Nicodin Cycles, Crest 26400, France
February 2019

Design and hand lettering
https://www.nicodincycles.fr/

Nico wanted an elegant Art Nouveau style logo for his bike shop 'Nicodin Cycles' and - due to local planning restrictions - it had to be painted directly on the façade. I made the two vertical blackboards for each side of the shop window so Nico could add his own information. I also change the message painted on the shop window whenever he's got a new idea.

Diane de Poytiers, 26150 Montélimar, France
March 2018

Reasearch and hand lettering
https://www.nougatdiane.com/fr/

Diane de Poytiers is one of the oldest nougat factories in Montelimar. They asked me to repaint a metal sign from the 1980s with the logo 'Le Délicieux'. I particularly enjoyed looking through the factory's visual archives to find the material.

Disc'orama, Grenoble 38000, France
November 2017

Design and hand lettering
FaceBook

Disc'orama is vinyl record shop in Grenoble. To keep costs to a minimum, I cleaned and repainted the existing metal shop front sign (4m long) and the perspex panels (which previously advertised insurance brokers) to create various decorative and informative panels.

Les Bouteilles, Valence 26000, France
September 2018


Design and hand lettering
http://www.lesbouteilles.fr

When Eric and Celine asked me to paint the name of their wine shop, it was imperative that it be done on wooden panels so that they could remove them each time they decided to change the colour of the shop front. Which is quite often.

La Brasserie des Trois Becs, 26400 Gigors & Lozeron, France
April 2016

Design, wooden lettering and electrical work
https://www.brasseriedestroisbecs.fr/

Manu from the Trois Becs brewery wanted a cosy-looking luminous sign to decorate his bar. I didn't want to use tungsten bulbs and spent a while experimenting with the colour of the LEDs to mellow them out. The cabochon bulbs create a nice, light-shard pattern on the letters faces too.

The Griffin B&B, Brighton, UK
October, 2019

Hand painted sign
https://www.griffinbrighton.co.uk

A double-faced hotel sign for my favourite B&B in Brighton. The original sign - not my design I should point out - had been up there for 15 years and was finally starting to show its age. This one was done by taking a photo of the original sign, redrawing the griffin on paper with pens, then painting it twice with a very small brush.
