CANNOCK SUBWAY SUCCESS!

Last Friday our sales manager, Mark Wood, attended the official opening of the transformed underpass at Beecroft Road in Cannock. Following months of development the underpass has been given a new lease of life with a digitally printed tile mural, stretching both sides of it’s entire 29 metre length!

The project named, ‘Changing Places,’ was part the local Town Centre Improvements Scheme, the Council’s Communications team and the Community Wellbeing Arts. A survey was taken by over 200 residents and shoppers to find out what they wanted to see in the underpass, 40% of whom preferred a ‘natural and fresh’ design option including greens and earthy colours, which became the theme for the artwork.

The finished mural is very impressive and has rejuvenated a previously uninspiring area. The mural depicts landmarks and buildings from around Cannock that many of local people will recognise. Over 60% of the 200 people asked use the subway at least once a week so it will be a more attractive walk the public!

Check out the before and after photos below!

Tee for Tile

Back in June I gave very little detail away about a project we were working on with Armatile in Northern Ireland. Armatile’s client was award winning Rayanne Guest House  in Holywood, Belfast. Holywood is home to world famous golfer Rory McIlroy and it was Rory who was the inspiration for the design of the Bathrooms at Rayanne House!

The entire project from start to finish took a lot of planning to make sure all the elements of an authentic golf course were included and fitted into the bathroom neatly around the room and into the shower. Prior to print the tiles, we send customers a plan of the mural for them to approve the layout, for this project there many versions as the designs were modified, the final version is pictured below;

Complete with bunker, golf ball and a plug hole in the place of the hole on the green, the digitally printed floor mural was custom designed in house at Tiled Space.

Made up of photographic images the mini golf course looks very realistic!

TILING OVER THE POND

We are pleased to announce that we have a new partnership in the United States. Established in 2000, Tile Mural Creative Arts is recognised as the leader in the US in transferring fine art, logos and photography onto stone, glass, ceramic and porcelain tiles. Alisa Miller of Tile Mural Creative Arts was previously let down by other ceramic print companies, until she found us a year ago. Since then we have developed a great working relationship so we were keen to get Alisa on board as an agent for Tiled Space in the US!

Over the last year we have worked on numerous private projects. Our first major commercial project has just been installed on the floor of the world renowned Princeton University’s Department of Energy.

The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory logo measures 1.5 x 1.8 metres and is situated in particularly high footfall area outside the cafeteria, so it was crucial that the printed logo was printed on quality porcelain, is durable and slip resistant.

We have more exciting projects in the pipeline which I hope to be able to tell you about in the future!

If you are in US and would like to contact Alisa to discuss a project or ideas, you can find her contact details on our Tiled Space website or you can email her at alisa@tiledspace.com.
