ZUCONO Artisan Gelato Camden Passage – GENUINE Traditional signwriting – Nick Garrett

 


Above: the sign looks very sharp!  A bit too sharp so we decided to add some ageing  see below..

Starting the hand painted writing of this fascia for ZUCONO artisan Gelato in Camden Passage and with two coats and a fine edge trim the sign came together nicely.

Fede designed this with a firm shove from me encouraging him to commit to a bold concept after our first site meeting.  Really good design, simple yet with the oversized text it just is so the cats pyjamas!!

Font:  Copperplate bold ultra extended – 28cm H – hand signwritten in One Shot enamel (Handover’s).


Below: My ‘Inspiration’ distressed sign board


The newly installed fascia sign panel was pretty basic in terms of preparation and finish it must be said but that flaw offered itself up as a feature in my creative mind – remembering my Cafe board sample produced a few months ago (above) , I transformed the emotion of the sign with a fine sienna red earth weathered edge distress the panel was set for an overnight dry off and an antique wax in the morning  (day 2).

Day 1 

A new ZUCONO fan!!

And of the cafe… super airy atmosphere with gorgeous ice cream and coffee to die for… balcony and patio dining in this little treasurable nook.

I tried Cafe Mac and later Pistachio and Chocolate gelato in a cone and it was fine superb… creamy, perfect texture and rich balanced flavours.  Cone nice rich and full malty tucker.

 


DAY 2


Distress day!  Adding a 4 chips to letter edges and glazing over the letters with antique umber … a couple of final ageing touches.



Finally we have the panel finished and looking stunning…
