Season of Mists

  Winter is coming and the shorter days and dampening conditions give us even less time to complete exterior work, so it is nice to have plenty of  inside jobs. Over the “summer” school break we had lots of regular honours boards to update. Sometimes refurbishment work enables us to recreate extremely individual hand lettering […]

Olympic Efforts- Going for Gold!

  The London Olympics are fast approaching and, although we do not expect to have a major role in the events, it is nice to be involved laterally. So it was a pleasure recently to add some typographical adornments to a tool box to be used by a farrier attending to some of the equestrian […]

Video and Jubilee

  I have painted various sections of text and quotations onto the (mainly white rendered) walls and these have often been linked to Shakespearean themes because of the link between The Globe Theatre in London and Gosden House School.

Inspiration from Others

We all take inspiration from earlier design and form. Looking at the Scarlet Lady on the previous entry inspired me to look at some of the wartime cockpit art. The most similar I found was “Heavenly Body”. Although this might not be original as the plane has been used for films. Many of the pictures […]

Upgrade equals backup

Being a traditional signwriter and interested in graphics of all kinds I enjoy looking at old signs, especially enamel advertising signs which you may find displayed at places like the Bluebell Railway (and these are also reproduced on the cover of the album by Eton John entitled  Tumbleweed Connection). See www.flickr.com/photos/31514768@N05/4398255131/ for a particularly relevent example. […]

It’s A Wonderful Life

See our video montage http://www.throwersigns.co.uk/movie.html It is always interesting to work on historic items such as the motorbike sidecar box and horse drawn milk float shown on my last blog and to work on classic vehicles or to recreate items from film or TV. Many years ago now I hand lettered a “Trotter” style 3 […]
