Abbey Mill Business Center 

November 2014

The Abbey Mill (Mile End Mill) is a historically rich building located in Paisley. Previously part of the Coats and Clark thread Mill, Abbey Mill now houses a variety of businesses. 

We were commissioned to create a visual narrative of Paisley's interesting past and notable landmarks in connection to the Mill. This large wall illustration contained elements ranging from sprawling thread to a large scale walrus in relation to a local fountain. Spanning 24 squared feet, this has been our largest mural to date - we had our first taste of working on three storeys of scaffolding and experience of scaling up to this degree. 

The sketch we worked from is a prime example of how we work; from very rough concept sketches. We translate these to finished wall illustrations that flow and change as we progress.
