Love the typography on this shop front.
ESW was founded in December 2013, inspired by our shared passion for vintage sign art and typography, classic materials and techniques from an age when things were built to last.
All our pieces are designed, built and finished by us, in our Surrey workshop. We believe that attention to detail and historic touches make the difference, whether it’s a small neon sign for a home barbeque area or a giant lighting feature for a west end store.
We welcome commissioned work, so please get in touch to talk about your project.

Communication with your customers is vitally important, especially telling them when your open and closed and if you have popped out.
There are so many ways to graphically communicate with customers most retailers either use a decal/ window sticker, or printed graphics. But some just stick a bit of handwritten paper in the window which if not beautifully written can look messy and give an uncared for appearance to the store.
I’m making it one of my missions to encourage retailers to do this in a professional way that shows your customers you care and have great ideas.
So here are a selection of signs I have seen recently that hopefully will inspire you to do something similar.
I’ll keep updating the photos as I find new ideas.
