Branding is acutely reflected by signs that promote businesses. That’s why The Voodoo DesignWorks has built a reputation in Bristol, and Nation Wide, for delivering signs that accentuate the positive and that favourable halo some of the biggest brands out there. Our work is out is integral to brands and branding.

A great brand deserves nothing less than the best available brand continuations such as signs and graphics. That’s where Voodoo add value to any conversation. We’re full of ideas and we’re fuelled by action. We can turn the most abstract concept into an affordable and practical reality.

A great brand deserves nothing less than the best available brand continuations such as signs and graphics. That’s where Voodoo add value to any conversation. We’re full of ideas and we’re fuelled by action. We can turn the most abstract concept into an affordable and practical reality.

Here’s five words about Voodoo.

Five Grains’ Cafe Sign

The five grains comprise a grouping of cereals that were regarded as sacred in ancient China. Not a lot of people know that. The Five Grains is also a great cafe in Bristol and thanks to a great cafe sign by Voodoo, that’s something a lot of people do know.

Voodoo and signs for cafes are no strangers to each other. Restaurant signs in general have much to communicate beyond the name of the business that’s under the shopfront. In the case of Five Grains, its cafe sign has to say “wholesome” in a pretty big way and it has to play well with shopfront window graphics too. We think we got it right.

Cafe Sign and Shop Front

We started with as honest-a-looking slab of pine as you’ll ever see and turned it into the fascia sign’s background. It looks like it has seen a few summers but it’s well protected from the elements. Next comes the cafe signs’ lettering. That’s a fret-cut material with some very subtle things going on, if you look closely, those little design wrinkles are informed by elements of the superb printed window graphics underneath.

The cafe window graphics are printed on a great material that makes the window look as though it has had thousands of pounds lavished upon it in traditionally etched work. It hasn’t. Its a rather special film that we know how to work with and which can be removed if needed. There’s some eye-catching busy scribbles going on in the window graphics’ design and it counterpoints the simplicity of the shop front signs – goes against the grain you might say.

View a cafe signing fascade like this an an ensemble and we present something that clearly works. Behind the fascia, there’s a great business serving wholesome foods and lovely infusions to customers attracted by the ambience the business radiates. We’re proud to have played a part in delivering this experience and it’s a bit beyond the signs for cafes you might be used to seeing.

Give us a call if you think we could do the same for your cafe or restaurant.

Murals for Schools design theme

Back to School with Voodoo

Wall coverings and Murals for schools? What’s next, for Voodoo?

Bradley Stoke is a modern housing development near the M4/M5 interchange in the South West of England. It’s near the Voodoo DesignWorks too. One of Europe’s largest housing developments, Bradley Stoke provides its growing community with everything it needs. There’s pubs, doctors, shops and of course schools. Bailey’s Court School in particular.

Schools are all about teaching the next generation everything it need to succeed its parents. From the ABCs to the Birds and Bees and everything in between. Today’s schools though are powerfully branded so as to create a sense of place and to bring performance onto the table. Bailey’s Court School knocked on Voodoo’s door and asked for a little help in creating a bit of ambience.

We obliged.

Murals for Schools - Design Elements

The school told us what was needed and we set to creating a range of ambient Décor and graphics. The designs mirror the school’s ID and feature continuations of the philosophies and sentiments that define its operating ethics. Despite that very elevated goal, we made it look nice, fit in and really cheer the place up. Murals for schools can do that.

Murals for schools and printed wall coverings and Décor is a Voodoo DesignWorks speciality. We design supply and install if needed for domestic customers, for businesses like hotels, retail and restaurants, and for public spaces like schools.

The great thing that Voodoo is able to do is customise every design element. So if you need graphics reflecting curriculum content, contact us and it’s yours. If it’s a straight-logo or lettering, it’ll be spot-on. If it’s an autumn-like setting with leaves blowing around the corridor, we do those too. Just like we did for Bailey’s Court School.

When it comes to wallpaper and Décor, we can print just about anything and make it stick to just about anything else. That’s an idea that you can take places. You don’t have to settle for what’s on the shelves. Come to Voodoo. We’ll give you what’s on your mind and we’ll do it at a very reasonable price.

We can create your own brand wallpaper

Brand Wallpaper

There’s always been a desire to brand wallpaper. Today, there’s a need too.

The desire to brand wallpaper is not new. The means to do it affordably and well is. Today, there’s a need to brand wallpaper too. When it reflects your brand, wallpaper doesn’t just impress an identity continuation for your business on the spaces you work with, it makes them your own. Brand wallpaper and it’s good for business and for the working environment.

Wallpaper that reflects your brand is a very versatile medium and today, thanks to advances in materials and the technology used to print them, the medium is flexible beyond your imaginings. Brand wallpaper used to mean designs repeating at intervals corresponding with the turns of an old-fashioned printing press. Today that limitation is absent, as the need for very complex and costly design origination.

