This project was a lot of fun. We worked with the client to develop initial prototypes. Once these were approved, we produced 'planet kits' for each flagship store. These contained some motorised planets which would rotate in the windows and time was spent testing motor speeds so that as a group they were believable, mimicking the faster and slower rotations of real planets depending on their size.
Our artists developed different textures in a range of materials to match the character of each planet, going from crackle glazes to powdered pastels and ink washes.
For the wider network stores, we worked with a digital painted to create surface designs for another system of planets which were then hydroprinted
