Green common

Green Common is a new chain of bio and vegan food stores with whom I have had the chance to collaborate this past summer. We first worked on the design of the entry wall of their new store located in Central. It is a beautiful space shared with the OVO group.

With this mural, we really wanted to give a more accessible and artistic dimension to the general image of the shop. I thought that a paint treatment and a reinterpretation of the leaves of their logo would be an interesting stance. And the Green Common team quickly agreed to it.

The installation took two days because we had to let each colour dry before working on the next one. We decided to use stencils to make sure the lines of the leaves looked perfect. Because we drew directly onsite, we were able to adjust the colours to the lighting for more accurate shades.

My second mission for Green Common was to come up with the illustrations appearing on the different signs inside the store.

From there, we developed a collection of posters already available for sale in both Green Common stores in Wanchai and Sheung Wan. These products will be available soon in our e-boutique so stay tuned. Here is a little glimpse!

As usual, the Hong Kongese teams were extremely helpful and courteous which made working in a noisy and dusty environment less demanding. A big thanks to the people of OVO and Green Common for their kindness and care.

A couple of days ago, we were able to put to the test our new stencils, from the “Birdy” collection, during the “Everybody back to school” charity event organized by 513 Paint Shop.

Here are a few pictures of that wonderful afternoon!

We’ve also tested them on fabrics, with felt pens or copper foil thanks to Elsa’s magic fingers!
As you can see, the options are endless ^^

Now get to your brushes! I am sure you have all kinds of walls, furniture, boxes, bags, tee-shirts in your homes waiting to be customized.
The texture of the paint provided by the 513 Paint Shop was ideal for this type of activity. I highly recommend it. It also works with any type of liquid or spray paint.

The stencils will be available by tomorrow on our e-shop and as soon as next week at the 513 Paint Shop at the PMQ.
Stay tuned!
