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

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.

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.
