Following an open tender process, Poppy Signs were awarded the contract to design and install the hoarding. The artwork incorporates a mix of project highlights, rendered images of new spaces, quotes from the community and Harris collection items and paintings.
The artwork was designed in house working alongside the Harris with Eleanor Ghebache, our senior graphic designer Melissa was able to work with the Harris branding to bring an insight into how the Harris is being transformed for the public to see within the over 145 panels designed, printed and produced.
It gave us the opportunity to put our latest investment through its paces – the Platinum Q3 Hybrid Flatbed Printer is a game changing press that prints up to 200 sq/m per hour, up to 3.3m width rigid or flexible media, and at the highest achievable quality. This allowed us to quickly meet the required deadlines and illustrate this exciting development. Within 48 hours from sign off of the final artwork concept, we printed and produced over 145meters worth of hoarding panels and where already installing as the last run of boards came off our printer.
Incorporated into the new layout is the pre-existing mural: “The links of the chain are of equal strength” commissioned by local artist Gavin Renshaw in late 2022 in partnership with The Courtauld.
It was brilliant to be a part of the capital project and help to offer the public a great insight into how the Harris is being transformed. We look forward to visiting when back open in 2024.
Eleanor Ghebache – Marketing Officer for The Harris said:
“Just wanted to send over a quick thank you for all your hard work for the hoarding project – we’re really happy with the finished results and the speed of competition. Also, a special thank you to Melissa for doing such a great job with the designs and making some very short turn around edits.” Read their full article here
