We have come to the end of 2016 and what a year it has been. Here at ‘Team Frog’, we have been reflecting on our 2016 highlights and we thought we would share some of them with you today on the ‘Frog Blog’. This year was particularly special for the team as it marked our 10-year anniversary, a milestone that we are extremely proud of. We are more excited than ever to progress forward and discover what 2017 has in store.
As it was Box of Frogs 10th birthday we decided to make a big splash and celebrate in style. We thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a Brand re-launch which saw us introduce our new website but fear not we have maintained our ‘froggy’ personality. We also decided to place a focus on our social media output so we can keep you regularly updated with all the exciting projects that we are working on and give you a little more insight into our team.
Our relationship with FatFace has continued to go from strength to strength as was reflected in the fantastic projects that we worked on with them this year. FatFace decided to share their fantastic Brand across the pond in the USA and we have been fortunate to share in this experience by designing their US stores. It started with their ‘Newport’ store where the concept was a simple light palette, working with the fabric of the building wherever possible and simultaneously maintaining the FatFace personality. We then moved onto work on a further three US projects throughout the year making this a 2016 highlight for sure.
Back in the UK we also had a busy year with the FatFace team as we worked on projects such as their flagship Bluewater store. We created a ‘garage’ inspired, double aspect shopfront that incorporated glass and steel. Using the ‘evolution’ palette, which creates a light and clean aesthetic, thus allowing FatFace to showcase their products to the fullest. In conjunction with this we used bespoke fixtures and created a layout that allowed customers to organically navigate their way throughout the store.
Costa London Bridge
It has also been a busy year with Costa and we very recently finished an exciting project with them at their ‘London Bridge’ site. This was a challenging project for both designer & project manager due to the nature of the site being a new station location. This location had many site-specific requirements however, all the hard work was definitely worth it as the result was fantastic. Were confident this Pronto location will be hugely successful and we look forward to working with Costa in 2017.
Odds Farms Park
We were very excited to be asked to return to Odds Farm Park this year following on from the successful projects we have developed with them in the past. This year saw us design their seasonal festivals, both Halloween and Christmas which is currently running at the farm. Both are such fun projects to work on and definitely a 2016 highlight. Everyone at ‘Team Frog’ has been eager to be a helpful elf on this project. We developed the design for elements such as their performance areas, crafting zones, banner artwork and most exciting of all ‘Santa’s grotto’.
As Christmas day rapidly approaches it is time to be Merry and take a moment to let our creative battery re-charge. Cheers to a successful 2016 and we hope you enjoyed looking at our 2016 highlights. We can’t wait to see what 2017 produces for ‘Team Frog’.
