We recently had a chance to be a part of the opening of a new sushi restaurant, Soy Sushi Bar & Grill here in Salt Lake City, UT. The owner approached us several weeks before their proposed opening with a request for custom commercial art and time was of an essence.
First Step: The Plan for Creating Custom Art
He wanted something bright and colorful with a fine art feel to help offset the gray walls of the interior as well as compliment the orange seating. Our graphic designer had recently run across these stock photo underwater paint swirl images and decided they would be perfect for these art pieces! We went to the restaurant to measure the walls and decided upon split image panels to fill the space with art. Once we locked down the plan and the budget we got started with the printing.
Second Step: The Canvas Printing Process
Here the prints are drying after being coated with our protective varnish. The varnish, which we apply to all of our canvas prints, will make these easy to clean in a restaurant setting. The bright colors were a great test of the color gamut capabilities of our Canon printer. The eye-popping colors are so vibrant!
Third Step: Delivery Day
By the end of the project there were a total of 20 – 36″ x 36″ panels!! The canvas prints started to take over the shop. Opening day was approaching so we delivered the prints ASAP for the design team to hang them. From start to finish the entire project took less than two weeks to create the artwork.
Fourth Step: Admire the Beautiful Canvas Prints
Once the art was installed and they received their final inspection, they had a very successful grand opening. We decided to take a company lunch to check out the completed project. While we were excited to see our hard work on display, it was soon overshadowed by the food. If you’re ever in the area it’s a must try. Excellent Food, Great Customer Service, Breathtaking Art.
