Looking back this last year, my most rewarding & significant work that I have produced was the boundary signs for the National Parks. These signs are to be placed on the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales & Westmorland National Parks in the North of England.
They can be seen on the border of each county.
These signs have been produced in aluminium from a mould, cast as they would have been 150 years ago. They will stand all weathers & will still look attractive in many years to come.
It's a real pleasure working on such a project & the thought that one day it might inspire one of my grandchildren to become involved in traditional sign writing
I've been recently asked to renovate some signs for the North Yorkshire Dales National Park. I received them in a pretty poor state as can be seen from the image below but after a little TLC the finished sign looks great!
As it arrived.
Sandblasted down to its raw state.
This is the latest handpainted sign lettered by hand by my daughter Hattie - she is currently studying graphic design at Newcastle University
A single sided painted sign with a basket of fruit & veg needed for an allotment in York.
Traditional hand-painted signs are becoming very popular as they stand out from the more contemporary methods and offer a more warm and inviting feel. Give us a call to see what we can do for you.
Recently, I carried out sign work for the factory of a local successful cheese company, Shepherd's Purse.
These signs are made from exterior Marine Plywood with hardwood frames, painted with top quality paint , 6 coats for added protection to offer that quality look
I digitally printed the laminated logo & use vinyl lettering as the customer required
These should last many year in all weather conditions
I have another happy customer !
North Yorkshire County Council has recently purchased a new "Supermobile" library vehicle to replace the original vehicle which was launched in 2004. This new vehicle will provide an improved resource for the community, with both traditional library stock and a satellite enabled connection to public computers available at each of the locations which is visits. The competition was held for young people to submit their designs and we were asked to reproduce their ideas digitally onto the vehicle. These were digitally printed and laminated, also including vinyl lettering. The finished look was individual, vibrant and colourful allowing the children's ideas to come to life.
