London Traditional sign writer Nick Garrett TESTIMONIALS

London sign writer Nick Garrett



“Nick’s work is simply stunning. He was able to take our brief and bring it to life with his creativity and expertise.

He knew exactly what we wanted to achieve. The result – a distressed and beautiful piece of handcrafted art/signage on the column and bulkhead at our new Knightsbridge Store. His ability to layer paint to give an aged look was simply superb along with his hand drawn typography and flourishes. Nick is a great guy to work with and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”

Nick Garrett worked with us for many years, about ten years ago; working closely with Tricia Guild and myself in producing specially painted antique furniture. Nick was provided with specific fabric swatches and left to his own devices in producing pieces which worked perfectly to the colour briefs. His ability to produce work that was in perfect compatibility to our textile colours and the ‘look’ of the collection was inspiring and sold very well.

Nick therefore had great creative input into the look of the furniture at the time of our London Store and very much involved in the creative process.

Mark Homewood, Director of Creative Development, Designers Guild UK

“It was great to bump into Nick again recently..

Nick could always be relied upon to come up with original and often stunning designs for pictorials and had a real feel for the genre. He worked hard and did a lot of work for myself and my colleagues dealing with Allied Breweries regional re-branding. His work was always outstanding. Happy memories!”

A little birdie wrote me – Nick Garrett Traditional signwriter Central London

Sign Motif in the moment Notting hill Nick Garrett signwriter west end central London

Cat and bird painted motif at Strutt and Parker Kensington Church Street London

Part of a mural spread across 103 Kensington Church Street.  The signwriting – mural work took 3 days to complete and featured soft tonal outlined characters with tree motif and some cat and bird theatrics.

Easy on the eye and very popular with the locals.

Pleasure working with Reflect Construction and partners of Strutt and Parker especially the lovely Charlotte.

Born and bred in London, I am a traditional sign writer, gilder and maker with over 30 years experience. Most of my work is in central London but I also have my family and product development studio in Italy where I develop glass gilding and various specialist products – hence the Italian mobile number.

Fantastic signwriting made by hand in the true craftsmanship tradition…

For the past 15 years I have been delivering powerful brand design.

That work looks great, Thank you. I’ve noted your other areas of expertise and I’m sure that we’ll work together in the future. Andrew Catterall, Reflect Construction UK

The execution is superb… it’s very rare to see someone love what they do… Phil Monk, Head Curator, Tate Modern, London

Quality, and service are the two strengths I guarantee. But most of all I think it is always genuine creative passion that will speak volumes for your business sign acquisition.
