For Adrian Paul (of *Highlander* fame), for his full immersion combat training and choreography event, “The Sword Experience”.

Custom Outdoor Sunbrella Covers

Damen-Titchner Pavilion cover in Sunbrella


Our instructions were:

Create a cover that could fasten without any auxiliary hanging hardware installed on their backyard pavilion. Sunbrella is a great fabric, rated for years of sun (obviously) and weather resistance. This Logan, Utah couple stores many items in the pavilion during winter and it’s a perennial treat for us to see their custom cover getting such great mileage and use.



Snug and enclosed for winter, protecting lots of stored items within.



The Pavilion cover in summer. A great spot for entertaining and hanging out.



Project notes, measurements and details.


Yep, the pieces were so large that we used the parking lot to lay some of them out!



Mark and Suzanne, using the plumb line to snap straight chalk lines…



Our basement on Pierpont Avenue got a LOT of use during this project. We set up extra tables to work with this big project.



Fastex hardware. Buckles with straps down each of the four corners of the pavilion cover.



Art Direction and Costuming: Punk’s Dead

Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2 (2016)

Our shops and personnel provided art department & costume services for director James Merendino’s sequel production to his cult classic SLC Punk.
Art Director/Associate Producer Hraefn Wulfson provided production design services including specialty prop and set design, plus sourcing and builds with the help of our teammate Russ Adams. Assistant Costume Designer Jennifer McGrew and her crew provided patternmaking, costume construction, tailoring, fittings and alterations for visiting designer Fiora Boes.
Crowdfunded in part through its Indiegogo campaign, Punk’s Dead demonstrates how effectively an already-loved commodity can be marketed to its fan base plus attract new audiences. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and was purchased for distribution. Live theatrical premieres around the U.S. were followed up by the film’s release in digital format where fans everywhere can purchase and view this sequel about the original film’s next generation.

Custom Fancy Food Exhibit: Apriori

Famous food purveyors Apriori needed a custom display to use at the conventions and fancy food shows they attend. Our production designer Hraefn Wulfson built this one to show off their lines of beautiful artisan chocolates and candy. The shelves are all adjustable and the display pieces hinge in, compressing to ship around the country and around the world. Custom signage: Michael Fitches.

McGrews Reimagined

Are we in Narnia now?

The McGrew Studios’ 2010 remodel began with a gutting of its entire storefront. This remarkable re-imagining of our meeting space by designer Hraefn Wulfson included unique custom fixtures made of wood, metals, fabrics and other materials by highly skilled artisans, creating a steampunk flavored fantasy room.

The technical skills, contributions and sheer labor of so many talented friends and clients converged in our new front parlour space. It is virtually a salon, where on any given day you might meet politicians, rock stars, producers, poets, professors and others who stop in to say hello.

We invite you in to say hello as well.
