Nick Garrett – Typeface Design – making ideas work

Typeface Design – making ideas work

London sign writer Nick Garrett

making it real together

Logo design is a crucial skill for me as it focuses a host of useful typographic and creative skills: technical thinking and creativity combined.

Inspiration breeds success.

It is the difference between being a great sign-writer and a top sign pro.

Gill Sans is a tremendous English font based entirely on the classical structure of Roman serif.  Ingenious sans serif.

We are a clever lot…

Hope you like your hatchling NGS sign concept…

Parvin Fascia Beauchamp place – Nick Garrett signs

Wrote this fascia for court dressmaker Stewart Parvin in Beauchamp Place under some pressure… the fascia was heavily glossed and with the wettest April/May on record the paint was not bone dry!!

Hmmm.. hard work… but client happy and a great result I think you’ll agree.
