Warmer Winters Collection

Warmer Winters Collection

With the slightest shift to cooler weather, we run out to sport our newly inspired layers.

Sooner than later however, the perpetual heat springs back into action giving us eighty-degree holiday gatherings. This brings the opportunity to jump start upcoming warmer looks in the months to come. A warmer winter at a Gainesville mid-century modern home served as the backdrop for our recent Gainesville Fashion Week photo shoot.

The fashion spread featured in the December/January issue of HOME Magazine highlights the launch of our new collection shop featuring ready-to-go interior design products. Cozy fur textures and lush green plant patterns meet vivid pops of color in our Warmer Winters inspired collection.

We wanted to make some of our favorite interior design products accessible for everyone. Our shop collection features wall murals, decals, art prints, and wall hangings. Take a peek at the Warmer Winters collection and then check out the rest of our new interior products!

UF Health - Liminal Bell

UF Health - Liminal Bell

Imagery is powerful. Color, texture and composition all have a drastic effect on the atmosphere of a space. Nowhere is this concept more poignant than the Liminal Bell project installed at UF Health Davis Cancer Pavilion.

The UF Health team came to neutral7 with a specific vision for the look and feel of their installation space. We got to work producing and installing a radiant, full color wall graphic featuring a lush bamboo forest. The perspective of the photography really opens the space, giving the impression that one could walk into the seemingly endless mist.

"The word “liminal” is derived from the Latin “limen,” meaning “threshold.” At the completion of each patient’s cancer therapy, the patient is standing at the threshold of treatment and recovery. When patients ring the bell, it symbolizes transcendence into a life after cancer care."

- Daniel Stancampiano, UF Health

Social 28 gets a fresh new space!

Social 28 gets a fresh new space!

First impressions are everything! When we were approached to design the graphics for Social 28's leasing office, we knew we had to create a striking aesthetic that reflected the community's upscale feel. Based on the company's existing brand manual, we crafted a 2015 leasing campaign consisting of both exterior & interior graphics and large format printing.

The exterior was designed using the strikethrough elements included in their branding guide. These lines mimic the dashes found in the logo and tie the pieces together under a unified look. We carried this methodology through the rest of the project.

Once inside, prospective clients are greeted by an oversized wall graphic of the University/Downtown area. This large map was juxtaposed with large frosted acrylic prints featuring full color property renderings.

neutral7 also developed a series of iconography to be included on color coded geotags highlighting the area's many restaurants, bars, shops, and university buildings. The geotags were printed on a low-tack vinyl for easy application and removal.

Custom Fabrication at Canopy Apartments

Custom Fabrication at Canopy Apartments

Not all signage is created equal. Sometimes a project requires a custom touch to make the aesthetics feel just right. For Canopy Apartments, we developed backlit lobby signage and custom acrylic light box fixtures that really shine!

One important factor when considering updated signage is the current aesthetic. Canopy's established branding features striking orange elements alongside dark blues and black.

The team at Canopy also requested custom fit light boxes for their courtyard pillars. These illuminated cases were produced with a backlit tinted film and block-out strips for a unique textural effect.

Here at the shop, we're no stranger to large format graphics, so when MIG contacted us to produce graphics for the Envision Alachua event space, we started up our printers and got to work.

The focal point of the project was an oversized, cut wall graphic featuring the initiative's logo. A few ladders here, some elbow grease there, and the multi-paneled design was completed.

The next segment of the project was a series of double sided hanging banners. The prints were attached with s hooks and chain and really gave the vaulted space an open air feel.

We also produced a 20ft, double-sided sidewinder display that really tied the room together. The full color photography gave a pop of color to the room and provided a level of engagement as guests mingled and explored around the installment.

Various events were held in the space to promote community conversation around the initiative. The event pictured below was coordinated by Tiffany Williams of Williams & Co. Events.

The Basics of Design Production

So you are ready to take your brand to the next level with some printed materials. But what file type should you send; what resolution should it be? And what the heck is vector format? Over the years, we have designed, printed and produced more graphics than we can count and we have heard the same questions over and over. We know the answers, and are always happy to help our clients through the process. But, we wanted to share the knowledge, so we compiled the most common questions we hear and created a quick resource guide with all of the answers. This guide goes over some of the basics of design for print production. Check it out and learn the print-lingo like a pro!

Save the guide as a reference for future projects or share it with your marketing team. And if it is still all Greek to you, remember, we can take your project from idea through design and production to installation, in-house. We’ll worry about the details so you don’t have to.

Fracture gets their message across… the wall!

Fracture gets their message across… the wall!

Fracture is a company based out of Gainesville that seeks to change the way people print and display their photos by combining printing, mounting, and framing into a single elegant product.
 
A few weeks ago we met up with the guys and girls at Fracture to discuss ideas to pump up their office atmosphere. They recently won a contest from Turnstone to furnish their entire office and it’s looking quite awesome. They shared some of their ideas and vision, we shared a few with them, and then we went to work.
 
We created a few drafts and then proceeded to send some proofs.

We printed and cut on self-adhesive vinyl. Although the unusual surface of their wall tested our problem-solving skills during the installation, the final solution worked beautifully. See the finished product below!

We are also proud to announce that Fracture is a neutral7 Community Building Partner. By bringing innovation to Gainesville and their effort to work with other local businesses, they exemplify what it means to be a Community Partner.

We also would like to congratulate them as they will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony through the Chamber of Commerce later today. And we will be joining the celebration.
It’s been a great pleasure working with the facture team, everyone is super nice! We look forward to collaborating again in the future.

Mascots Copa and Lola of Cabana Beach Apartments stopped by neutral7 for some glamour shots! We set up a photo studio right here at n7 and had a blast photographing the colorful pair at the shop. Javier took some great pictures of the couple which we used to create a life-sized corrugated plastic cut-out of the feathered couple. Check out these behind the scenes shots!

Avant Garde Salon gets a make-over!

Avant Garde Salon gets a make-over!

Neutral7 recently helped Avant Garde Salon with their transition into a new location by giving their storefront a makeover.
The new salon space is full of large windows and doors, and what better way to showcase the beautiful amount of space they have than with an elegant window wrap?

We wanted to make sure everyone could immediately see what a large space the salon now occupies, so we chose to do a simple and elegant stripe that could unify their entire space without blocking any light or views from the windows.
The stripe is also a marketing tool that lists the services the salon offers and includes their current branding and color scheme.

We also included their salon hours and products on their front doors.
Be sure to stop by this beautiful salon and say hello to their amazing staff! 
Call us today to learn about how neutral7 can enhance your storefront with vinyl graphics!

neutral7 updates Cabana Beach signage!

neutral7 updates Cabana Beach signage!

Check out the new colorful signage at Cabana Beach in Gainesville! neutral7 recently updated both the directional sign and the monument sign for Cabana Beach apartments.
 
This is a large complex so the first step was so update the directional sign to be easily read. We developed a system using the bright colors of the Cabana Beach identity to separate out the "beaches" or locations in the property. This was the perfect way to point drivers in the right direction. We even used their existing posts to mount the new MaxMetal sign faces to, so installation was a breeze.

We also had the chance to update their monument sign at the entrance to their complex for a fresh, modern look. This sign is seen by everyone who drives by so it had to be eye-catching. Our design included a structure that would frame the Cabana Beach logo and act as a lightbox to be illuminated at night.

Call us today at 352.376.4221 to see how neutral7 can update your property or business signage.
