John Rigby & Co., London Gunmakers
Bespoke Safari Tent 9m x 12m with highly customised features for exclusive exhibition use.
Esteemed London gunmakers, John Rigby & Co approached us in early 2021 looking for a highly bespoke tent to use at this year’s Game Fair at Ragley Hall.
The company was established in 1775 and has a long history worldwide within the shooting & hunting community. Their brand identity is centred around the core values of workmanship, quality & exclusivity ... so the bespoke safari tent we were to design had to reflect this.
Simon Barr, of Tweed Media, recalls the process ... ‘We contacted Bond early 2021 with a view to sourcing a large safari tent that we could use at The Game Fair. As a longstanding British producer of bespoke rifles, we were keen to create a bespoke tent that would reflect our brand and offer an opportunity to showcase our products and services in a unique manner.
Bond were the obvious choice and after initial conversations supplied us with a variety of CAD designs to suit the brief. The result was a beautifully crafted 9m x 12m custom designed safari tent.
The overall specification was highly bespoke with a variety of details not typically standard. The design team at Bond were thoroughly accommodating and always on hand to discuss even the smallest details resulting in a unique tented structure.
We were thrilled with the safari tent and the overall image we were able to achieve at The Game Fair. As a British manufacturer Bond provide a full design & supply service and were more than happy to work with us to create a bespoke structure with the quality and attention to detail that certainly sets them apart.’
It was a great pleasure working with the creative team at John Rigby and collaborating with their marketing agency. The level of detail required for this bespoke safari tent to fit the clients brief allowed our skilled team at Bond to really show off their skills ... even down to a custom stitched canvas logo! John Rigby & Co have already placed an order for 4 more bespoke safari tents, and we are looking forward to a long-term relationship.
