This colour supergraphics design was proposed for a project in North Sydney to coincide with Vivid Sydney 2017.
I designed this colour supergraphic for submission to North Sydney Council for consideration on 1 June 2016. The aim of the project was to use colour to revitalise a small park close to the harbour.
The colour supergraphics design was based on traditional maritime signals (‘Oscar’) as Sydney Harbour is still a working harbour and sailing is a popular local pastime. Two colour schemes were created, one for each hut and the colours were inspired by red, orange and pink yacht spinnakers, purple Jacaranda blossoms, blue water and sky, green foliage and yellow sunshine.
The proposal passed through a few hands at Council before it finally landed on the desk of Martin Ellis. Martin liked the project and gave approval for it to proceed on 17 October 2016.
After some months of negotiations with the Master Painters Association, Resene Paints and North Sydney Council, this collaborative project was completed in May 2017 in time for Vivid Sydney 2017.
