CCP in Glasgow

GSA and Avenue of the Arts project

GSA and Avenue of the Arts project

CCP have been heavily involved in the Avenue of the Arts project, set up to showcase Glasgow’s historic and contemporary artistic heritage, to coincide with the hosting of the Commonwealth games in 2014. CCP actively approached the Glasgow school of art (GSA) with a brief for its students to create a new and innovative method of advertising that would reflect and enhance the proposed redesign of the streets during the Games. The idea was enthusiastically embraced and received by the students, who came up with some astounding ideas as part of their coursework, some of which we hope to develop to fruition in the future.

  • CCP approached the prestigious Glasgow school of Art‚Äôs industrial design department with a view to setting up a student competition for them to design a new style of drum to co-incide with ‚ÄúThe Avenue of the Arts‚Äù project promoting arts heritage in Glasgow, during the 2014 Commonwealth games.
  • The brief was issued to students, who undertook the project as part of their coursework.
  • The results were staggering, with a wide selection of creative and practical designs submitted.
  • The best design received a prize, and it is hoped the design will be developed in the near future.
Byres Road Transformation

Byres Road Transformation

Byres Road is a cosmopolitan and bustling area of Glasgow that is home to a huge variety of bars, restaurants, cafés, shops and businesses, as well as the University campus and a large residential population. The road is just out of the city centre and close to the University, and has tended to have a fly-posting problem, so it was chosen for a trial ‘clean up’ scheme:

  • Nearly 900 posters, stickers and flyers were removed during the initial trial period, with 1000‚Äôs more removed since on a regular basis.
  • Positioning of approved CCP advertising drums gave a platform to legitimate posters and CCP committed to cleaning down the surrounding area.
  • The drums were easily and quickly accepted within the street scene.
  • They are now heavily used to target local students and community events.
Vinyl Shop Window Sites

Vinyl Shop Window Sites

Vinyl sites have always been an important poster site format in Glasgow and CCP has been instrumental in forging the development of the city centre poster scheme around them. The city has a fair number of closed retail outlets, often in prime locations, so the vinyls give empty shop fronts new life. CCP’s vinyl create an attractive surround to the placement of posters within the windows, rather than applying them directly to the glass:

  • The vinyls tend to carry large, colourful and impactful images, adding to the street scene.
  • We are currently working on an exciting new vinyl project called ‚ÄúSideways Glance‚Äù ‚Äì a dedicated project showcasing Glasgow‚Äôs music and social heritage (which is detailed elsewhere on this page)
A Sideways Glance

A Sideways Glance

A Sideways Glance is an exciting work in progress project set up between CCP, Non Stop Advertising and photographer Martin Gray, who has a library of unique and striking images built up over many years showing many facets of Glasgow life.

  • Martin has had exclusive access to the Barrowlands music venue and Barras market over the years ‚Äì both part of Glasgow‚Äôs music and street market heritage.
  • This enormous library of images is now being sourced for the most striking photographs to use on a range of specially selected sites across Glasgow.
  • The images will be used as backdrops alongside advertising structures and vinyl window installations across the city ‚Äì adding extra artistry to the cityscape.
  • This format could easily be expanded city by city.
Trongate Shop Fronts

Trongate Shop Fronts

These kind of vinyls have enabled the artistic transformation of some very large empty shop fronts in the city. As seen in Trongate, where vinyls have been installed to enhance and complement a big site in a prestigious area of Glasgow.
