The Yard, based at the Cardiff Bar Quarter is another Brains Brewery owned venue.
Planning of the project began in the fall of 2010 and ran through till late February of 2011 (including finishing touches). The re-vamp was a much needed move in order to gain a majority share of passing trade, particularly on match days, where the brewery quarter had been lacking population in comparison to other bars based on Mill Lane. I had joined later on in the project after returning to my second year of university and was given the task of designing the wallpaper for the toilets after being briefed by Tim. Instead of a traditional elegant wallpaper, Tim opted to run with a design that had been in its early stages of design whilst at The Dairy. This was a wallpaper made up of a collage of female bums, with a worn newspaper effect.
Over five-hundred images of bums were sourced, ran through Illustrator, then pieced together in Photoshop before being sent to print onto a thick gauged wallpaper.
