WHAT IF PENGE 8: SE20 CYCLES V1

This is a great shop with brilliant service that always seem busy. You get that if the person running the shop has a passon for what they do, which certainly shows. They also have  passion for Penge and Holdsworth bikes which has a strong connection with the area.

The shop currently looks like this:

But what if:

We had some fun with the cycle rack, it could even be extended to any postcode in London.

The yellow is influenced by the yellow jersey of the Tour de France, but the colours could be changed if need be. The lines around the window and awning are  based on racing graphics from bikes and Holdsworth bikes that were based in Penge and line up if you stand in the very front of the store.

A simple system of fishing wire and bike shirts suspended in the window makes an attractive window display that can be changed or even adapted for sales by adding a sale t-shirt.

Go to www.se20cycles.co.uk to find out more about this excellent shop.

Another design for SE20 Cycles will be displayed after Easter.

WHAT IF PENGE 4: TWANGS V1

We like Twangs. It’s a great local business, friendly and helpful.

It’s on a corner site in a prominent position as you enter the main high street.

Currently it looks like this.

But what if:

A little closer

Yes, all the knobs go up to 11:

Many thanks to Peter O’Connor Signs and Smudge design who we worked with on this.

The second route for this wil be uploaded in a day or two.

WHAT IF PENGE 3: GREEN BOOTS

We have never been fans of brutalist style concrete buildings. Our school was like this. They don’t look good when they get dirty…

Like this.

But what if:

 

The advantage of green walls is that they reduce noise, keep the building cool in summer and warmer in winter, encourage butterflies and are maintenance free (they are self irrigating). We think they are rather beautiful.

 

WHAT IF PENGE 2: MUNCH & CRUNCH BAKERY V2

This is another version of Munch & Crunch Bakery.

The sign is wooden formed letters on a wooden background with graphics in the window and new red awning.We had a look at it in another colour (it’s a farrow and ball-esq green, so if it appears brighter it’s your screen, some computers don’t cope with the colour that well unfortunately!)

WHAT IF PENGE 1: MUNCH & CRUNCH BAKERY

The current Munch & Crunch is a great little business in the heart of Penge. They make fantastic cakes. They are so much better than they currently portray themselves. We have never been fans of back lit illuminated boxes and putting images of food on them. When a business is small and makes quality products by hand we feel the signage should reflect that. So what if:
The sign is handcrafted by a traditional signwriter, new awning, window graphics and repainted shop front. It’s the same business, same prices, the only think that has changed is the signage, awning and graphics. The all important number is displayed on the sign. We prefer the version above, but it could go into richer, coffee-esque colours: Here is a close up of the window: Or it could use
