Galleries case study; Dickinson and Yorkshire Sculpture Park Joan MirĂ³ exhibition

The Brief

To consult on the best materials and colours for the exhibition graphics and to work to the detailed instructions provided by the clients.
To supply and fix internal gallery graphics.
To survey site, design and make two metal signs for fitting to exterior railings that enable the secure and attractive display of poster style graphics to passers-by on the street and, furthermore, be suitable for removing and re-using a number of times a year for subsequent exhibitions.
To complete the work within seven working days.

What did we do?

We submitted scale lettering layouts for approval where these had not been provided by the clients and provided estimates of overall cost. We printed a full colour image on ‘digital wallpaper’ at 2 metres x 2.5 metres overall size and fixed this to a gallery wall. We cut vinyl lettering for three other gallery reception room walls and fixed this on site. We fixed six image prints provided by the client all as detailed instructions. We made the exterior sign panels and fixed them to the Jermyn Street railings with discreet bolts and clamps behind. We printed matt laminated self adhesive vinyl posters and applied these to the railings signs.

The Client Quote

“We have used Kevin for more than 10 years for both exhibition and permanent gallery sign work. Everything from vinyl to burnished gold leaf lettering. We have found him a good source of advice on very many aspects of sign making and the producer of good quality, lasting work at an acceptable price.”
