Fat Turk is a fine dining restaurant in the heart of Brentwood. Having heard that the restoration of the restaurant had been set back a considerable amount by a devastating fire, I was pleased to have the opportunity to quote on the final manifestations of the restaurant.
Through direct input by the customer, we were able to build a relationship and gain a direct insight into what was envisaged. This helped them gain closure and give them a sense of achievement. Our design team was encouraged to be creative, which in turn gave me the opportunity to suggest various substrates for the internal and external artwork and signage. Brushed gold and silver dibonds and Perspex were successfully incorporated and blended well with the high specification interior of wallpapers and bespoke furnishings.
The work spread to all aspects of print, including flyers, invitations, gift vouchers, foiled envelopes, window vinyl’s, plaques and bespoke Perspex pieces. We over saw the job from concept, production, installation and aftercare. The fitting was carried out on the Friday before opening, was a very exciting environment to be in. Various trades were finishing in one go made for a triumphant yet challenging atmosphere.
But over everything, the most pleasurable aspect of the work was being requested to create a montage of the restoration. This was a 60×40’’ Perspex with polished edges and standoffs. The artwork started at the beginning of their story, retouching and blending photos and news cuttings, through to the present. When we were satisfied with the content we presented the customer the printed Perspex. This was a very emotional moment for the proprietors, who having spent two years of love, sweat and tears, realized their ambition.
