Installed at The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield this exhibition for RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) designed by B&W Studio in Leeds included a range of innovative, far reaching and practical ideas of how to put to use overlooked or ‘forgotten’ sites in the city.
Open to entrants across the country, the competition invited architects, artists, engineers, planners and landscape designers to nominate sites in the Sheffield City area and put forward proposals for its improvement.
Kokoon achieved B&W Studio’s design concept by working with construction materials such as timber, OSB chipboard and concrete blocks. We used various techniques including direct print white ink on the chipboard, high tack vinyls on concrete walls and blocks and CNC cut foamex and acrylic.
We are delighted to announce that this week we have achieved four 2011 MACtac Innovative Awards. The a world-wide graphics competition organised by MACtac, a signage and graphic product supplier, have been rewarding excellence in the field of visual communication since 1998.
This year the jury, composed of editors from European leading sign industry magazines along side technical and creative experts, judged hundreds of entries, selected from the thousands MACtac received this year.
Having previously being awarded on two occasions in 2006 and 2008, this year Kokoon was highly commended for our work including the Macallan Whiskey Museum, Honey Monster Truck, Eurovision and the launch graphics for the Vauxhall Insignia. Stage One was responsible for the overall construction of these projects.
David Taylor, Director, said “we are delighted to be highly commended again, and it is fantastic that we have been commended for four different projects. After working hard over the past few years this is a great achievement for all the team and it’s something we all can be very proud of”.
Since setting up in Low Moor, Bradford, in October 2005, Richard Grant and fellow director David Taylor have undertaken a raft of work, ranging from exterior signs for local businesses to graphics projects exported around the world including America, Canada, China, and Europe.
The creative aspect of these project has already led to some interesting enquiries. To discuss your ideas and possibilities call us today on 01274 600015.
One of our latest vehicle graphics was for iMP, a boutique promotion and experiential staff agency, based in Leeds.
In September 2011 we started working with IMP to supply & apply the graphic vinyl decals for their eye catching BMW Mini. We assisted in artworking the graphics, then printed, cut and applied the brand matching vinyl in our workshop.
