Lancashire Tea

Bespoke map for a popular tea brand

In 2017 I was approached by Preston based design agency Wash Design to help them with a rebrand for Lancashire Tea, a local business who’ve spent years finessing their recipe for the perfect cuppa.

My job was to create a modern design that would pop on the supermarket shelves while being as classically Lancastrian as potted shrimp.

Over time, myself and the Lancashire Tea team worked together to create a design that represented Lancashire’s famous faces and its many iconic landmarks, from Eric Morecambe frollicking on Morcambe beach to the charming (if equally annoying) Blackpool seagulls. It wasn’t a simple process – the design took several attempts to perfect as the packaging dimensions were strict – but it was all worth it when I started receiving messages from friends who’d seen my work on the Tesco shelves.

To this day this artwork remains one of my most popular pieces of work, and I couldn’t be happier to be associated with the north’s best brew.
