As you may or may not know, DanYELL’s first ever pop-up gallery shop is in full swing! The launch last Friday was a huge success and again, thank you to everyone who attended and placed orders – you are little gems. Look out for a post on this later in the week! The last day of the display will be Saturday 29th November but don’t panic – I’ll be uploading all of the made-to-order products in my online shop!
Here’s a little bit about the creative space I’m working in – Peep Show Coffee is a cosy creative space/coffee shop, in popular Ruthven Lane just off Byres Road, Glasgow. Joanna, the owner of this venture and director of creative agency, Toad’s Caravan, gives the temporary residents full reign of the space. This means you can DRAW ON THE WALLS – I KNOW, RIGHT?!
Before I got the inkie’s (felt tip pens, to the well spoken folk) out, I wanted to research other pop-up displays. Yes, there was only one thing for it – PINTEREST.
I researched spaces and display ideas that were doable for a designer on a budget, like myself. Now, there’s a converted camper van in one of my favourites, which I certainly can’t afford, BUT I could strive to have one 😀
So here they are – 5 of my favourite pop-up spaces:
THE POUNDSHOP (Not thee Poundshop)
“FOUNDED IN JANUARY 2014, THE STREET STORE WAS CREATED BY MAX PAZAK & KAYLI LEVITAN WITH THE SUPPORT OF M&C SAATCHI ABEL CAPE TOWN. AS HOMELESSNESS ISN’T A SOUTH AFRICAN PROBLEM, THEY MADE IT OPEN-SOURCE”.
Concept store in Dutch Design Week 2013 – STRIJP S
And there you have it! I absolutely love how simple some of these displays are. It just highlights that fact that you don’t have to break your bank to produce a showcase of your work.
Get all your creative friends on board to help you source material, mull over ideas, help you saw, hammer and drill, and of course, chat over a cold beer when the work has been done 🙂
