Hmm, maybe there is a gap in the market for customer bunting for businesses – after finishing the bunting for Sioned A Nia, I worked on another set of bunting for Hello Starling, a advertising agency based in Cardiff.
Hello Starling’s requirements were:
- Pennants in black fabric
- Name to read out ‘Hello Starling’ in their corporate font, ITC Avant Garde Gothic
- The ‘e’ in the Hello Starling to feature an outline of a bird/starling
- Bunting to be hung in Hello Starling’s reception area or meeting room
This bunting request seemed like a straightforward order with no additional embellishments to create for the end pennants, however it proved to be trickier than I thought!
I didn’t have the font ITC Avant Garde Gothic on my iMac therefore I couldn’t print out the letters and use them as a template. I therefore marked out the letter by eye, keeping within optimum size for letters 3in x 3in for the pennants.
Also, it took me several attempts to mark out and cut the ‘e’ with the outline of the bird inside but I managed it in the end. Navigating the sewing machine around the outline of the ‘e’ was challenging as well!
Here’s the finished bunting:
