A sneak preview of what's expected Daddy’s World (who brought you Daddy Long Legs Hotel and the Grand Daddy Hotel and Airstream Penthouse Trailer Park in Cape Town’s Long Street) is bringing some oomph to Elgin in the form of the Old Mac Daddy Luxury Trailer Park due to open in July 2010. Positioned on a pine-slope in the famous fruit-growing Elgin valley, the site consists of twelve vintage Airstream suites and a luxury cottage, Daddy’s Villa, with a central communal facility for meals, meetings, events and leisure activities – as well as lots of fresh air, outdoor spaces, a pool, dams and a kid’s play area. And its all just one hour from Cape Town.
Daddy Bloom Flower Show Call for entries Cape Town’s creative community is being called to enter the first ever , taking place in the Airstream Penthouse Trailer Park on the roof of The Grand Daddy Hotel from the 8th to the 11th of October 2009. Instead of using natures blooms, designers, artists, ceramists, origami experts and textile designers are being encouraged to submit ideas for floral fantasies made from non floral materials - paper to porcelain, wool to wire and any medium in between. This fun project for Cape Town artists have extended the date for submissions to Friday the 11 September 2009. You now have 3 weeks to submit your descriptions/designs and a sample of your work.

Room 13 Design won the pitch for the Corporate ID/ brochure/ signage design for the new Grand Daddy Hotel - part of the Daddy Long Legs group. In 2006 and 2007, Spier’s Annual Reports amounted to over 90 sheets of paper per report, per year. Despite being printed on doubled-sided A4 pages, the 1000 reports printed amounted to 90 000 printed sheets of paper per year; a demand on the environment that greatly troubled the eco-sensitive company. Spier challenged Room 13 to find a way to present an online version of the report that was still accessible and informative.The technical creation of the Annual Report was done by Hellocomputer who took a Bronze for their work at the recent 2008 Loerie Awards.
