The H.I.V.E. Store

Apparel and Hive

Apparel is a brand new clothes shop on Stanningley high street, West Leeds. Apparel is the neighboring shop to The Hive; a hair salon we have previously produced signage for.

The Challenge

Having done a great job on The Hive’s exterior branding, we were approached by Apparel’s director, Dawn Farr, to help her brand and advertise her new business.

Dawn wanted something simple and elegant for the signage, with branding that was transferrable to the printed marketing collateral.

The Solution

Working alongside Dawn, we specified various material and designs for the sign until we settled on something exactly right. We then created all the artwork for the flyers, business cards and vouchers.

For the shop’s exterior, we created a fascia sign made up of 5mm clear acrylic flat cut letters with vinyl overlay to the face, and locators to the reverse. We added window frosting in lettering to mirror that of the sign.

We then printed 250 business cards, 100 A5 and A6 flyers, 100 A6 invitations and A6 vouchers, and Apparel was all set for its launch!
