Success at the London Coffee Festival 2016

The London Coffee Festival is an annual celebration of all that is coffee, from the finest of beans to the most luxurious of coffee related gadgetry!

Our nation seems to have a growning obsession with the stuff and you may (or may not) be surprised to learn that we now have a UK Coffee week – for which the London Coffee Festival is the offical launch event.

Bearing this in mind, the team at Wicked Coatings HQ were interested to see what kind of things could be done to make a coffee machine, cooler than cool. We decided to work in conjunction with a top manufacturer of Italian espresso making equipment to produce a one of a kind machine to be displayed at this years festival.

With 30,488 visitors attending the show, we were keen for the coffee machine to really make an impact. Afterall, considering the number of people who enjoy a morning coffee, the aesthetics of the machinery that makes it should only add to the whole experience?

Following lengthy discussion, our hydrographics crack team in Poole came up with an incredible design that not only stole the show but attracted a crowd of coffee fanastics – desperate for some selfie action with the unique machine!

The final effect was created by using a pearl white base with sticker bomb water transfer printing. Our client was delighted with the customisation and the attention that it generated at the festival. Here’s what they had to say:

“We thought you would like to see some pictures of the machine that you customised the panels for. There is no question that the machine was the most pictured machine at the London Coffee Festival.

We went to the show on Saturday and there was a constant line of people just taking pictures and/or posing by the machine. We really loved the quality of the work done and appreciate that you pulled out all of the stops to make this happen in such tight time frames. I’m sure this will be leading to further work and new customisation ideas!”
