The Telegraph

At Omega we often collaborate with architects and designers to ensure that we get the very best results for our clients.

Working with designers Simple Simon part of the brief from Fullers was to create a reverse decorated glass fascia to create a striking signage that reflected the stylish and unique nature of the pub.

The answer is the technical skill of sign writing. It provides the answer to bring the depth of light and shadow required to bring the logo to life. Adding gold leaf gilding to the blue sign written lettering onto the glass created the reflection and sparkle unique to this sign. Projection lighting added  the final effect.

Traditional sign writing skills

Sign making has changed so much over the past 15 years.  The traditional processes of sign writing and gold leaf work can not be rushed. Skilled sign writers carefully chalk out and stencil up the design. In addition special paints are then applied by sign writers with delicate brushes by hand. It takes real attention to detail by time served craftsmen.

Managing Director, Duncan Chapman said. “  For instance of all the processes in the factory the one that fascinates all our customers during their visits is the Gold Leaf area. Customers are amazed at the care and attention to detail. In conclusion many of our competitors have let these old skills die out so our customers think it’s great to see this work in action!”
