a history of the studio pub sign

Brewery Artists pub sign studio

The pub signs are a complete PDF listing of all 312 signs held in by ArtDesign in digital format. Scanned from Ektachrome 35mm transparencies of original pub/inn signs.

The majority of the pub signs were produced at Whitbread Artists Department and Brewery Artists between 1971 and 1988.

A minority were commissioned by Signcraft Ltd between 1990 and 2000 on a freelance basis. Some were hand painted, others were scanned from smaller commissioned artworks and applied in vinyl to the sign.

All the pub signs in the database were painted by Nick Robertson. Click DATA BASE button for all pub sign listings.
