Cheap as Chips

I was commissioned to design the front signage for the knitted fish and chip shop that was Hastings contribution to ‘Follow the Herring 2014’. The top section of this panel was created to honour Ernie ‘Oxo’ Richardson’s ‘Wonders of the Deep’  fish cart.  The signage is a knitted reproduction of the typography used on his famous cart. The bottom section of the panel is a comment on how expensive the meal of fish & chips has become. The prices quoted refer to the 1960s when there were still shillings, thruppence and sixpence coins.
