When your business is quiet you should paint the shop!’

I think it was the great Fergal Quinn who coined that phase. We normally are very busy in May, and 2015 didn’t disappoint thankfully, but we decided to paint the shop anyway. We have been in Font House for 10 years and it was due a face lift.

We have a lot of new equipment coming in June and building work is required so we took the opportunity to break out the brushes. I hope you can see that we really went for it. The outside of our very big grey box is now colourful. We feel it is more in keeping with the Creative Hub we wanted Font House to be when it was built back in 2005. 10 years ago seems like a different age looking back on it now.

2005 was Pre Property Collapse. Pre Bank Meltdown. Pre Bitter Recession. Pre Huge Spike in Unemployment.  I hope our new look will match the improving mood of the times we face in  the next ten years.  The new Reception now showcases the sort of skills we can bring to any solution.  I hope it brings more people to visit us, it certainly will be easier for them to spot TPI.

They also say a picture paints a 1000 words so if I stick another picture below this blog is long enough already.
