Grantley Hall

It is great to be asked to get my brushes out and to apply some of the finishing touches to the prestigious hotel Grantley Hall. These include hand-painted signs in a traditional script style on doors throughout the hotel shown below:

Grantley Hall

Recently I was instructed to complete some advertising boards for Grantley Hall a stately home outside Ripon in North Yorkshire. The Hall was previously owned by the council and used for training seminars and educational events. It is now undergoing a total renovation and redevelopment into a hotel and events venue. The renovation is sympathetic to the building and helps to keep a beautiful historic building alive.  
It is great to be involved in all aspects of advertising and branding, being able to use a variety of sign making skills in both vinyl and traditional signwriting, also to be involved in new ventures at their inception to completion.

Looking back on 2017

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

North Yorkshire Dales National Park

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!
