Christmas Land

Here at id-iom there’s nothing we like more than the pressure of a deadline. Despite the fact that procrastination is our usual go-to strategy occasionally it’s warming to have a fire lit under you. So when an enquiry came in regarding some laser cut decorations that were required ‘tout suite’ for an event we decided it was time to action. 

The event in question is, surprisingly, called Christmas Land and a total of 93 decorations of various sizes were required. Cue 80’s montage scene of us desperately designing, cutting and painting and then, by jingo, we get them all completed just in the nick of time. Memo to self for next time; glitter gets absolutely everywhere. Beware!

Cheers

Dead Pony Club

There I was, minding my own business, whilst perusing the aisles of my local supermarket. I happened to glance at a bottle of Dead Pony Club by Brewdog and realised the supermarket description (‘Pale Ale 3.8% is brewed with a solid malt base’ – blah, blah, blah) did no favours to a drink with such a name. I decided to use my overactive imagination as a guide to remedy this with a description a bit more fitting…

If this was an 80’s film this would now be the montage section where I scan, find fonts, use my computer and finally print out the finished product. We’d then segue back to me walking up the street about to complete my mission with the supermarket insertion of my replacement label. Cue credits. 

Cheers

Proper G

Here at id-iom Sundays are usually spent lounging about in the jewel room throwing precious stones at each other but yesterday we decided it was time to share some of our accumulated knowledge with the younger generation. It’s tough being a vandal without some guidance. 

After we had imparted all we know of the sacred art of paint chucking to George it was time for him to step up and create something for himself. What we’re left with is his pretty glorious ‘G’ piece. Pretty spiffy if i say so myself. 

Let’s hope he continues. Plus, we’re only really in it for the thank you notes…

Cheers

Nags Head bespoke tile

For our final foray into Nag’s Head Market in Holloway we’ve got our wallpaper stencil that was used as the background for ‘The Lady of the Lift’. Since I’d gone to the trouble of designing and cutting the bespoke Nag’s Head wallpaper tile featuring a horse’s head (see what I’ve done there) and a little Love N7 logo in the centre I thought we may as well get some decent mileage out of it.  

I realise that in the current climate gender stereotyping the toilet doors could potentially be seen as a mistake. If you’d seen the states of the respective toilets however I think you’d probably change your mind.

Cheers

Bluebeard

that fluorescent light was tricky to photograph under. This was our best shot…

We’ve come across Azrael Goldbeard a few times now but this is the first time we’ve run across his identical twin Mikhail Bluebeard. Whilst Goldbeard is a time-travelling warrior poet Bluebeard has chosen to tread a completely different path as he became a time-travelling poet warrior. The difference may appear trivial but the difference in ideologies has led to more than a few family arguments over the years. For now Bluebeard lives in 2019 North London but he’s already thinking of moving back to 2070’s New York. Those US cats are off the leash right there…

Completed in record time at Nag’s Head market in Holloway on Sunday evening. As hard as we tried to get a decent shot of Bluebeard the fluorescent light directly above was having none of it. And this is what we’re left with…

Cheers
