Wimbledon

Wimbledon is nearly upon us and to help you follow this year’s championships we have a fantastic wall planner to give away. The wall planners will be hot off the press as soon as the first round draw is made, to get one enter your details here. The first Wimbledon tournament (mens singles) was played in 1877 and won by Spencer Gore making it the oldest tennis tournament in the world and the only one of the grand slams to still be played on grass.

New technology comes to Leyland

This month we have news on the arrival of our latest press and the winner of January’s #TwitterCritter competition. Also, whilst you were making all those New Year resolutions to create the ‘new you’ did you think of maybe checking your brand in for a makeover? When thinking of your brand, why not take a leaf out of Bowies book, he constantly reinvented himself creating talking points and engaging peoples interest. Below, we feature the font from the cover of Heathen which caused a friendly dispute within our design team recently.


What can we do for you?

We can create your identity from scratch, working with you to generate marketing that reflects your corporate personality. Creating a unique impression of how you do business.


Heathen Album Cover
Priori Font

This was the prototype of ‘Priori’ a new font specifically designed by Jonathan Barnbrook for Bowies album Heathen.

In fact this is the only time this version of the font appeared as it was still a work in progress.

Refreshing branding is a cost effective way of getting it looked at.

AI Comes to Leyland

For the last ten days we have been installing our new press. Whilst it may not actually be artificial intelligence on a par with Stephen Spielberg’s vision, the Heidelberg 75 measures its own performance and ensures stunningly consistent high quality every sheet. The press is calibrated to international standards for colour and operates only within this gamut. Giving faster, sharper and brighter results every time.


January’s Competition Winner

January’s winner of the#TwitterCritter competition was Claire Kempster from Blackpool. Claire correctly identified Bambi as the answer and she was randomly chosen from the correct answers to become our winner. Claire received £40.00 of love to shop vouchers, a framed print of the #TwitterCritter, two books from the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and one of our gorgeous 40 year anniversary notebooks. Thank you to everyone that entered and supported the LWT and better luck next month.
