Great Slideshots highlighting a massive future for print.
CAUTION: If you're as offended by the use of Arial in this as I am just don't look at it.
So it's been a fair amount of time since we uploaded content. We've been fairly busy with the time we've had and look forward to sharing more content in the next few weeks when time permits!
Here's a nice, tidy project I completed tonight. I tell you it's quite a trick to get a 4 metre length of film down in one go with a limited amount of hands...
Better use for billboard sites? Got your attention?
Urban Air transforms existing urban billboards into living, suspended bamboo gardens. Embedded with intelligent technology, Urban Air becomes a global node — an open space in the urban skyline. An artwork, symbol, and instrument for a green future. Urban Air has been designed, engineered, and has secured the billboards to carry the flagship project. With your help, Urban Air will be towering above the LA freeways to ring in the new year. The vision doesn't stop there. Upon a successful launch, it's our plan and intention to transform the steel and wood of outdoor advertising to the infrastructure of urban sustainability in cities around the globe — actively, publicly, and collectively generating a green global future. This first one is the Kickstarter!
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE SO FAR
Urban Air was born as an artwork in the LA studio of artist Stephen Glassman. The image immediately sparked the interest of key vanguard professionals in related fields — engineering, technology, advertising, environmental planning and business — and the Urban Air development team was born. Urban Air garnered its first international recognition when it received the 2011 London International Creativity Award. Summit Media — a Los Angeles based billboard company — then volunteered to lend their support and donated prominent billboards along major LA thoroughfares to provide the launchpad for the first Urban Air prototype.
Since then we've been working intensely with structural and environmental engineers, planners, media experts, billboard fabricators, bamboo growers, plumbers and outdoor advertising specialists to design and produce a full scale working prototype that assures not only a successful single prototype, but also generates a system kit that enables any standard billboard to be easily transformed to a green, linked, urban forest.

We were asked to take on a rebrand 'City Centre Brake & Clutch'. No tonly were they changing their company name but also a timely update on their branding.
We started out with a few early renders of an older style monogram/decal throught to a play on the shape of the latest Subaru hatch.
This brand has been around for a few years now and it still looks as punchy as the day we worked on it. The colour is still very current and the style of the car shape has been replicated everywhere...
A range of a few of the invitations we have designed and produced with our print partners.
Different types of card are available from printer to printer. Small production runs are available.
The best value in custom printing will always be with larger quantities however - we will shop around to get you the best price for the best quality available.
We love watching renders evolve into strong logotypes. We started out with a logotype that was a little disjointed between and old school sign type and a modern organic type style on a stylised splashback. After revisiting the brief with the client they decided that they predominately used F.R.O.G when communicating with customers. So we reworked the initial concept retaining the 'organic' green and a very literal... frog.
