In December I had the pleasure of working with Studio Weave
Architects to collaborate on designs for illustrations for two of the
big windows at Real Charcoal Kebab shop along with the projecting light
box sign. I worked closely with the Studio Weave team where I was asked
to fit drawings into their doner kebab spit design - one depicting the
history of the kebab and one showing ingredients and steps on how to
make the perfect kebab. We also decided to occupy the vacant light box
sign with a persian soldier carving a kebab which turned out to be a
super bonus when the illustration lit up at night!
The commission was part of the New Windows on Willesden Green project where the shop fronts on Willesden Green had makeovers to breathe life into the high street. An Outer London Fund project, NWoWG was delivered for Brent Council and Design for London by The Architecture Foundation in collaboration with Meanwhile Space and Blue Consulting. The Architecture Foundation paired each design team with a local shop owner to work together to create a new window display that both attracts new customers and forms part of a giant advent calendar in the run up to Christmas (each shop has its own 'big reveal' date in December).
