Silver Shop Facade

Shop Facade Design

Barbara Staunton of the Silver Shop had already asked us to create the look for one shop on Main Street in 2006. She later told is the new signage had paid for itself in three months. Barbara was so happy with the result, we were called in again when she moved to an even more central location, opposite Marks & Spencers.

The traditional arched windows pose a problem for conventional canopy manufacturing methods, and do not fit in the standard production templates. We drew up our own templates and commissioned the frame as a bespoke item. We then covered this with durable black canvas re-creating the chic, boutique look that has worked so well for the Silver Shop in the past.
The highly polished stainless steel lettering featured on the wall signs was also a repeat order, this material has stood the test of time on the old shop, with the lettering’s mirror finish always looking like new.
These works were carried out in July/August 2009, anyone that works in Gibraltar or the Costa will know that this is a nightmare time to have any works undertaken. The response when ordering supplies from across the border in August is often ‘Not this month!’
We felt we earned our Superhero’s badge when we completed the works on the 22nd August, and The Silver Shop were able to open for business catching the tail end of the high season. Barbara said ‘You are the only ones that did what they said they would do in the time they said they would do it!’
With this new shop, we have also provided a maintenance contract, cleaning the whole façade monthly, thanks to the good offices of our associated company: Ginge Sargent Gardiennage.

A completely new concept for Gibraltar was to be rolled out in a high profile location. Building on the success of the Gaucho’s Argentinian venue, and taking reference from South American style catering, André wanted a look that would transport his diners to another continent. Angela was able to draw on he experiences having visited Rio and the surrounding Rain Forest the previous year. In consultation with André and his son René, the exotic beaches of Rio were selected from a range of South American venues for the name of the restaurant.

Gibraltar Guide Book

Gibraltar Guide BookIt had long been an ambition of the team to produce a good street map for Gibraltar, something that was felt to be sadly wanting by locals and tourists alike.

In publishing the Gibraltar Guidebook with a full colour map showing the whole of the Rock on one side and a large scale plan of the shopping centre on the reverse we achieved our ambitions.
The full colour map was painstakingly prepared with the greatest attention to detail, but was well worth the effort proving to be a popular item with several sales outlets in Gibraltar.

MH Blands Busses

Cable Car Advert

MH Blands Cable Car Livery 2007

When Mandy Gaggero saw the innovative vehicle wrap that EuropeAxess had done for Richard Desoiza’s World War II Tunnels visitors bus, she invited Angela to Blands Head office in Cloister Building to discuss a revamp of the MH Blands Tour buses.

The MH Blands busses go through a regular cycle of maintainance and refurbishment as the fleet is updated or new vehicles added in. We were asked to install 6 vehicle wraps in the first year. We were asked to develop two designs to promote the Cable Car and Upper Rock experience and the Dolphin World Cruises.

Mandy wanted the front of the buses to remain clear, but with strong branding. However we were able to use the client’s photography to create high resolution collages conveying the exciting atmosphere and immediacy of the Tour experience. For this we produced long panoramic scenes right along the full length of the sides of the buses. We also used the back windows printing images on one-way microporus film. Wherever possible the apes and dolphins

But for many years the website it only needed to be updated as required when the Hotel was refurbished, and adding in new facilities as the improvements were made to the rooms.

In 2008 however, it was felt it was time to give the website itself a refurbishment. A new fresh colour scheme was developed in line with the Hotel’s corporate green, and a minimalist layout for the pages on trend with today’s best Hotel websites.

Many new photographs were taken to order, all the room shots were new for instance and many of the exterior views, as the city around the Hotel had changed, particularly the Marina View, where there is now a vista of ‘The Island’ luxury villas and super yachts.