Here in the Voodoo DesignWorks in Bristol, we brand wallpaper: bespoke wall covering is the outcome. Free of traditional print and its limitations, we can produce wallpaper murals for retail shops and other businesses, transformational wall coverings for hospital or schools, restaurant wallpaper, functional décor and anything else the imagination suggests – or the need mandates.

That means it can be subtle and ambience-enhancing, or you can go thermo-nuclear and throw every colour and contrast imaginable at the job. When you choose custom branded wall coverings the Voodoo way, anything is possible.

Here’s how we brand wallpaper. It starts with the spark of an idea, yours or ours. We can work with an existing piece of art, a product picture or logo too. We then throw that in The ‘Works and our artists develop design concepts for your approval. You’ll love what you see.

WINDOW GRAPHICS

Shop Window Graphics – It’s about Design

When is a shop window, not a shop window? When it’s obscured with shop window graphics to the extent the shopper can barely see in, or appreciate what may be on display.

That said, shop window graphics can play several important roles. They can serve as an identity continuation for shopping centre signs. They extend the reach of retail promotion and point of sale in shopping centres into the pedestrian zone. And they can assume a role in short-term seasonal sales generation too.

There’s a world of difference between window stickers and properly designed shop window graphics. That difference is Voodoo. We’ve been producing window graphics and signs for shopping centres for years – we know what works in the cause of retail sales promotion and retail brand development. And we know what doesn’t.

Window clings are easy for the retailer to apply but paradoxically, difficult to apply properly. Such low cost window graphics have a marked effect on the tone of a business overall. They instantly take the shine off it. You can do better with Voodoo and a more considered approach to retail promotion.

Shop window graphics considered as such and designed with an outcome in mind do much more. They can entice shoppers into the premises and promote buying decisions. They work so much harder than off the shelf window decals and, often, don’t cost much more either.

An agreement between tenants and shopping centres effectively has the shopping centre sign what amounts to a promise to promote the centre’s brand and environment. The retailer in the shopping centre signs an agreement to be bound by the standards that the landlord defines. Some shopping centres actually legislate against poor quality shop window graphics.

With Voodoo on your side, you’re not going to have a problem with your window graphics. We have a wealth of experience in the field and we’ve actually developed window graphics standards in consultation with major shopping centre developers and architects. We can deliver a package that works with your shop windows and not against them.

Window displays have evolved. Shop window graphics are a major part of that evolution. Great designs is the foundation for exceptional shop window graphics.

For a Bristol based signmaker, Voodoo Design is in big demand nationally. You’ll find our work performing brilliantly in shopping centres from one end of the UK to the other. We make signs in Bristol too.

For us, shop window graphics have become a speciality. For our clients, we’ve become a must. We understand the full spectrum of application possibilities. We have access to every material and production technology we need to do the job required.

restaurant wallpaper

Restaurant Wallpaper – Food for the Eyes

It is said that food is consumed as much with the eyes as it is via the conventional route. On that basis, restaurant wallpaper and ambient décor can make a huge contribution to overall customer satisfaction.

That’s where the Voodoo DesignWorks can help you. Voodoo designs, produces and installs restaurant wallpaper nationwide as part of its décor services. Our process is fast and it causes next to no disruption. We can work from a brief reflecting the look and feel of your restaurant. Or we can create something exclusively for you from the ground up. Restaurant wallpaper is just the beginning. We can also provide wall murals, ambience enhancing window graphics and a whole raft of other touches too numerous to discuss here.

Here’s how we make restaurant wallpaper thats distinctive and affordable. We print it, digitally. Consequently, you can have literally any design, colour or pattern that you want. Unlike conventional commercial wall coverings, our restaurant wallpaper isn’t limited by the production process. So if you want a design that spans several drops, or a single image blown up to cover an entire wall, you’ll get that from Voodoo rather than the blank looks you might get somewhere else.

Restaurant wallpaper is one of a range of commercial décor products that we offer as part of our ReStyle by Voodoo service. This service is about affordable transformation. All we need are reasonably sound surfaces to work on, and a hint of direction as to your needs. The effect is jaw dropping. Restaurant wallpaper delivers a truly massive impact that represents unbeatable value compared to paint, traditional wall covering or other finishes.

Our restaurant wallpaper is long lived and easy to care for too. Bumps that might irreparably damage paint or paper finishes are better tolerated. Dust and other build up simply wipes away. Fading is minimal so it looks good and goes on doing the job you want for much longer.

We can install seasonal restaurant wallpaper too. If you want to change your wall covering based on a promotional theme, our production methods and materials make that possible. You can reflect periods of celebration like major holidays. You could even cater for large party celebrations with wall coverings reflecting highly personalised birthdays or weddings should you choose.

If you’re worried about the very high costs of the original content needed to achieve your décor goals, please don’t. We provide very economical solutions based around creatively produced images supporting your theme. If you need a two foot high fully loaded burger blown up big to cover a pillar, we can give it to you. Think big. Be adventurous and Voodoo will get the job done for you.
