It’s A Sign!

 

At almost 25’ high, this giant was designed by the team at Studio Hill Design.

North 109, at the northeast corner of San Mateo and Mcleod, is a re-development of 12+ acres by Garcia Realty & Development. The large plot includes the soon-to-be-reopened Putt-Putt mini-golf, Fresenius Kidney Care and several other businesses. Additional businesses and buildings are planned for the plot as well.

The sign’s colors and materials establish the brand and style palette for the entire development and the panels on the lower right provide space for future tenant names.

Cruise on by, check it out, and stay tuned for our next big thing!

Studio Hill Design has you covered… in wallpaper.

We wear a lot of hats around here. One of them is Interior Branding*. And one of our favorite elements of Interior Branding is the design of custom wallpaper. From floor to ceiling, we can create custom walls that tell your story.

From maximum impact to subtle nuance, our custom wall treatments make a powerful statement about your business. And beyond walls, we can expand your interior brand into your entire space, immersing all who enter in your unique culture. Our clients have found that letting us create their interiors has improved everything from their bottom line to their employees’ morale.

A first impression is everything. Maximize it.

*Interior Branding tells the story of your company’s brand culture. Your brand’s history, style and vision are illustrated using integrated graphic elements and interior design features. This creates a powerful brand experience for all who enter your space, from customers to employees.

Making Impressions In Santa Fe


 
Branding? Check. Graphic Design? Check. Illustration? Check! We recently delivered a thick stack of these 18×24 posters to The Oldest House Indian Shop in Santa Fe. Also known as The De Vargas Street House, the structure was built in 1646 and is considered one of the oldest in America. Our approach to the subject was to honor the history of the location as well as pay homage to traditional travel posters. Our feeling is that we have hit the mark for both travelers and locals. If you plan to visit Santa Fe, you can expect to come across this image soon. It is an instant classic destined for distribution in many forms. Get to Oldest House asap if you want one from the first printing.

Mural Tours around the World – Studio Hill Design & MurosAbq.com, Off the Beaten Path


 

GraffitiMundo is Spanish for Graffiti World. And clearly, street art has become a worldwide phenomenon. When I took that fateful tour with GrafittiMundo in Argentina last February, I had no idea it would inspire an entirely new focus for Studio Hill Design. Now, after months of building MurosABQ.com, our website directory of Albuquerque’s high quality murals, the adventure continues. This year, my destination was San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. The local group Muros en Blanco has worked with international artists and Mexican government entities to create an entirely new mural scene in SMdA all since 2012, when murals first became legal.

The following images are a few samples of the hundreds of quality murals that can be seen in this beautiful city. (If you’re in the neighborhood, check out the walking tour offered by Muros en Blanco.) Clearly, Albuquerque has room for more great street art!
 

Albuquerque’s Mural Directory

Here is a promo we put together for our little side project MurosAbq.

MurosABQ is Albuquerque’s Mural Directory.

A special thank you goes out to Maddox & Co. and Garcia Automotive Group who stepped up to help fund the ambitious effort to get MurosABQ.com started. Information and support for the website were provided by Downtown Albuquerque Arts & Cultural District, City of Albuquerque Public Art, 516 ARTS, Warehouse 508, Working Classroom, and “a biz by bre.”

…and we’ve only just begun.

In the spirit of the season


 
Today, Studio Hill Design is supporting some deserving, less fortunate, fur covered friends. We’ll be delivering lunch and a donation to the hard working volunteers and staff at the Valencia County Animal Shelter. The VCAS has limited resources, yet takes in a stunning amount of homeless animals and does their best to make them comfortable and find them “furever“ homes. Thanks for all you do,VCAS.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL FROM STUDIO HILL.

Visit the volunteer Facebook page here.

If you’d like to share the love with a donation to Valencia County Animal Shelter please contact the shelter at 505-866-2479.
