Origins – Somerset House

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With the launch of the exhibition ‘Mushrooms; The Art, design and Future of Fungi’ at Somerset House, Origins collaborated with their product, ‘Mega Mushroom’ for a pop-up shop and evening event.   Being given an eco conscious brief by the creative team at Origins, we at Hello Flamingo assembled and created three dimensional mushrooms in an array of recyclable materials. Our production team handmade multiple mushrooms, sculpted from paper and card then arranged and layered these to create an enticing display ready for the upcoming exhibition at Somerset house. The mushrooms were installed against a moss wall to showcase the products with giant hanging mushrooms chandeliers in the Somerset House gift shop. An evening event showcasing Origins products in the Spring Restaurant featured two giant archways filled with three dimensional mushrooms creating walkways into the venue. Tiny mushrooms were handmade to dress the tables in the venue. What a fab project to work on! x[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Ted Baker have recently re-designed and re-opened the Dubai Mall store with a tailor-made makeover, ‘Hand Sewn House’.   The store is divided into Sections with the themes – Gentleman's lounge, Drawing room, Library, Music and Tea rooms.  We were part of the creative process in developing bespoke displays for each of the areas.   We created 15 bespoke Domed displays cases, filled with vintage trinkets, creating beautiful centre pieces with the them and the Ted Baker humour. The tea room was filled with cake stands, the walls dressed with vintage desert spoon sculptures and tea sets with poured tea floating out of the pots and cups. Vintage sewing machines and  musical instruments sit on the shelves amongst the product. Yet again the Ted Baker Store design team have created a beautiful store and we loved being part of the finishing touches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Too Faced – Christmas 2019

Hello Flamingo were delighted to be asked by Too Faced to work on their Liverpool store Christmas scheme. The creative brief and designs were submitted by the client. The theme was a ‘Gingerbread House’ with Gingerbread people, candy canes and frosting. To bring the concept to life, we produced 3D icing, sweets and gingerbread using moulds and poly sculpting all topped off with scenic painting.  These were all finished to a high quality and applied to the exterior of the building. The printed elements consisted of printed versions of their products which hung on pink ribbons and detailed vinyl’s were placed across the entire window to bring the whole sweet scene together. The set was installed by Hello Flamingo and the final result was so much festive fun. What a fantastic window to work on!...

Too Faced – Selfridges

Hello Flamingo, were very excited to work with the creative team at Too Faced to manufacture their Future Fantasy window in Selfridges to promote their Too Faced BTS Lash bar. The Selfridges brief was to give a nod to the old fairy tales, but in a less obvious way. To convey the magic of Christmas but with contemporary storytelling. Too Faced decided on the famous story of the Ugly Duckling. We used a mixture of reflective, iridescent and metallic materials. Mirror walls acted as a backdrop with two-way mirror on the floor with a powder pink ‘You were beautiful all along’ neon sign set below to flash intermittedly.  To look into the mirror from above, we produced a large white swan, flocked with soft pink highlights and giant eyelashes. Hello Flamingo set about creating a space to showcase the product.  We created an outsized ‘Better than Sex' mascara factice with mascara brush and...

Ted Baker – Jakata

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Hello Flamingo are always excited to work on the creative projects with the Ted Baker's store design team, with each store having their own unique identity to the location. This recent project reflects on the love of tea!  We developed various ideas before finalising the theme. The end production resulted in gold sprayed cloud sculptures, made from chicken wire combined with tea-coloured, resin rain drops.  The clouds were hand sculpted by our talented production team and tea pots were sprayed to match the colour palette of the store are pouring into the clouds with the tea rain drops pouring through. Dried flowers were set into the resin to resemble herbal teas, all hung as the central feature in the store.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
