Hyde Indoor Market Artwork

Last year, myself and fellow artist Richard Dawson were commissioned by Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC) to create some artwork for Hyde Indoor Market.  The aim of the commission was to increase knowledge and awareness of the market – we worked with the market tenants to come up with a design and concept and worked with local community groups to produce some of the artwork.

The final design is a sign that says ‘Hyde Indoor Market’, with each individual 3D letter depicting something sold within the market.  The letters are a mixture of box frames containing various items, are clad in objects or have graphics applied to their surface.

This is the letter N, which depicts the ladies wear, menswear, footwear and jewellery stalls with an illustration of a wardrobe and the items contained within.  The images show the first pencil drawing of the wardrobe and the inked-in versions and then the final one, which was scanned in, cleaned up in Photoshop and then colour rendered in Illustrator.  The final letter has a wood effect finish on the sides, with a printed vinyl applied to the front with the illustration on.
