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!

Sacred Geometry, Artwalk, and 352Creates

Sacred Geometry, Artwalk, and 352Creates

We have been at our new shop on South Main for a couple of months now and we are finally getting settled. After weeks of rearranging our furniture (and building some new stuff), we now feel at home in our new space. We have had a chance to explore the neighborhood (YAY! We can walk to Starbucks and Daily Green!) and we cannot be happier with our new surroundings. 

As sort of a kick off to more good things to come, we put on an art show as part of Artwalk Gainesville and 352Creates on February 26th. "Sacred Geometry: The Language of the Universe" consisted of artwork created and produced by our own team and also featured a few live painting demonstrations. We utilized our in-house production capabilities to quickly produce all the pieces for the show. Some materials that we used included acrylic panels, cut color vinyl, and stretched canvas prints. Our neighbors LEJ Pretzels offered tasty treats and Rabble Housers also had an open house on the same night.

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.

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.

Cultivating Creativity Part 2: The N7 idea box and the center table

Cultivating Creativity Part 2: The N7 idea box and the center table

Interior Design and Production: Designing a space for creative inspiration. 
 
When we had the space and opportunity to add a "living room" scenario to our office, of course we decided to jazz up it up. We call it the "idea box". In this room we chit chat during brainstorming sessions for strategy and creative, have lunch, watch documentaries, research, youtube, work, meet with clients, etc. One of the most interesting things we've noticed is that when we invite our clients to meet in this area, they are a lot more comfortable and relaxed. A few months ago we experimented with pitching our ideas there, in the place where they're born, and its been fantastic!

We have many ideas for the idea box, so the room itself has become an ongoing series of projects. We work on these projects on-and-off depending on how busy we are, which is a challenge most of the time. Our clients' deadlines are always on top of the list, hence our own internal projects sometimes drag, but certainly keep moving forward. And nevertheless, we complete them! One of these projects is the center table for our N7 Idea Box. I want this space to be a place where if you find yourself sitting-in as a client, you feel like you're in the middle of the creative magic. I made a light box coffee table a long time ago for my living room and got rid of it over the years… but I've always wanted to make another one. So we decided to make our coffee table an exaggeration of the one I made a while back.

Jimbo recently completed a 3D mapping sculpture in the beginning of this year that was way more complicated and beautiful so he's the man on this table. He suggested the LED's versus halogen light bulbs, he's also covering the structural design in case we ever decide to dance on it. As of today the center table is still a work in progress (along with the Idea Box itself). The table is still missing the brushed gold addition shown in the sketches. But here are some pictures so far… we are looking foward to sharing a bit more on the progress of this project soon. It takes passionate, hard work to cultivate creativity.

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.

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.
