Being asked to design and illustrate ten new signs for the Gateway road boundaries leading into the City was a great honour and a privilege, particularly as they will be in place for many years to come. They have brought about much positive response and publicity, both for myself and the City. The rugby player sign at Sandygate roundabout, just off the M5, is a great favourite of many who drive past every day. The project has also led to further similar commissions for Exeter Science Park.
Arguably not quite as glamorous, but the images can also be seen on the sides of the City Refuse lorries. As they say, ‘All publicity is good publicity’.
Similarly, I was also commissioned to create a sign for the gateway to Magdalen Road, a unique and characterful street of independent shops, cafés and businesses. It was named in the Guardian as one of the ten coolest shopping streets in the world… best visit the street to make your own mind up.
