Graphic designer Gareth Bayliss, who shared Design Week art director Sam Freeman’s love for Roger Excoffon’s Banco font in Art director’s choice this week, has created window graphics for Concrete Hermit’s new store in central London’s Kingly Court.
The central London store, which opened last night, is Concrete Hermit’s second venue, after opening in Shoreditch three years ago.
Concrete Hermit founder Chris Knight says, ‘The idea is that people will use both venues for different reasons. The luxury of two locations means we can cross pollinate with what’s happening east and vice versa.
A treasure trove of beautiful finds, Concrete Hermit has long supported independent designers, illustrators, street artists and publishers by exhibiting their work at its shop-cum-gallery.
Bayliss’ window features a swarm of black geometric shapes – almost paper plane-like in appearance – that are clustered to reveal the shop inside. The design almost mimics a t-shirt design by Bayliss, which has a similar geometric swarm but in reverse.
Concrete Hermit Central London is at Unit G4 Ground Floor, Kingly Court, W1B.
