When Yeah Can opened its doors at the end of January 2011 one thing that they never thought they would end up doing was interior design/decoration. This design studio was focused on working in logo, web and graphic design. Interior design. Naah.
Well, it goes to show one should never presume. Because interior design it is at the moment. Having the Hope Center as a pro bona client has meant an adjustment in the thinking of what design is all about.
Not only is team Yeah Can designing the CI, printed material and web presence but the involvement with Hope Center is much more. Street signs were designed. Then input into the uniforms, help with handicraft product design and now the interior design of the new shop.
The retail space was a wreck. To put it mildly. First the floor had to be dug up and new concrete laid. The original idea was to polish the concrete floor, but the expense would need to be delayed.
Then the walls were cleaned and all the holes filled in. And as a further idea team Yeah Can suggested some bamboo for the ceiling and the two side walls. For the main wall a photo collage is planned showing the Hope Center artisans and seamstresses working, pictures of products and celebrations of life.
So far work is going along nicely. If you have a few Dollars spare, do contribute to the new shop campaign by clicking here and your reward will be a wonderful eBook with images of Vietnam. You will want to pack your bags and visit when you look at those photos.
