Organised by One Mitcham and funded by the Mayor’s Outer London Fund and Merton Council, Mitcham town centre was transformed into a romantic haven of hearts, flowers and cupcakes. A timetable of highlights included dancing, balloon twisting, facepainting and even free tea and cake! The events ran into the evening with dozens of jazzed up stalls to invite the local community to the event.
I had the honour of working with the Architects Studio Weave to decorate the market stalls by hand lettering romantic signs such as "Hello Sauce Pot (kitchenware)" and "Get Fruity (greengrocer). The day was an enjoyable event and I was able to have a chat with the stall holders about the project and what they thought of the revamped market. There was also a bit of spontaneous sign making on the day too which kept me busy.
