Love hate Social Club – aka Miami Ink

http://www.nickgarrettsignwriter.com/the-incredible-huey-morgan-love-hate-notting-hill-ngs-signwriter/

Miami Ink open stunning new studio in London  – boooom!!

This project started up some 8 weeks ago and went through an incredible amount of change till finally going up in truly awesome style!

No 5 Blenheim Crescent has become the hip city Tattoo groove shack over night and on the official opening day there was a tail back up the street of eager tattoo fans and clients alike.

They surged into the shop and the guys cranked up and started tattooing like crazy…

By the end of the first afternoon dozens of tats had been completed or started, I’d completed a photo shoot with Flamingo magazine and 2 gilded panels, 2 glass gilded panels, one wall emblem, one numeral…

It was time to PaRtY!!!

Congratulations to Becky Morgan who shaped such a great shop…

Chillin’ with the dudes… finally it’s all open…

Interior gold leaf sign Nick Garrett

The quality of the logo drawings was stunning… straight out of the Miami Ink studio and into my printer the sketch was then faithfully reproduced in 23ct gold leaf.

Love hate Launch Party!

 

So all the layouts were combined and balanced by myself and Becky Morgan creating the final window splashes.  Becky was so cool because she kept the brief fluid combining so many artists ideas yet had the knack of landing it in a truly rock n roll class ass style!!!

I mean guys cummon this is her first major interior project… walk in and you just get it all, texture, richness, vintage, 360 cool, and having worked with the best like Tricia Guild etc Becky has a super rich style edge that just does it.

Tom our talented friendly cabinet maker gave use a great deal of support and all in all the atmosphere was electric as the Miami Ink guys landed each day.

The amazing thing was the level of energy and passion for making art and my lettering.

I just took their artwork and tweaked it to fit… so the best typography I’d worked with in years!  These guys are sensational.

Miami Ink were so engaging… unlike the brit design crowd who are briefed to create distance with contractors in order to form boundaries of us and them… this project was real… real talent, connectivity, heat, real people, real artistry.  And that surely shows.

Fantastic opening day and the party was a knock-out blast!

Huey Ami Becky rock on 🙂
