Coming Soon – Corporate Client, Birmingham

Bespoke Silk Scarves and Silk-Covered Notebooks

We are delighted to be working on a bespoke project for a high profile and visionary corporate client located in the heart of Birmingham. For this project we are commissioning local artist Alex Edwards of Brumhaus to develop a unique piece of artwork, inspired by our client’s building assets and location.

The development process and artwork for this new design will be posted here shortly. In the meantime, you can see images here of the ‘Birmingham in Blue’ scarf design Alex developed for our Brilliant Birmingham Firehorse collection. His work captures rich and recognisable skylines, iconic buildings and landmarks and we felt he was the perfect choice for this commission.

Alex’s artwork will be applied to silk scarves and pocket squares for our client’s staff uniforms as well as to silk-covered notebooks for their corporate gifting. Watch this space – more details of this exciting project will be revealed shortly!

The Designer Alex Edwards

Alex was born in Birmingham and attended Bournville Institute of Art & Design and University of Wolverhampton. His early career was as an Environmental Graphic Designer, before becoming a full time artist in 2017. Influenced by art, design and architecture, Alex often uses geometric patterns and architectural features; his work interprets places and spaces, creating unique visions of buildings and city skylines.

The Development Process - How does it Work?

We start by exploring how Firehorse can add value to your company / project / client experience. A written brief isn’t essential, but it often helps if you jot down a few basics, such as what you hope your project will achieve, your timescale, any specific product requirements and your budget (if you have a figure in mind). Alternatively, we can fix a call or meet in person to chat through your project and together we will work out exactly what you need.

We will then consult with our designers and makers to develop a proposal with product ideas, costings and timings which we will review with you to make sure it meets your needs. Once approved, we can then initiate the exciting development process which will typically start with some concept drawings which will be fine-tuned and developed into full-colour artwork ready for application to the Firehorse products of your choice.
