Throwback Thursday – Newcastle’s Ligher Side of Dark

This creative project of yesterdays past was a very exciting one that should not be soon forgotten. Image Options produced the graphics and managed the fabrication and installation for this unique billboard which was located at the Gaslamp district in San Diego California.The concept of this piece was the vision of ad agency Vitro and artists Ellis Gallagher & Pablo Power.

The billboard graphics were printed on Avery adhesive back vinyl and mounted to Dibond panels. Once the panels were completed they were shipped to New York for street artists Ellis Gallagher & Pablo Power to perform their magic. 3,000 real Newcastle Brown Ale bottle caps were strategically placed, bent, stacked and arranged to form a cool face and arm reaching for a glass of the Newcastle.

The panels were then shipped back to San Diego, California where Image Options completed the installation of this amazing billboard of yesterdays past.
