H. G. Wells 150th Anniversary Exhibition at The Lightbox in Woking, March 2016

 

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.

    Dear Neville
    I would like to frame a paper copy of the Wells in Woking poster. Do you know how I might acquire one? As a long time resident of Woking and with Wells for a surname, I think it would make for a good talking point in my dining room!

    • Hi Sally, Thank you for the interest. You have two options, there is an editioned silkscreen print signed by me on sale in the Lightbox. I do know they were down to their last few so could have sold out. The second option is the large poster (approx 1.5m tall) which will have all the website addresses etc on so may not be ideal. These may be available from Woking borough council. If the Lightbox have sold out please come back in o me as I could get a high quality digital print made for you. Please let me know how you get on. Regards Neville

    • Hi Sally,

      Just following up to see if you’re now sorted or whether I can help you with your poster?
      Please get in touch either way to confirm.
      Regards Neville
