The one that got away!

Our mocked-up designs for the ‘Dressing the Porte Cocheres’ open submission in Milton Keynes. Sadly, not to be, but a very interesting project, nonetheless.

We chose the ideas of dreams and hopes to link various themes and reflect the aspirations of a young city like Milton Keynes. The wishing star and the heart-shaped cloud are symbols intended to convey this – aim for the sky, head in the clouds, reach for the stars, follow your heart –  and the sky, depicted both as day and night, was intended to convey creative dreaming, as well as sporting dreams and ambitions. The whole thing was designed to be reproduced using a limted number of stencils.

Christmas Post

For those of you who have received our hand-made, hand-printed cards in the past, we regret to say that, for reasons beyond our control, you won’t be receiving one this year.

To ease the pain, here’s one of our favourites from previous years. Best wishes from John & Irma
