FORGE BAKEHOUSE

Commissioned to create a site-specific piece for a newly built extension leading customers up to a refurbished 1st-floor dining area. Using their colour scheme as inspiration this contemporary design is the result, the architecture completely influencing the pattern. To finish the piece I created the bespoke signage.

THE NIGHT KITCHEN

Large-scale project for not-for-profit Sheffield organisation Party for The People. Initially asked to create the branding and colour scheme for their new nightclub venture ‘The Night Kitchen’ based at CADS. This then led to art direction and the creation of a running theme across the entire venue. This was an awesome project in which talented sculptor Joe Adams and I led a group of volunteers through the whole process of transforming the rather run-down former cutlery factory into a vibrant new nightclub venue. My role was to paint three large walls. One spanning the length of the main club room, another was a continuation of the CrMgYbK mural I painted the previous year, and also a large feature wall for the newly designed logo. For the main room, I used the four-way colour scheme in a pattern to play with the length and perspective of the room. See ‘CADS part 2’ for the extra work I did on this. A highlight of this project was creating the four-layer illuminated logo. Thank you to Chopshop, Joe Adams, and Simon Brown for helping to realise this.
