The Result

Luminor

By Ged Palmer

In the six weeks it’s taken us to brew this beer, creative sign writer Ged Palmer has designed a sign for our pop-up Make Time For It bar. We have used the wild Sussex hop to create a zesty, London style Pale Ale, a beer style that has recently undergone a revival, similar to Ged’s traditional signwriting craft. #MTFILondon

CRAFTED BY MEANTIME IN SIX WEEKS

With over twelve years' experience of working with letterforms, Ged offers typography, calligraphy, lettering and sign painting to discerning clients in the UK and abroad. His work has been recognised by the International Society of Typographic Designers, the Type Directors Club and various publications worldwide. This year Ged is relaunching The Luminor Sign Co, a London sign shop which closed its doors in 1938, as the face of his lettering and sign painting business.
