Metro (the world’s largest global newspaper) asked us to commission a NYC-centric piece for their New York offices. Virgin founder Richard Branson was their guest editor for today’s edition. Go out and grab a copy! Here’s an image of the triptych that we painted for them.
Here’s Richard Branson weighing in on the US drug policy at Metro:
We recently worked on a project with Directv to create some original graffiti and spray painted artwork in their new studios in New York City. We were told that the murals would be for the set of The Nick & Artie Show as well as the Dan Patrick show. The design team pretty much built the ultimate man cave in their studios complete with huge TV’s, basketball hoops, pool tables, kitchen, shuffle board, etc… The team they worked with did a great job in putting it all together!
For the main wall, we did a “NEW YORK” font piece with elements of different NY sports teams and NY-centric designs incorporated within each letter. The backdrop was a NY skyline including the statue of liberty.
We painted two cabinets with a New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox theme. They opened up and housed two flat screen televisions. We ended up painting the insides of the cabinets as well.
In the entrance way once you get off the elevator, we painted the logos for Directv, The Dan Patrick Show and The Nick & Artie Show. We also painted a neon “Studio” sign above the entrance way into the studio. All of this was done in spray paint.
Lastly, we painted a huge abstract NYC subway map along the back hallway of the studio and overlaid all of the logos including the Audience Network logo.
This job was a lot of work with very tight deadlines and we worked long hours to meet them all. Overall, it was a fun & unique job and it was great to see a glimpse of our murals on television!
We were recently hired to paint a live mural for the F5 Agility conference in New York City. (F5 delivers world-class performance, security, and cloud solutions for top global websites, enterprises, and service providers.) The event was in Times Square and the tag line to the event was “Rethink Your World.” We were asked to paint anime character profiles and font work that had a comic book look to it. We were able to knock this out overnight and do the finishing touches while attendees walked into the auditorium. Below are some photos from the live event.
