National Trust

Nineteen Fifties Tea Room Posters

I was asked to create a series of posters for Melford Hall to accompany a 1950's themed tearoom. I took inspiration from the support of the  National Trust's volunteers  to design images with the look and feel of posters that might have been sitting in the attic for seventy years. 
I referenced various elements including trade adverts, book covers and Festival Of Britain graphics and worked with a thin, cheap paper stained with inks and burnished with finger tips.
