We were delighted to be working with one of our long-term customers again on her latest project, Growlers in Headingley, Leeds. The concept is a proper craft-beer shop with deliveries, tasting sessions and of course the infamous Growler (be careful if you Google this as there are a couple of definitions!).
As their business has gone from strength to strength, the institution that is King Koby needed an additional venue to cater for the demand. The boys from King Koby approached us to sort out all signage for their new shop above Denham in Leeds City Centre. With a full window front and full tiled wall, we had two great canvases to work with to show off Koby’s strong brand. For the window vinyl, we reverse cut the logo out of black vinyl and used a bronze vinyl as the outline of the letters for more impact. The logo was then surrounded by various shapes and emblems that represent the King Koby Culture.
On the inside of the shop there was a full white-walled tile that was screaming out for some contrasting black vinyl on there. We used a special type of vinyl here which contours to ridges and curves. The end result was strong, with KING KOBY GLORY DAYS displayed proudly.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with King Koby, a great bunch of lads who are clearly passionate about their work and the brand. To read more about the King Koby story and see what they do, visit kingkoby.com.
Recently Dock Street Signs had the privilege of working with Black Cherry designs, based in Wakefield. We had the task of producing some cut vinyl for their office. Black Cherry Designs create 2D and 3D designs using the latest technology to create scaled layouts and realistic visuals for your company. They specialize in planning commercial buildings that are being re-furbished and need design to match a brief. The vinyl we used matched Black Cherry’s striking colours and brand and really stood out in the office.
There is a influx of new businesses popping up all over Leeds and West Yorkshire, a real push and demand for independent businesses! So you’ve got the new business idea, and the new premises – how do you now go about letting people know you are there? At Dock Street Signs, we have a huge range of signage and rigid media options to help promote your business and provide information. In this multi-part series, we will look at examples of works carried out and recommend ways of using signage to promote your business.
Our latest project was out at Sowerby Bridge, at a beautiful office over looking the canal. The client wanted modern signs which were inspirational and reflected the fact that they were Yorkshire Born and Bred.
We’ve been working very hard on the new Dock Street Signs website – and are proud to finally get it live! Inevitably there will be teething problems, so please let us know if you spot any mistakes or strange happenings on the site. Email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were recently invited to a brand new housing development in Brierley, South Yorkshire. We were tasked with designing and making signage which would promote the development from the roadside and have clear signage within the development.
