High scorer from Onward Display

London-based Onward Display used Mactac materials supplied by ADS for this high-profile exterior graphics promotion using the 2014 FIFA World Cup competition in Brazil as its central theme. Onward’s design and operations director Owen Jackson said: “The graphics installed at our main Margaret Street store gave us the opportunity to use the eco-solvent-printable Mactac WW100 and UV-printable JT5817PUV One-Way Vision media to wrap the exterior of the building with a single cohesive design. The layout of the frontage allowed the use of WW100 to wrap the painted and tiled surfaces and associated brickwork and the perforated One-Way Vision media for glazed areas. There was also a full direct-to-media printed (CMYK + White) eight by four feet OSB board mounted to the wall.”
