One Way of Describing Ourselves

We try to represent everything that a British Company should be and as a nation has built it's reputation upon. These qualities are innovation, quality and reliability. We use the same motto as the press industry "Die for the Deadline". The guy constructing this website is a long time employee of "streetwiseUK" and holds the record for non-stop signwriting and mural painting which stands at 78 hours without sleep or rest, followed by a 12 hour bender, which he felt was justified and well deserved, 24 hours sleep then ensued. (To view an example of work done during this period click here). The quality of work did not deteriorate at any point during this marathon session and the deadline was met with four hours to spare, however the clients were starting to panic. Inexplicable in our view, for we have never failed to deliver the job on time. At this point you should here a rousing version of 'Rule Britannia', but it's probablsy not a good idea and then there's bandwidth...

And Another Way of Describing Ourselves

All of the above is true with this exception. We are really a disparate group of individuals all uniquely talented who share a principle which is : To do their very best to create the best finished thing (whatever it is) that is possible within their own and their combined ability.

Not necessarily in any order other than what comes out of the writers head is most of the stuff that we do:

We write copy, direct mail, manuals, instruction sheets that you can understand, we have a great capacity for switching to objectivity from a state of deep subjectivity, this helps in writing instructions to guide the layman.

We write jingles, background and incidental music and if we can't do it, we know someone who can, we sing, we were on 'Stars In Your Eyes' and did quite well, but choreography is weak point.

We are well organised and have people who can organise others.

We translate into most European languages, with a fondness for any Celtic tongue particularly Welsh.

We produce interactive multimedia cd's, animation in 2 or 3 dimensions, and the fourth when it arrives.

Really nice 3d images of the product real or imagined that you need to promote or show a client. (If your'e in the trade, we can wrap your 2d design around youre desired 3d shape) and put 10 of them on a shelf.

Yet Another Way of Describing Ourselves

Established in 1972 as letterpress printers, decorative artists and stained glass window makers, before relocating to Wales in 1975, we received a commendation from the Design Council for work done for the Holman Kelly Paper Group, design work was all done in lead type and produced on an 1894 Arab Platen.

Following the move to Wales we concentrated on traditional signwriting, general signmaking, exhibition displays and decorative art.

Computers had a big impact on the sign trade in the 80's and they were incorporated into our day to day work producing self adhesive lettering, which is a blessed relief to those who have signwritten the many sides of a van with a sable brush.

The fast multiplicity of options offered by computer aided design were very enticing and we followed our curiosity for ten years or so embracing modern technology with the discerning eye of a traditional craftsman and trying combine these perspectives. Computers are a fantastic tool but that's all they are, you need a good machine operator, and that's what we are.
