A Big Jamie Oliver Thank You

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

The post­man delivered a sur­prise par­cel to Coulson Macleod HQ on Friday.

A par­cel for us? Nor­mally it’s Coulson Macleod send­ing out parcels.

It was from Jamie Oliver. Yes the man him­self sent us a lovely let­ter and a signed copy of his latest recipe book 30 Minute Meals. Which saved us from going out and buy­ing a copy!

And why should Jamie Oliver be thank­ing Coulson Macleod? Well we designed a bespoke typo­graphic print for his char­ity, The Jamie Oliver Found­a­tion. The print was auc­tioned off at A Big Night Out With Jamie, his fun­drais­ing even­ing held at St. Paul’s Cathed­ral. Our print was bought by David Ellender, Global CEO of Fre­mantle Media for £1,100.

Keen As Mustard

We are hap­pi­est when we’re cre­at­ing bespoke typo­graphic art for our customers.

Firstly, because we simply enjoy the design pro­cess. Obviously.

Secondly, because it fills our office with love. Per­sonal mes­sages from hus­bands to wives, girl­friends to boy­friends, daugh­ters to moth­ers. Spe­cial words, thoughts and phrases from the heart that invari­ably make us go “aw!”.

Some­times at Coulson Macleod HQ we’re asked to design some­thing a little dif­fer­ent. And this is one of our favourites…

Jamie Oliver & Coulson Macleod

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

BIG news time and it’s all to do with Jamie Oliver.

Coulson Macleod was approached by The Jamie Oliver Found­a­tion who asked if we’d con­sider design­ing a piece of bespoke typo­graphic art for their annual fun­drais­ing event, A Big Night Out With Jamie.

Well, we didn’t have to think twice. We love Jamie Oliver.

The event is being held this Thursday (11th Novem­ber). And it’s being held in St Paul’s Cathed­ral. Wow!

Our ‘Pukka Print’ (get it?) is being put into the silent auc­tion, which will be dis­played on elec­tronic keypads at every table, shown on screens around the room, and goes into the auc­tion pack. Cool! When we showed The Jamie Oliver Found­a­tion our final design, they loved it so much they asked if we could send the actual print to them, so people at the event can admire it in the ‘flesh’.

The annual fun­drais­ing event is in aid of Fifteen’s pion­eer­ing Chef Appren­tice Pro­gramme. Money raised at the event will be rein­ves­ted so Fif­teen can con­tinue to offer young people, often in need of a break in life, the exper­i­ence of learn­ing to work in the res­taur­ant business.

I also men­tioned this on BBC radio last week if you’d like to listen to this interview.

If you want to watch a bit of last year’s Big Night Out With Jamie, you can view a snap­shot at http://​www​.you​tube​.com/​f​i​f​t​e​e​ntv

Jamie will be there. Obvi­ously.  As will his wife, The Lovely Jools. Ben Shep­h­ard is co-hosting. The Fif­teen chefs and appren­tices will be cre­at­ing a four-course meal designed by Jamie. Diana Vick­ers is performing.

Just wish we were going.

Bespoke Typographic Art

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I don’t often get to air my views as Macleod is always hog­ging the blog, but every now and again I man­age to pry myself away from, you know, work and stuff, to tell all you lovely people about what we’ve actu­ally been doing. So here I am to show­case some of the bespoke typo­graphic art pieces we’ve pro­duced recently.

If you’ve had a look at the bespoke typo­graphic art­work page on our web­site you will see that we can pro­duce unique prints based on most of our art col­lec­tions, but that’s just the tip of the ice­berg. We’re design­ers, and we can pretty much pro­duce any­thing you want, whether that’s a spe­cific shape or size, or art­work in a dif­fer­ent style entirely.

Here’s a good example. This cus­tomer wanted the art­work to fit a spe­cific spot in his hall­way so it had to meas­ure 120cm x 60cm, and to match the col­ours in his striped car­pet… not a problem.

Hand­made and hand painted bespoke typo­graphic art.

The cus­tomer had this to say…

“Septem­ber: checked the cal­en­dar and OMG it’s our wed­ding anniversary com­ing up fast, what can I get Emm? Had been look­ing at the Coulson Macleod web­site a few weeks earlier and it all fell into place. After a phone call and an email things moved fast. I had an idea of what I wanted. Bespoke typo­graphy. The first verse from our song. Coulson Macleod had a draft over in a few days. Reclaimed wooden frame made the fol­low­ing week. Delivered the week after. Thank you Coulson Macleod. It looks fant­astic. And I’m the best hubby on the block (for now!)”

Here are a few more recent pieces just to give you an idea of the kinds of things we can do.*

*Please note: It is the cus­tom­ers respons­ib­il­ity to ensure copy­right approval has been obtained where applicable.

Coulson Macleod Creates Bespoke Word Art

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

As well as design­ing very cool typo­graphic art col­lec­tions, we, that’s Couslon Macleod, can also cre­ate per­son­al­ized art just for you.

Just to show you some examples of our bespoke art…

This one, using our ‘Winter Trees’ as a base, was cre­ated for one of our customers…

… who then wrote us this amaz­ing testimonial,

I’d been inter­ested in Coulson Macleod’s work after see­ing it in the press, and hav­ing dis­covered via their web­site that they also do bespoke work, I sug­ges­ted an altern­at­ive word­ing. We dis­cussed a treat­ment, I was sent an image for pre approval and five days later a fant­astic and unique piece is now hanging in our home. I could not be more delighted with the fin­ished piece of work whilst the ser­vice offered was noth­ing short of brilliant.”

Isn’t that nice?

Our bespoke per­son­al­iz­a­tion ser­vice can also be based on our rough-sawn solid oak-framed ‘Love’ prints, like this one…

All you have to do is pick a sim­ilar num­ber of words and sen­tences that you want to incor­por­ate, and we do the rest.

So if you’d love to own a one-off piece of art that has been cre­ated just for you, or you need to find a truly unique gift, then just click on Coulson Macleod. Simple.

One-Off Art

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Here at Coulson Macleod HQ we’ve been doing a spot of think­ing. And talk­ing. And gen­er­ally mulling over business.

Our ‘Love’ prints are prov­ing very pop­u­lar, par­tic­u­larly in wed­ding blogs and I’ve had vari­ous wed­ding magazines show­ing an interest too.

So we thought how lovely it would be for those about to get mar­ried to be able to com­mis­sion a print just for them.

Their very own Coulson Macleod.  Bespoke. Per­son­al­ized. A one-off… “to have and to hold from this day for­ward, for bet­ter or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sick­ness and in health, to love and to cher­ish; from this day for­ward until death do us part.”

If you’d like a one-off piece of art cre­at­ing just for you, then email us, and we’ll start cre­at­ing your very own mes­sage of love.
