Spring 2012 saw the opening of a new venue on Bristol's Gloucester Road, a lively neighbourhood full of independent shops and cafés. 'The Galli' was set to take over from the long-established venue 'The Prom' and wanted a solid identity to let the locals know they were shaking things up.
The name 'Gallimaufry' comes from the French, meaning 'a mix or medley' and spoke of their ethos 'to make the best of what's at hand'. With home-cooked food, heaps of reclaimed furniture and a bar full of 'Curios' objects the identity was composed of various letterforms, hand-crafted in a traditional style.
With just two days to transform the venue, Ged worked with local sign-painter extrodinaire James Cooper (www.dappersigns.co.uk) to create the huge 35' sign. The Gallimaufry had officially arrived.
