We’ve been busy painting each giant metal panel by hand for the past month and we’re making progress in finishing all 15 panels as there only a few left. The whole process has taken a lot longer than we thought due to the enamel paints we’ve been using. Enamel is what old sign painters used to use and although it takes forever for this stuff to dry it is still worth the extra effort since they’re made to last for a very long time outdoors.

We’re also really excited to have Albert Law come in to document the whole behind the scenes process. Check out his photography work at albertlaw.ca

This is a project with Henriquez Partners Architects in Vancouver | http://henriquezpartners.com/

We’re very proud and happy to be featured on the Vancouver Sun (Under breaking news A3 to be exact) today. As small business owners, we really appreciate every piece of exposure we get from the media.

To extend the story of the article, we really love Vancouver despite what other people think. Quite often, we hear people say “yeah, Vancouver is beautiful but it’s too sleepy and too small…blah blah blah” but we beg to differ.

This city is humming with entrepreneurial energy and if you look beyond the surface (of just beautiful mountains and oceans) you’ll find a very engaged and innovative community that are building world class brands and products. From innovative bike helmets to tech companies like Hootsuite, we have it all. We’re really proud to be part of this community of creative tinkerers and entrepreneurs. We’re in for the long haul and we’re not going to stop innovating, building and playing in this city we call home. Big thanks again to the Vancouver Sun for interviewing us and giving us the shine on our small business.

For the past few weeks we’ve been intensely working away on a project for Henriquez Partners Architects for Kenneth Gordan Maplewood School (KGMS) as they are expanding their alternative high school program in North Vancouver. The project consists of fifteen aluminum 4′ x 8′panels, each weighing at 45 lb. each. This is the largest mural project we’ve ever taken on and we’re very excited about it.

We’re very honoured to be working with the highly regarded and award winning architecture firm, Henriquez Partners Architects on this project. In the next few weeks we’ll be working tirelessly at the studio and will be documenting as much of our process as possible. Follow our Instagram and Twitter accounts for daily updates.
