After many years, Kintyre will have a fresh ident on new and replaced roadsigns. BEAR Scotland, acting for Transport Scotland have commissioned a new version of the logo.
The artwork for the original version, which I prepared in the 1990’s, had been lost at the signmaker’s, so it was a great opportunity to ‘tidy up’ the detail and give more emphasis to the Viking longship allusion in the K of Kintyre. The new version is sharper than the old one, and the brighter colours should improve the branding of the Kintyre area within Argyll.
Here are images of the old logo alongside the new to give you a better impression. Alsi included are a couple of photographs of existing signage. I am told that signs at Campbeltown should be in place at the end of February/beginning of March 2015.
For more information about these signs, please see my artist website.
