The Adidas Wall

27 Jan 2014 16:29

In late November 2013 we redesigned and rebuilt one of our biggest walls to create the new Adidas wall. The size and angle stayed the same but we replaced the boards and got our creationist genius, Mel Holmes, on board to create an artwork that would be a little bit different.

Mel is the man behind the beautiful artwork in the Mini-Works so we knew we were leaving it in capable hands. Most of you have by now climbed on the Adidas wall but if you wondered how did it come to be...well, your answer is in the 2 short films below.
The first is a time-lapse showing the majority of the painting going on. The second is one of the boys setting and testing the wall (no feet on the walls lads!! you'll wreck the paintwork!)
