TRADITIONAL SIGNWRITER NICK GARRETT NEW VIDEO – TED BAKER VINTAGE MURAL
London professional sign-writer Nick Garrett NGS, since 1981
You can’t paint a perfect letter without being totally committed to the brush and the message…
Signs can become beautiful things in the right hands – they convey a particular story about your business: all my signs are special. I cherish them because I understand how important they are.
My first hand painted sign commission was when I was 16, 1975, a lovely restoration job of an antique market sign and as soon as I started sketching up the Roman capitals I knew I had found something special: the flow of the paint – my grandfather Francis Baker a renowned letter carver showed me my errors and I learnt as I went along.
And really that passion has continued unabated through to today – I hope you enjoy sharing it.
