moment, Pentatonix. For the wizards behind the curtain—that would be Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin, and Barneys’ own Dennis Freedman—the motivation was always to delight, inspire, and surprise. “You want people to see things in a way they’ve never seen them before,” said Freedman. Mission accomplished.

Until the new year, the fantastical displays will feature both live performances and mechanical masterworks, in the form of hypnotizing spiral snowflakes by artist Anthony Howe and Chris Cole’s larger-than-life gilded owl flapping its wings. While the above video about the making of the windows and montages below certainly give a snapshot into the groundbreaking vision and the intricacies of the scenes’ creation, making a trip to 61st and Madison to see them for yourself is a necessity this holiday season. A detailed schedule of performances to plan your visit follows. Prepare to be…well…dazzled.

LOVE
A magical corner of Central Park is the mythical setting for the first window, which depicts a forest of 9-foot chromed mushrooms in a rainbow of colors. Elphresh the elf contorts and dances in and around his 14-foot-wide gold and bejeweled boom box, in pursuit of his impossible love, Elfemeral. 10733980_10152841959774244_6609209961328309523_n

BEAUTY
The Spirits of the Snow star in this window, realized by Washington-based artist Anthony Howe and voiced by Pentatonix. These handmade kinetic sculptures, previously only seen as outdoor wind machines, come to life within the window—the first time Howe’s work has been shown in an interior space. The movement of these spirited characters is entirely generated by wind machines, which sets them into mesmerizing motion.

TRUTH
Artist and sculptor Chris Cole has created an 8-foot-tall, 6-foot-wide steampunk talking owl which gravely speaks his words of wisdom, scored to Pentatonix’s version of Madonna’s “Holiday.”

FREEDOM
Celestina the ice princess, imprisoned for eternity in her ice cave in our mythical tale, skates forlornly in the last window while dreaming of freedom.
