Dr Seuss concept – Discover story centre

 

It was great to work on an inspiring project brought by Discover London’s story centre

We were commissioned by Discover to create Dr Seuss themed elements.

The elements had to be as close as possible to the illustrations of the iconic DR Seuss, bright imaginative and quirky whilst being hardwearing +  practical.

Have a look below to see what we  created!

We created a Dr Seuss car

We were commissioned by Discover story centre in London to transform an adult tricycle in to the fun and interactive Dr Seuss car from his book The cat in the hat. Discover supplied us with the adult tricycle ready to transform. The main body of the car was carved from EPS, made in 2 sections, coated with fr polyurea which is water + impact resistant and spray painted to required colour. The cars various components were created using a combination of materials and a variety of techniques such as carving, welding, spray painting, coating to achieve final interactive and fun result! When transforming the bike we had to keep as close as possible to the original concept of the Dr Seuss illustration whilst making sure it would be durable and practical. The car is fully usable and the main body is removable for ease of transport etc. We cant wait to see the fun bike in action at events, It will be amazing to see the dr Seuss car out and about making people smile!

We created 4 colourful trees, each with an individual tree top shape. The trees were made from an internal aluminium structure for extra durability with an aluminium base. The outer material is polystyrene which was hand carved, coated with FR polyurea to ensure the trees are to be water proof + durable and impact resistant. All trees were then primed and spray painted with a  top coat to required colour number.

Bespoke sofa

We created a bright  and unique sofa. Carved from polystyrene and coated with polyuria, soft foam sitting section also coated with FR Polyurea for lasting durability.

The cave like tunnel!

 

 

 

We created the tunnel to fit perfectly the interior space of the story centre.

The tunnel had to be made in several sections as it had to fit through a standard size entrance.

The tunnel was hand carved out of EPS, coated with FR polyurea, primed ,  spray painted and decorated to finish.

Fun at Play Fest 2015

We had a great time being  involved in Truro’s play  fest 2015 (part of National Playday) held at Boscawen park Truro.

The Event was hosted and organized  by Kernow live with support from Swamp Circus

The 2 day fun festival featured many fun activities ranging from  bouncy castles, art & craft workshops,  face painting  &  a variety of entertainment with  live music from a children band, dance groups, circus performers,  along with lost  of fun across the green Zone.

We displayed some of our surreal scaled up props as a fun photo opportunity for people of all ages and  families attending.

Despite the cloudy first day it was a good turnout. The second day was filled with sunshine and a great atmosphere through out.

The fun and creative event was a great  success, it is thought that around 5,000 people attended the attraction at Boscawen park Truro Cornwall.

 

 

 


Our giant trainer at Race for Life 2015

Our giant trainer at Race for life campaign

It was great to have been involved at Race for life 2015!
Cancer re-search used our giant trainer as an eye catching prop to help raise awareness of Race for life events amongst women of all ages. You can also help this wonderful cause by keeping fit to help raise the much needed funds for Cancer re-search UK.

Kind words  from: Nicola Doherty  Cancer Research UK

 

I just wanted to Thank You greatly for the use of the trainer, as I mentioned it has really helped us recruit our target of 63,000 women in the region to take part in Race for Life which helps raise £3m for Cancer Research UK. The trainer brought a lot of delight to young and old alike when we were out on the streets of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire. We used it every week and we would love to work with ICA Creation again in the future!

Outdoor advertising can be fun!

Outdoor advertising tool - giant hand

Outdoor advertising tool – giant hand

 

Recently we have created a great ‘artvertising’ tool measuring at 5m in length!

The idea behind the concept was to create a giant surreal item and to combine advertising in a unique and fun way.

The giant hand had to be proportional! whilst being weather proof and most importantly safely installed  on to our 6m trailer.

Hand carved, coated with polyurea and airbrushed to create a realistic effect.

What ever you wish to publicize, spread the word for your event, raise awareness with our giant hand you will be sure to be noticed and to not be forgotten. Create a great talking point and advertise with us. For more details and to book get in touch info@icacreation.co.uk


Elsa from Frozen, scaled up model in the making!

Check out images of how we  scaled up a miniature  version of Elsa, to create a life size model measuring at 1.50m in height!

First step was to accurately measure the miniature model. We cut the main shape out of High density polystyrene. We carved the model according to images + miniature model. We positioned her head more up right in order to create better photo opportunity for the future.

Because of her posture, we fitted a stainless steel pin in to her arm. After sanding all imperfections, we spray applied FR hard coating polyurethane. This high tech application will ensure the model will be durable and waterproof.

As we felt that her hand was slightly too big and bulky after hard coating, we made some modifications to her hand. We scaled the hand down, fitted a stainless steel pin in her finger to give strength to the more delicate looking hand!

The next stage, painting and airbrush decoration!

After sanding the model for a smooth texture, we painted and airbrushed the model with HQ 2K Paints. Added some shading to her hair to give it some more depth and texture. We also lightly airbrushed her skin, to make her look more natural!

We are excited to share with you our latest revelations!

We have collaborated with Something borrowed  wed and hire to create approx  1m high light  up letters

Spelling L O V  E  Lianne Heyward founder  of Something Borrowed Wedding Hire Co came to us with the idea to make a statement piece to add the wow factor to any event.

So together we created the love lights, made from  9mm exterior  wood hand crafted to precision, painted to a brilliant glossy white. The love lights have led fairground lights installed  which give a magical effect with its reflections sparkling.

 

Each letter is battery powered with a long life to enable practicality at events and give much more freedom to position the letters in the desired suitable place.

 

If you are looking to brighten up your event, spread the love at  your venue and  inspire with light up letters  then this is definitely something for you!
