New and historic buildings case study; Old Spitalfields Market signwriting


The Brief


To signwrite and gild in 23.5 carat gold leaf shopfront signwork for more than 30 new shopfronts within the listed buildings at Old Spitalfields Market for The Ballymore Group, adhering to strict English Heritage and Consulting Architects Julian Harrap guidelines.

What did we do?

We submitted samples of our work for approval and fixed prices. We created full size drawings of fascia and projecting signs using both the special Market typeface and tenants’ own logos and typefaces, gaining approval where appropriate. We carried out signwriting both on site and in our workshops fitting in to the main contractors deadlines for shops being completed.

The Client Quote

Dave Clark, Old Spitalfields Market site manager, The Ballymore Group
