School com­pe­ti­tion is a big draw for firm’s 25th birth­day

Rutherglen Reformer - - What's On -

A Ruther­glen firm is mark­ing its 25th an­niver­sary by of­fer­ing one lucky pri­mary school the chance to see its art­work trans­formed into a full scale wall mu­ral.

Es­tab­lished in Oc­to­ber 1989, El­e­va­tion De­sign is a lo­cal business spe­cial­is­ing in be­spoke exhibitions, set de­sign and build, high qual­ity shop-fit­ting and com­mer­cial join­ery man­u­fac­tur­ing.

To recog­nise its spe­cial an­niver­sary the Ruther­glen-based company is of­fer­ing pri­mary schools in the area the chance to brighten up an assem­bly or gym hall with art­work cre­ated by its pupils.

Jim Pot­ter, founder and di­rec­tor at El­e­va­tion De­sign, said:“The team at El­e­va­tion De­sign wanted to mark this im­por­tant mile­stone by do­ing some­thing spe­cial.

“We de­cided the best way to do this would be to give some­thing back into the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“The wall mu­ral is not only a great way to showcase lo­cal tal­ent it will also bring a new lease of life into a room.

“We look for­ward to see­ing the art­work and would en­cour­age all schools in the area to get in­volved.”

The art­work can be de­signed by an in­di­vid­ual, group or class and the win­ning poster will be trans­formed into wall art for ei­ther a school assem­bly or gym hall.

Jim added:“We don’t want to limit the cre­ativ­ity of the pupils; there­fore our only con­di­tion re­gard­ing the de­sign of the poster is it must be fun and colour­ful.”

The win­ning art­work will be elec­tron­i­cally rescaled and pro­duced onto vinyl.

Jim and his team will then ap­ply the win­ning art­work onto the school’s cho­sen wall.

In ad­di­tion to the wall art, El­e­va­tion De­sign is also of­fer­ing a run­ner-up prize of two large PVC ban­ners.

Only pri­mary schools in Ruther­glen are el­i­gi­ble to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion.

The art­work should be on pa­per no big­ger than A3 and can be de­signed by a pupil, class or school.

Art­work should be sent to: Jim Pot­ter, El­e­va­tion De­sign, Unit 6, 50 Cath­cart Rd, Ruther­glen, Glas­gow, G73 2QZ.

All art­work must be en­tered by no later than Fri­day, Novem­ber 28.

De­signs on suc­cess Kenny Meikle, Matt Black, Jim Pot­ter, Davie Le Drew and Sharon Fair­ley at El­e­va­tion De­sign in Ruther­glen, which is mark­ing its 25th birth­day this year
