Inspiring Cornwall.

We have recently enjoyed working on a marketing image for a North Cornwall client. This project has been an interesting medium through which to express our vision of Cornwall and it’s spirit.

“I have gained very great inspiration from the Cornish land and seascape, the horizontal line of the sea and the quality of light and colour which reminds me of the Mediterranean light and colour which so excites one’s sense of form; and first and last there is the human figure which in the country becomes a free and moving part of a greater whole. This relationship between figure and landscape is vitally important to me. I cannot feel it in a city.” Barbara Hepworth – Artist

For the perspectives, we have been inspired by the 1930’s Western Railway postcards, advertising the west country holiday destinations that invited people to use the railway to travel. They enhanced the beauty of those counties with a recognisable design approach.


“I have lived in Cornwall from the age of 4, so I have always been aware of the artistic heritage that the county has. I feel very proud to be able to connect to this. “ John Dyer – Artist

We strongly believe that Cornwall is full of richness, the landscapes are breathtaking and  inspiring. Cornwall is particular, it is not big – 80 miles long – but within it you can gain a truly diverse sense of places and we wanted to capture a little of that spirit in these images.

“Somehow the Cornwall of my childhood dreams and the Cornwall of stories is overlaid on the real place everywhere one looks; the sea is forever how it seems to the mind’s eye, a long-gone holiday as a tiny child. The scintillation of the light on the sea, a shout, the cry of gulls and the orange glow behind one’s eyelids. Even in the storm there is an archetypal connection to place, a deeply rooted sense of belonging to something that goes back into one’s self forever. This is what I respond to when I watch the waves; when I am at the heart of the nature of this place.” Laura Frances Martin – Artist & Performer.
