Fitting Services

Quite a lot of what we do needs fitting. In the past we relied on outside contractors but not anymore if it's produced in the house it should be fitted in the house and that's what we do.

Working with the team at Yorkshire Sculpture Park and external designers and visual artists these images were created on our most hard wearing material, even used on the concrete floors.

Signs dont have to cost the earth.

Zena Bee's Cafe

Signs do any number of things, they inform, orientate. They can be nailed to fences, screwed to walls and hung from ceilings. The signage in the pictures for this particular cafe were manufactured and fitted by us. Zena Bee's is a community cafe employing young people who would otherwise be unemployed. When designing signage it is important to get everything right, the fonts and colours used are just as important as naming the cafe.

This striking design really works and makes this cafe really stand out. Good design used effectively is definitely the key.

Special Print For Special Circumstances

National Gallery Grand Tour.

Large format print used in an inventive and unusual way, all to the highest standards possible.

National Gallery, Grand Tour.
This was one of the largest projects we have undertaken to date. The project consisted of reproducing more than fifty paintings with their frames and placing them on the streets of first London then York. In one night we had all the images up to great acclaim. We took part in over 40 interviews worldwide including the BBC and many other national and international tv companies.
This was digital printing at its most innovative and inventive, the quality from Ark Display was astonishing. The fitting teams worked throughout the night to deliver the 6am deadline for completion.

The digital printing techniques used have been a closely guarded secret between Hewlett Packard, Steven Farley and the team at Ark Display.

The video above is HP doing their utmost to take the credit for every aspect of this incredibly successful stunt. I was all done by Electronic Printing Services Leeds, now Ark Display and all printed by and completely orchestrated by Steven Farley. Every image, every frame and every installation was undertaken and designed by us.

We designed all the very complex fitting systems, we worked with Westminster council and completely ran the whole show. As for the scientific department, well that was us too. Make of this what you will.

3D PRINTED INTERACTIVES

This commission from Yorkshire Wildlife Trust was one of the most technically challenging and rewarding that we had undertaken. The task was to interpret both seagrass and Oysters in the Humber estuary at Spurn Point. We purchased a 3-D printer for the job. Please let us know what you think. Thank you so much to the team at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. You gave us the time and the space to try and achieve something special, thank you for all the accommodating graphic design changes, and all the help understanding this complex subject, you really are all stars.
