NMIS Cycle Shelter 1

Creative Process

Falco UK Ltd asked us to produce and install graphics from their client’s design using materials recommended by ourselves appropriate for the exterior construction material of perforated and solid steel panels.

NMIS provided an outline of the graphics they required for the cycle shelter. We adapted this within our design software to ensure it would fit the final construction plan. We then used this for the production of the graphics.

Materials used

We used the highest rated white vinyl from Metamark to create the graphics for the solid panels. For the perforated panels we used a Metamark paint mask vinyl to spray paint the graphics on these sections.


Once the vinyls and masks were prepared we travelled to Glasgow and following site induction procedures installed the graphics on-site.

Design & Production process

NMIS supplied the initial design which required conversion by our artwork team prior to the plotting out of the white vinyl and paint mask vinyl on our in-house Roland Wide Format Plotter.
