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.
When successful restauranteur André De Barre began planning a new venture in Ocean Village, he said he knew he had to call on the services of Angela Sargent to join the team in creating the image for their new restaurant.
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.More..
With modern materials and diverse suppliers we can set the mood in almost any space. Please check out the Bwin reception and Ipanema restaurant in the portfolio.
It 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.
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.

In July 2009 EuropeAxess Media said goodbye to the cosy Watergardens office that had been Home for so long.
Progress demands change, and when a carpeted, air-conditioned office suite became available in Leon House, we seized the opportunity to expand into an even more comfortable location, central, and above all, quiet!
One member of the moving party, on taking in the vista of green trees and the upper Rock from the big windows, and hearing the soft birdsong in the background, dubbed it ‘Designer Heaven’.
During our first weeks in residence at the new location we have worked on completing several large projects which had been ongoing during the summer. La Garote do Ipanema is already up and running, and we can say that the owners are delighted with the success of the new venture to date. Other projects will be announced soon… watch this space.
When George Olivera of Mediterranean Cleaning Services needed a Yellow Pages Ad created in a hurry, the staff at Herold Mediatel who produce the Gibraltar Telephone Directory recommended Angela Sargent.
MCS found that the were taking on an increasing number of larger corporate contracts, so the brief was to revamp their Yellow Pages advertising to reflect this success, showcase their specialist teams and equipment.More..
The Queens Hotel were one of our very first website clients when EuropeAxess was started over 10 years ago, and the site had stood the test of time, its still one of our hardest working websites, filling the Hotel time and time again.
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.More..
When Richard Desoiza of the Let’s Go Rock and Fortress Project was given a treasure trove of eleven 19th Century Royal Engineer Plans for Willis’s Powder Battery, he was quick to appreciate their value as display material in the new venue.
He called Angela and asked her to have them scanned and mounted on boards as we had done with previous display materials in the World War II Tunnels. After giving her a tour of the huge Powder Battery, and explaining the clever 19th Century methods of fire prevention he entrusted her with the valuable documents then and there.
The hand drawn documents were in a delicate condition, their large size, 1 meter by 70cm, and the many additions that had been pasted onto them over the years meant they needed very careful handling. Angela was not happy with the idea of putting them through a rotary scanner, although there were one or two of these available on the Rock. Richard had already taken digital photographs of the plans but even with a good camera, the definition was not suitable for reproduction and display. After extensive research it was discovered that the Imperial War Museum in London had the facilities available for the job.
Angela immediately booked the
With assets consisting of a network of World War II tunnels, an album of black and white photographs and a 19 year old logo Richard Desoiza of ‘Let’s Go’ set about creating a new tourist destination for Gibraltar.
First of all we re-drew and enhanced the logo, originally drawn in the 80′s, then we digitised the excellent black and white war time photos.Using these assets we created a 1940′s style image, developing this in exterior posters, interior display modules and signage, flyers, advertisements. We augmented the launch publicity with P.R. both on Radio and in the local press.
