Mancave Barbers wanted to create a unique space that would reflect their key brand values. Here at Mustard Vintage we worked closely with them to develop a shop interior with an emphasis on authentic, traditional styling and the heritage of British barbering.
Mustard Vintage produced a range of visual concepts for Mancave focusing on bespoke work stations, styling, decorative display and artwork. Working with these concepts Mancave used a selection of Mustard Vintage sourced furniture and materials to produce unique workstations for their barbers.
Mustard Vintage also sourced a range of different display pieces that could be used in the shop. We created a number of bespoke display pieces using vintage barbering equipment such as cut throat razors and clippers which we mounted in vintage shadow boxes. We also produced a range of barber themed, framed, vintage pictures for Mancave and sourced some vintage oak display cases which worked perfectly for displaying point of sale products. We particularly enjoyed making a magazine rack from a vintage brewery crate -most definitely unique!
With 15 years experience in graphic design Mustard Vintage were also able to help create the artwork for the Mancave window graphics - with a life-long obsession for typography, this job was right up our street!
And finally... perhaps our favourite part of the project was making a giant cut throat razor! Mustard Vintage designed and created this from scratch (excuse the pun!) and had it carved out of solid reclaimed Iroko wood (one of our favourite materials to work with). The Iroko was distressed to give that vintage feel, we then etched our own typography onto it and distressed it further, resulting in a eye catching piece that we were really proud of.
