On Sunday evening, the city’s first official mural trolley tour took to the streets. In spite of Albuquerque’s first cold snap of the season, a jolly band of locals and tourists boarded the open air deck on one of Albuquerque Trolley Co.’s newset and most exciting services.
Concepted by Studio HIll Design, Mural Fest and Albuquerque Trolley Co., the tour featured at least 50 murals painted throughout the Downtown and Nob Hill areas. Most of those murals can also be seen by visiting MurosABQ.com, Albuquerque’s first and best online mural directory.
View the video from news station KRQE above for the full scoop.
MurosABQ.com (developed by Studio Hill Design) is excited to partner with ABQ Trolley Co. to present the first ever Mural Tour. The narrated tour will feature 50+ murals and public artworks along the downtown, EDo, Barelas, South Broadway and Nob Hill corridors. Be sure to bring a camera!
WHEN IS IT? Sunday, October 14th 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM Departs from Hyatt Regency downtown
Albuquerque’s Villa Myriam Coffee & Roastery at 573 Commercial St. NE just got a lot more visible. The new LED illuminated signage designed by Studio Hill Design and fabricated by SignArt is the proverbial “icing-on-the-cake” for the Villa Myriam building. The new sign really stands out, highlighted by the complimentary orange LED neon that now wraps the facade.
It would be well worth your effort to swing by Villa Myriam just for the smell of those roasting farm-to-cup beans lofting sweetly through the air. But now, even better, you can do it basking in the warmth of orange neon… looking just oh so cool.
19 years in one spot and we’re finally getting a proper sign! We feel so grown up now. Everything has been brightened up with a fresh coat of paint and custom cut vinyl along with the nifty 3-D arch over our door.
The card is still a concept but judgement has been made on the new logo for Atkinson Law Firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Logos concerning law and justice can be challenging. Just about every conceivable cliche from gavels, to courthouses to the scales of justice have been used. Luckily, our client told us upfront that he didn’t want any of that. Instead, we focused on personality and growth. The result is a logo that is welcoming, comforting and optimistic. It is an approachable logo just like Atkinson Law Firm. Primed for growth, we agree with the settlement.
Word gets around. Check out this nice little feature on MurosAbq.com from our friends down south. It seems even our neighbors appreciate the unique resource that our local artists provide in Albuquerque. Could a MurosRuidoso be on the horizon?
“Albuquerque is an art-filled city, and street art is such an authentic reflection of our heart, soul and people. These pieces deserve our attention.”
Great news! After more than 200 hours of hard work, Studio Hill Design is proud to launch http://www.MurosABQ.com/ … the first and only directory of Albuquerque’s murals.
