…………………………………….

This project started up and ran for some 8 weeks, a churn of 125 emails, going through an incredible range of edits till finally going up in truly awesome style!

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 a great shop…

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

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!

Dishoom Shoreditch High St – emerging case history, fantastic fun! NGS

The new Shoreditch Dishoom is really a spectacular blend of CEO Shamil’s wistful family poetry, rich, quirky on retro trend design and simply fantastic gastronomy.

And if you think that’s a mouthful wait til you see the menu… and our signwriting!!

In the heart of London this hand painted window set is a stunner with the original vintage 1920’s Bombay font extracted by Nick Garrett from an vintage cafe sign (below) and embellished into it’s new typographic context. Some of the new characters I created taking reference from the original but launching into the quirky eccentric.

But it’s been pretty tough though!… arriving on site to hand paint the glass the dimensions supplied were all out and the windows were 25mm double glazed! That meant the drawing we would use to trace our lettering was 32mm away from the surface needed to be written on the outer sheet of plate glass… in effect we were writing on an invisible floating plain inside the shop!

The normal brush controls went out the window! Literally … and after serious eye-strain, double vision and a panic attack Mat and I found things gradually improving as our technique accommodated this incredibly odd and challenging work environment.

At the helm the Dishoom creative team and CEO Shamil Thakrar.

Stay posted for the result as it looks good -dash- stunning…
