Here’s a large village sign we recently produced for Allington, Lincolnshire. The parish council ran a competition to design a sign for the village, and the winning image was sent to us in sketch form. The final piece is pretty true to the original drawing – I made a couple of alterations to add strength in a few places, and also altered the perspective of the well to suit the scene better, but other than that is very much as it was. The design includes various well known local sights such as the old salt well and manor house. The path and walker depicted represents the Viking way, which used to run through the village, and the plant in the foreground is a Teasel, a large thistle that is plentiful in the area. Is great to see a design go from a rough sketch on a piece of paper all the way through to a finished sign like this!
