New Street Art Signage

​CW Duke HQ, Newfoundland Circus

We have commissioned local graffiti artists Cheo and Sokem to paint a large, full-height mural on the side of our head office opposite the entrance to Cabot Circus at the beginning of the M32.

The graffiti design is a homage to Bristol and incorporates local icons Wallace and Gromit. Director Jon Porter said “We are proud to call Bristol our home and we wanted a design that would pay tribute to this city, something that people would be interested in.

Street art is huge in Bristol, especially in the Stokes Croft / St Pauls area where we are based and have been part of the community for over 20 years, so we thought designing our signage in a graffiti style would fit in nicely with the surrounding area. 

​A lot of people in the city have a big connection with Wallace and Gromit, both as beloved television characters but also thanks to the excellent work of Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, just up the road from us.

We worked closely with Yuzu Creative and Cheo and once we saw this design we thought it perfectly mixed all of the elements together”.

The building is situated at the beginning of the M32, opposite the Cabot Circus car park entrance so can be seen from both the road and the path. CW Duke used Yuzu Creative to organise and manage the project which was completed over the early May Bank Holiday Weekend.

Santander Refurbishment Programme

​Nationwide

​We have now completed the Santander Refurbishment Programme “Project Footprint”, works started on this project late in 2013. During that period we have refurbished 39 branches all over England including Santander branches on four University Campus sites. These Santander branches were spread far and wide, including Uxbridge (Middlesex), Carmarthen (South Wales), Waterlooville (Hampshire), Redditch (Worcestershire), Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and St Austell (Cornwall).

​We have had an excellent working relationship with Santander (formerly Abbey National) for over 30 years and are very proud of the projects we have completed for them. We have extensive experience in the retail fit-out sector and we look forward to starting their new refurbishment programme “Project Red” from May this year which will incorporate Santander’s latest branch design guidelines.
