I was approched by world renowned horticulturalist David Austin Roses to create a new signage system for their garden centre in Shropshire. The signage needed to customers navigate between the English Rose varieties. I used an engraved style illustration with overlays of pantone colours to help identify plants by colour. The final design was then applied to outdoor banners.
In the early 1950s David Austin set out to create a more beautiful rose. Sixty years on, this simple objective remains. David Austin has gone on to breed a collection of roses renowned across the world. All David Austin roses have a collective style and reflect one man’s vision. All have beautiful blooms and in most cases wonderful fragrance held on graceful attractive shrubs. A garden of these outstanding roses is hard to beat for sheer exuberance of flower and fragrance.
