The Brief

Using the exhibition marketing and design as inspiration, create engaging theming that reflects the historical content of the subject matter.

The Challenge

Fast turnarounds and different areas requiring different solutions.

The Outcome

Using the main colours of navy blue and gold, we took the theme of the cloud used in marketing, to conjure up rich-looking drape hangings representing the period’s banners and pentacles. These were placed in threes around the spaces and created grandeur above the guests’ heads. Centrepieces bore clouds and floating lights, ethereal in completion.

Lizz and the team at Cut the Mustard are great to work with. When flare is required to highlight a function or to add imaginative contour to an event, then Cut the Mustard provides exceptional bespoke design and supply. We have full confidence that they provide the sparkle required to lift any project out of the mundane and into a place where the audience is immersed into the experience. From initial concept meetings, to delivery and install, all runs smoothly with a good laugh and sense of humour.
