A timeless project incorporating the heritage from the Darling & Sons rich history as grain merchants. Our goal was to create a utilitarian display font which addressed the need for branding and way-finding for the restoration on the Darling House built in 1916. We worked closely with craftsman to fabricate raw metal signage, gold-leaf & sign-painted signage.
