Indigo Art

The Kingfisher, Poynton

The Brief

We were asked to develop an artwork scheme which visually reminded the customers of the towns past.

Pickfords - the removal company had been a large local employer, and nearby was the Poynton Colliery now home to the Anson Engine Museum - who proved to be a great source of inspiration.

The Solution

Large vintage 'Pickfords' adverts were hand painted onto bare brickwork walls.

Local artists were commissioned to produce original paintings of old local landmarks.

We produced replica vintage signs from the original signs on display at the museum from the old working colliery. They were aged to look authentic and are on display in the beer garden.

Curiosity boxes were supplied which were filled full of trinkets telling the story of the towns past.

Gallery walls full of old photos with distressed frames gave another look into the past - and the characters that used to live in the town.

The Overview

Everywhere you look there is a story to be discovered and told.

Another huge effort from the Indigo Art team - resulting in a pub we are happy to hang our hat on!
