We were commissioned to design, print and install a wall graphic for a new apartment block. Bugler, the developer and client, enlisted the resources of St. Matthew’s Primary School, where pupils carried out some research to find a name for the building.
“Art Wood Apartments” was chosen in memory of a local musician and personality, whose international claim to fame is being the eldest brother of Ronnie Wood, guitarist with the Rolling Stones.
The potted history that tastefully decorates the reception area walls describes Art as a musician who subsequently became a graphic artist, setting up in business with brother Ted. Clearly, there is an artistic gene in the Wood family, as Ronnie is known to be a competent artist.
The history of the Wood family is co-incidentally linked to us at Signcraft: Art Wood was married to Berni Colwell‘s sister and Art’s son Simon is our general manager. Also, Ronnie worked as a trainee sign writer at the same company as Bob Colwell, when they were younger, in the days before Signcraft was established.
The designs were emailed to Ronnie for approval and we completed the project in time for the building to be occupied.
