I was presented with another opportunity to create some bespoke signage for this year’s Renegade Craft fair held at the Old Truman Brewery. As I wasn’t able to work in-situ like the last time, it was decided that i’d create something in the studio in the weeks prior to the event so it was a matter of placing it on site easily by the RC crew.

The proposed idea entailed having some large cut-out wooden pieces; using the typeface and motifs from their brand, to create props to dress up the entrance window with. And in addition to this, a sandwich board / A-board for the pavement to help with navigation. Below are some images taken of the labour that went into this project.

The large scale letters and shapes were cut out of MDF wood and painted in the brand colours. The pieces all fit perfectly onto two 1220x2440mm sheets of MDF boards, which meant there were no unnecessary wastage. Templates were created for each element that were then used to draw out onto the boards. I then hand cut each piece using a jigsaw, sanded it down, primed it and then painted it in its final colours.

The project in its entirety, from start to finish, took 5 days in total; 2 for the design and construction of the A-board and 3days for the large scale wooden cut-outs.

Much to my frustration, I wasn’t able to photograph the final set up of the finished pieces but thanks to RC guys, I managed to get this shot they used on their Instagram account that shows the pieces on site just after it had been taken down from the entrance window area.
