One of the first projects we ever worked on was a themed store interior for Liverpool-based fashion/sports retailer Dirty Sports. Later stores became more elaborate - one in the St.John's Centre had a spaceship hanging from the ceiling.

We’ve been working with ‘Dirty Sports’, a chain of independent athleisure stores on Merseyside, for 30 years. After creating themed stores in Liverpool city centre, Bootle, Runcorn and Huyton, the most recent is their flagship store in the city’s prestigious Liverpool 1 shopping district.

The adult clothing side of the store has a cleaner, sleeker ‘Tron-style’ sci-fi environment with custom-made, futuristic, shaped seating and shelving.
