Party in a Pear Tree

You know Christmas is on the way when we get a call from events company Elsewhere as they need a little id-iom design pep to complete their party preparations. This year consisted mainly of design for print and laser cutting a load of bespoke Elsewhere Christmas decorations. The Party in a Pear Tree wallpaper design was used both as a wallpaper and as some giftwrap for the fake presents under the tree. It would seem id-iom is the complete design package after all…

Cheers

id-iom xmas decoration – What did Multiple Miggs say?

Before we start let me just say you should remember that it wasn’t me that swore. It was you. Just remember that. 

For today’s heartwarming Christmas decoration we’ve got a simple question ‘What did Mulitple Miggs say?’. Gather the kids round and everyone can shout out the answer together in a beautiful harmony in true Christmas spirit. The answer is, of course, taken from that quintessentially festive film, The Silence of the Lambs. If you don’t know then perhaps it’s best it stays that way. 

Designed by my fair hand but cut by laser robot out of 5mm ply. Well, it’s not strictly speaking a robot but I like to think so. Then, a lick of spray paint and a ribbon is added and she’s good to go. The tree is looking better day by day…

Cheers

id-iom xmas decoration – let’s not talk about politics

With Christmas already begun by many of the bigger corporations we thought it about time we kick off our Christmas campaign with the first in our series of thoughtful and heartwarming decorations to adorn the id-iom Christmas tree. 

‘Let’s not talk about politics’ is a somewhat blunt but still very thoughtful Christmas message. Family arguments have sprung up about less. Firmly aimed at one of my family (hi Mum!) we can only hope this comes to pass. But i doubt it.

Whatever festive message will we have next…

It’s not like there was anything good on anyway…

As part of ongoing sojourn into painting some weird stuff we’ve painted up 8 monitor screens that are to be used as part of a giant Christmas tree made up of screens. Apparently most of the screens will playing little video’s on a loop and we had to take care of the non functioning ones.  Hopefully some pictures of the big beast in action will be forthcoming. We were asked to make them a little ‘Christmassy’ so we did our best considering it was us doing them. Anyway, they are what they are and I just hope they went down well.

Dashing through the snow…

We get some odd requests from time to time so when we were asked to paint up a wooden cutout set consisting of Santa, some snowmen, a couple of reindeer, a Xmas tree and a sleigh we thought it sounded like fun. Painting outside in freezing conditions however is not the most fun. If you combine the two then this is the end result.

Sinister Santa looks like he’s been on the Red Stripe all morning and he cares not that he’s pulled up on some double yellow lines, the reindeer appear to have been vandalised, the sleigh pimped, the tree dipped in psychedelics and the snowmen look like the result of some abominable colour based genetic tampering. It must have been quite the night. Let’s just hope it’s his final blowout before his Xmas rush…

Cheers

It’s all fun and games…

We haven’t posted for a while but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy – because we have. We were tasked with coming up with a nice Christmas design with a little id-iom twist. Which is sometimes tougher than it sounds. After a few schmaltzy design dead ends we finally hit on the ‘fun and games’ quote which seemed just perfect for a Christmas party. Once we’d thrown some green fade stripes and festive baubles on the design we were good to go.

The classy foldable board is about 2.5m square and is to be used as a dancefloor backdrop for an upcoming Christmas event. They’ve got some UV lights which will strobe on the board once it’s in situ so we included some UV reactive paint on the lettering and some little snowflakes which are otherwise invisible. Unfortunately we don’t have a blacklight in order to test how well it worked but I’m quietly confident. To finish we also drilled a few holes in the baubles so we could put some fairy lights through for that extra pizzazz. We couldn’t leave the boards out all day in order to get a twinkly night shot so you’ll just have to trust me that they look the business. That is all.

Cheers

Mr Voodoo

Mr Voodoo does Mardi Gras!

With the temperatures hitting sub zero and the nights somehow still drawing in we decided the remedy was to brighten things up a bit and make our second Christmas wall at sportswear shop ‘Forty Five’ about as full colour as we could go. So we decided to hit the Mardi Gras theme and go for Mr. Voodoo in his Mardi Gras mask enjoying some bodyrocking sounds as the carnival gets into full swing. I’ve never been to Mardi Gras so am having a hard time imagining exactly what kind of tunes he’d be getting down to but they’re definitely party tunes and his mojo is surely rising…

Cheers
