Richmond company wins national award for vehicle graphics

The winning design.

A Richmond sign making company has won a national award after several years of just missing out.

After repeatedly being commended at previous British Sign Awards competitions, Eyecatching Signs finally scooped a top prize at the 2020 event, winning the vehicle graphics of the year award.

Owner Steve Smith said they received their first highly commended runner up award doe their first entry in 2015.

“Since then we have entered every year, never really expecting anything to come of it.

“Some of the entries are signs valued at tens of thousands of pounds by companies massively more scaled than our little one.

“We had got to the point where we were thinking we were always going to be the bridesmaid and never the bride.

“Once again we entered this year and much to our surprise we won.”

The company won the award for their work on a design for Progressive Martial Arts, with a design for Mocha Chocolate just missing out on the shortlist.

The company was also highly commended for its NHS posters and stickers, which it did during the first lockdown with all profits going to help the fight against Covid-19.

Steve added: “Eyecatching Signs is only a small company and we are so grateful to the support and variety of work our customers have allowed us to be involved with this crazy year.

“Who knows, maybe this is the start of bigger things to come as we already have something special to enter in to next years competition.”
