Allen Signs' MD David Allen says working on the ArtBox project for designers like Giles Deacon gave his staff 'a great sense of pride'
Ten designers have entrusted their artistic vision to Lincolnshire-based sign-maker Allen Signs as part of BT's ArtBox initiative in aid of ChildLine. The vehicle livery specialist wrapped fiberglass replicas of classic red telephone boxes with vinyl printed on its new HP Designjet L26500 with latex inks.
Allen Signs, which celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, was initially appointed to print and apply the design of internationally renowned fashion designer Giles Deacon, featuring stylised fashion illustrations. Following this, the company was asked to wrap a further nine boxes, including those of British designer Julien Macdonald and cartoonist Steven Appleby.
Marking the 25th anniversary of ChildLine, the unique telephone boxes are on display across London until July 16th, after which they will be auctioned off at the National Portrait Gallery to raise money for the charity.
"We’re delighted to be working for such well known clients and on a project of this magnitude for obvious reasons; however, the fact that the proceeds from the sale of the boxes will raise vital funds for such a worthwhile cause makes it even more rewarding," comments Allen Signs managing director David Allen.
