Happy St. David’s Day…

…from Icon & Co’s prop makers!

March is finally here again so we’d like to wish all of you out there a very Happy St. David’s Day, from all of us here at Icon & Co (Wales!). Spring is most definitely within touching distance again. Featured here are some photos of the Newport ‘Super Dragons’, which were sculpted from polystyrene with a fibreglass covering by one of our talented sculptor / prop makers / all-round good bloke, Tim, for Newport City Council. The blank, multi-cast dragons were then distributed to selected city residents & artistically enhanced, for eventual public display!

London to Paris Window Display

Animated Window Display

Here is a movie (link below) of a window display, created by the shop display and prop makers of Icon & Co, which was produced to celebrate a London to Paris car rally and was placed in the shop window of one of the event’s sponsors, Alfred Dunhill.  Electric cars raced around stylised models of landmarks from London & Paris and a ‘cross channel’ boat rocked perpetually between the two.

How To Build a Castle Video

Film Sets & Scenic Artwork

This short animated film shows some of the construction of a full-size castle prop in our workshop in South Wales for a feature film set.

This was one of the sets & movie props created by the prop makers & scenic artists at Icon & Co for the TV feature-length production of ‘Skellig – The Owl Man’ (2009). Extra points if you manage to spot the dog.

Plaudits for Innovative Display Manufacturers!  (That’s us)

We like to think we’re innovative display manufacturers but, whether we are or not, we’re certainly proud of this Spring / Summer window display scheme, which brings Summer literally into stark relief.  Others apparently agree:
