Back at the end of March the Exhibition to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of H. G. Wells was held at The Lightbox in Woking. Woking Council are holding a series of ‘Wells in Woking’ events over the year. Details can be found here. H. G. Wells lived in Woking for only a short time but wrote his most famous book, ‘War of the Worlds’ in this period and used local landmarks throughout the book.
David Dragon and myself were the winners of the competition with my image being chosen to lead the whole season of events. You can see the event catalogue, just one of the elements using my image being held by the two ladies in the image below. My image can also be seen on pull-up banners at the Lightbox as well as poster campaigns in the local area, lamp post banners, a ten metre high banner in the centre of Woking and a whole host of digital applications and branding.
It’s great getting recognition for your work and to have it seen in the local area. Prints of both the winning designs were created in partnership with the Ochre Print Studio in Slyfield, near Guildford. They’re also made into a limited edition of 50 silkscreen prints, available to buy from the Lightbox in Woking for £80 unframed each. Profits go to help community programmes in the local area.
If you like the image please leave a comment and please get in touch if you’d like any event posters designed or know of anyone who does. If you refer me and it leads to business, I alway reward the referrer.
