R Weatherdon & Co supply the major hotel chains with furniture, stationery, appliances, crockery, glassware, in fact everything you might find in your hotel room! They print a very comprehensive supply catalogue to send out to their clients, and thought it would be nice to have a catchy front cover to make people sit up and take notice.
They wanted to portray a feeling of quality and reliability, and asked Red Pepper Graphics if we could create something with an Art Deco feel. They wanted to reflect the grandeur and quality of the Hotels from that era. They asked if we could create a sillhouette illustration of a bellboy holding out a welcoming hand. We also created a gold wallpaper background pattern and a parchment calling-card to add to the mood of the cover.
