Envision Alachua

Envision Alachua

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.
