Creative 2018!

2018 has been a great year for us at ICA Creation!

This year has been both innovative & productive. Especially with the new facilities we have in house with CNC routing this has enabled extreme precision and speed.

Take a look at the diverse creative projects we have had the pleasure to work on

We started 2018 with a project which is both imaginative and inspiring.
We created Winnie the pooh themed elements for Disney’s family rooms at the Westfield shopping centre. The main focus of this project was to be as true to concept as possible whilst being practical and extremely durable.
Take a look at some images of this project we loved working on. In total we created bespoke elements for 3 rooms

With our new CNC facilities, we are able to create large letters and 3d logos & custom panels.
Take a look at the variety of projects which have been made possible with the CNC router.

As well as cutting we can prepare a design file for the CNC router

Autumn of 2018  brought an exciting project of Creating a 5m in diameter PACMAN exhibition stand for Namco Bandai which was exhibited at the brand licencing Europe 2018 in London’s Olympia exhibition centre

This year we created a variety of exciting props!

Large trainer props to help raise awareness, a sparkly red and gold top hat to be used as a prop alongside a performance.   We worked with a school to create an artificial Wisteria tree to help create an inspiring space in their library.

 

We started the Winter 2018  in a great way, creating some festive props such as the red and gold sleigh,  we also had the pleasure of creating the amazing characters Shrek & Donkey to be used at creative displays.

A big thankyou for sharing 2018 with us.

We wish you an absolutely  amazing new year!

We look forward to an incredible 2019!

 

 

 


Props for events

Props are a great way to create a wow factor at an event & make it memorable!

 

We can create custom props, sculptures, CNC cut large letters & logos with the right colours and shapes to amplify your branding in a positive way!

The custom props add  an excitement element  to an event that  create a perfect photo opportunity for all attending which is great for social media marketing at it’s best and with ease. In effect the prop can be a great tool to gain positive visual impact and create a talking point for your business or organisation. Especially because of the approach &  a much more fun way of engaging  with people + media.

The props we create and are great for indoors and out door events once coated with fr polyurea which is both a water / impact resistant coating.

With the large letters and 3d logos as well as cutting them out, coating and spray painting  we can prepare the design file to cut out with our in house CNC facilities.

Take a look at some of the key  props we have created for our clients which have made a positive impact at their event venues!

Themed props for interior spaces

Creating themed props true to concept is something we passionately do.

We have created themed props for several public interior spaces take a look below to see a couple of spaces we have helped transform:

Westfield shopping centre: The brief was to create Winnie the pooh elements for the family rooms for Westfield shopping centre which had to be true to concept as possible, durable + impact resistant.  All bespoke elements were hand decorated. The wooden effect items had to be splinter free, to look like authentic rustic timber yet not as heavy as real wood. We created various trees for each room, wooden effect log seats, ipad logs, pumpkins, rustic timber replica fencing, gate, frames, flowers.

Discover story centre: This was a great project to work on. Each element had to be as close as possible from illustrations from Dr Seuss which isn’t always the easiest task however we loved the challenge and also client was very happy with the out-come.

Discover story centre ignites the imagination which is captured within a book.

We created a cave like tunnel, Truffula trees, various colourful trees, a sofa and a dr Seuss themed car. All props are coated with  FR polyurea which is both a  water and impact resistant coating.

Cadbury world Café: We created white fluffy clouds and bespoke cladding for the Café’s  make over.

Each cloud had to be slightly different in shape  in order to create a realistic effect.

All clouds include an internal fixing system in order to either suspend or fix to the ceiling.

Both cloud and cladding elements were coated with FR polyurethane & spray painted white

Take a look at some of our CNC cutting jobs

This year has been a great year for ICA Creation so far. We can’t quite believe November is in full swing with 2019 just around the corner! 
One of the major aspects & game changing moments for us this year has been the addition of our CNC router!

This has meant that we are able to do all production including CNC routing in house in Cornwall and our turnaround times are a lot faster + we have much more flexibility with the projects.
As well as CNC cutting, we are able to prepare design files for the cutting which gives our customers more possibilities and an easier route in to getting the project done.

CNC routing is a great technology which enables us to be much more innovative.

We can cerate custom panels, create bespoke signage, cut out large letters, 3d logos, elements for furniture, pre-cut the elements for our products such as the Christmas sleigh.

Whale and the snail custom props

Whale and snail rock – Discover story centre London
We worked with Discover story cenre in London to create these scenic elements for their whale and the snail themed interior space at the story centre.
Both whale and the snail rock had to be true to the original illustration as possible. Both elements were hand carved from polystyrene. Once approved by client coated with FR polyurea ( water and impact resistant coating ) we then primed both elements and applied the base colours to them.
Take a look at images during production


It’s wonderful to see some of the elements we created in action in a beautiful setting brought to life by Discover Story centre in London. Take a look at some pictures below of the magical setting!

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.
