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 wheeler working from bits of paused video to check accuracy and for some large store windows recreated an impression of the Beverley Hills signs (using a still shot from Beverley Hills Cop), I do not believe any of these photos still exist. This Christmas it was nice to be able to take inspiration from one of the classic films to help to create a window display for our friends at Jason Charles Jewellery in Sunninghill

Cut out Window display for Christmas

We took the original movie title

It's A Wonderful Life movie original caption

And drew in the additional characters required to make suitable wording for Christmas.

 
It was important to keep the character of all of the original lettering. The client preferred not to use the script version of Christmas, so the Frank Capra section was ignored.

Wonderful Christmas Sunninghill

Christmas is also the time when we most think of playing games together, so we were pleased to be able to supply a new fascia in Godalming with this theme.

The Classical Game Shop, Godalming

Images were chosen, drawn or inserted to aid the theme.

Chess & Dice

 

Playing Cards
Scrabble and Snakes & Ladders

The first version included a “Trivial Pursuit” style of script for some of the main text, but the simpler Cable font (reminiscent of Monopoly) gave greater clarity. The bottom edge was contour cut to give greater depth and a sense of fun to the panel. The panels were surface mounted, whereas the contour cut “Wonderful Christmas” display was internally suspended by the customers.

You can see my design used on the website:-
