Ralph Lauren

We work very closely with Ralph Lauren Europe and have had a very good relationship with them for many years, working on all of their seasonal display briefs. We are given designed briefs from the creative co-ordinators at Ralph Lauren and asked to provide samples swatches of the materials and finishes we think would work best with their designs. Once these are approved we are asked to provide prototypes of all the different elements. If there are any design changes needed, we set about making alterations before going in to production. Because we ship all over Europe, we have to make sure that everything is durable yet lightweight, to keep the delivery costs to a minimum, but also to ensure that shop staff don’t have to struggle when dressing the windows with our props.

More often than not there are large numbers of different props to make and we have only 4 to 5 weeks to make everything, but we always hit our deadline and have never missed one. As trusted suppliers of Ralph Lauren, we are given a certain amount of free reign when it comes to the design brief; we are given designs from their creatives and always aim to achieve exactly what they ask for, but on occasions there are changes that we suggest which we implement, and we are asked to design elements of the brief. We designed some two meter high gates that had the Ralph Lauren log within the intricate floral pattern, we designed the pattern that was printed on to self-adhesive vinyl and applied to Chinese vases, and we designed over one dozen different wooden toys from a bi-winged plane to a dolls house that had hinged front doors and a staircase leading to a second floor, to a train set with a front truck and four carriages. We are asked to make these whenever a new store opens somewhere in Europe.

We have made hot air balloons that were suspended from the ceiling, aged concrete effect urns and plinths, Chinese style fibreglass vases with intricate patterned detail, snowmen, sandcastles, surf boards, barrels, MDF plinths and podiums, seagulls, drums, signs, fibreglass logs that were made using a mould taken from real bark, hundreds of tartan covered gift boxes, bronze effect polo players on horses, light houses, giant crayons and pencils. The list goes on.  It is fair to say that we love the work we do and love working with Ralph Lauren who always ask us to make something interesting.

 

 

Take a look at some of the kind words our client said about our work:

Spur Creative are a delight to work with.  Props produced are always met with such attention to detail and finesse and their expertise and knowledge is always trusted and injected into projects, in order to achieve the vision of the supplied brief.   I have worked with Spur Creative for nearly 7 years and without a doubt would recommend their services and will continue to work alongside them for years to come.  If it is elevated, creative and bespoke props that you are after then Spur Creative should be your first point of call
