Conran Store Spring 2017 – Michelin House London

I love popping into The Conran shop when I’m in London, there is always so much inspiration to be found.

This spring they have turned their windows into rooms by adding in a sub shopfront as you walk through the doors, it also acts as a backdrop to the windows.conran-brompton-road-londonimg_1390

I have noticed a trend building over the last year for using Critall style metal window frames in many stores. But conran have also added simple blocks of colour to some of theirs, i saw  lots of stores using colour blocking whilst looking around London.

Conran have continued the colour blocking theme inside their store, using it to great effect on walls, architectural features and fixtures.

They are using it for way finding as well, helping to lead customers on their journey through the store.

I love this trend/style wall they have created in their furniture area, it really stands out and offers customers great simple information.

Love the clash of bright ribbons against this royal blue wall.

Where they do not have a surface to paint they have been inventive and used plants to add the colour.

Hoarding graphics – Gatwick Airport North Treminal

There are a lot of changes happening at Gatwick Airports North Terminal and whilst all of the work is going on its great to see them being a bit imaginative with the hoarding graphics.

I love the graphics that have been used to make this cash point area stand out, its a bit of fun and brightens up the high street.

The visual story of the creative process that goes into creating a mural. Made over two days, Ben Johnston designs a custom lettered design & painted mural for Project Owl, a co-working space in Toronto.
The mural embodies what start-up life is all about–some people just want to “drink coffee, create stuff & sleep”.

Great point of sale idea

 

 

Lynda and I were out and about last week hunting for ideas and came across this fab menu in a pub on London’s south bank. What they have done is to use a gift paper holder which would normally be fixed to a desk or a wall to pull brown paper or gift wrap from to wrap up parcels, but instead they have fixed it to the ceiling and have written the pubs daily specials onto it, and the next day they just rip off yesterdays and start again, what a simple fab idea, this could be used in lots of ways, how will you use it?
