47 Brand “Players Card” Photo Booth

This past May we worked with 47Brand again to create another fun interactive experience for the attendees of the Boston Calling music festival. We came up with the idea of a “baseball card style” custom photo booth with a hand painted backdrop of Fenway Park, custom lighting for the evening hours and a hand full of gear and props from 47 Brand.

Needless to say it was a lot of fun watching people get geared up and pose all night. The results can be found on instagram and Facebook under the hashtag #47brand.

Great times once again working with Ryan and crew at 47 Brand. Can’t wait to do it again in September!

Rooftop Garden @ Kendall Center

We we’re excited to be asked by Josh Winer to join a big project for the Rooftop Garden at Kendall Center (formerly Cambridge Center) late this summer. The project was our largest to date and challenged us in many ways, but it was a great experience overall, especially working with Josh and DCL.

FYI – the artwork in this project is not ours. We are just rendering a provided design.









47Brand @ Boston Calling

After a fun debut with Project SF at Boston Calling last spring, Studio Fresh joined 47Brand again this September for a blown out version of our first appearance. Over the course of the three day/night event we built a 10ft x 20ft diorama of Boston, complete with lights for the night display.

Chew Lab Sign

Driftwood, Latex & Copper, 50" x 18"Detail of copper leaves with patinaChew Lab SignAfter successfully completing the interior mural for Chew Innovation Lab, we began work on an exterior sign for over the front door on Western Ave. Built out of found driftwood and copper sheets with applied patina, it is painted to match the company logo and backlit with LED for night time illumination.

We are thrilled with how this came out and look forward to doing more three-dimensional work like this!




Closer to Free Mural

We received a request to help out with the production of a mural in New Haven, CT for the Yale Cancer Centers “Closer to Free” program, bringing inspiration and awareness to others in the fight against cancer. The end product was to be used in a TV commercial highlighting the hospitals program. The style was a little different than what we are used to painting, so it was a fun challenge to reproduce their provided artwork on a 30′ scale.

The end mural was left “unfinished” on purpose so the actual program participants, survivors themselves, could finish the mural while being filmed for a eventual TV commercial. Check out the 60 second spot below!

Thanks to everyone involved to allowing us to participate in such a great project, and special thanks to Caleb Neelon for helping organize and execute this one. (And of course New Haven for the pizza!!!)

Tretorn Backyard Photo Booth

Had a fun project come across our worktable the other day. Our friends at Tretorn had a special request for us… build an 8ft x 8ft “photo booth” for display in the Tretorn Backyard during the Newport Folk Festival at Fort Adams in Newport, RI. Tretorn wanted something where concert goers could stand behind a frame/facade which made it look like they were wearing Tretorn shoes and then take photos to share on Instagram etc. So this meant it had to be strong enough for people to stand/lean on and be easily broken down/set up for transport to location etc. Oh, and it also had to look good…

After a lot of planning, a trip to the hardware store and some fun putting shoes through the table saw… we ended up with what you see below.

It seemed to be a big hit in the Tretorn Backyard (we even got in on the action ourselves) and more importantly it didn’t fall apart!

Thanks for the fun project Tretorn!
