Stand Off Lettering Signage at River Cottage Winchester


The River Cottage Kitchen & Deli is set in the wonderful Abbey Mill Gardens near the city centre. There are three River Cottage Kitchens across the South West, in Axminster, Bristol and the most recent addition of Winchester. 


We've been fortunate enough to work with the well-renowned River Cottage on various projects over the past 10 years. From the main signage at their HQ in Axminster to recently updating the stand-off lettering at their Axminster canteen, we've got a fantastic understanding of their brand and the sort of things they look for in a project. This time we were tasked with updating the external signage at the Wichester stores inline with their Axminster stores. 


Following on from the rebranding of River Cottage Canteen to Kitchen in Axminster, we were tasked to complete the same job in Winchester. The client specified heights of the lettering required so that we did not need to travel to Winchester survey the sign. Our graphic design team produced digital proofs in conjunction with what was on the building for client approval.

We removed the lettering for canteen and replaced with the word kitchen to be on brand. 

The lettering was cut from a Steel Faced External ACM, which provides a cost-effective solution to using stainless steel. The letters were cut on our flatbed router and we printed the template to be used for fixing. By using stand off lettering it'll add depth to signs giving a striking effect to any background. Letter signs can also be illuminated through various methods, meaning your business will stand out head and shoulders above competitors 

Signs were then installed by Creative Solutions, with the old signs being removed and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. We aim to always leave any off-site installations as we find it, whilst causing as minimal disruption possible for the client whilst we go about our work.  

The result? A set of modern, on-brand signs which were in keeping with the updated River Cottage branding across all sites.
