Made by Britain Launch - Proud to use the new 'Made In Britain' logo

A standard marque for Made in Britain products has been launched with backing from UK manufacturers and MPs.


A panel of industry experts chose this new design after research commissioned by Stoves (the British Manufacturer of Aga) that many Brits were simply out of touch with what was British made and what wasn’t.


36% of people said they buy British whenever they can and more than a third of people said they would do so more often if it was easier to identify authentic, ‘Made in Britain’ products.*


More than 55% of people polled thought it was good to buy British made products because it supported UK manufacturing and jobs.*


The Fashion Trust – based in Sussex is pleased to be associated with this campaign and to be able to use this new logo on their fashion designed manufacturing.


“ I’m delighted that The Fashion Trust in Sussex, can support this campaign for promoting British fashion manufacturing, particularly with the Olympics less than a year away and so many global businesses and consumers  observing the UK”  … stated Mike Weatherley MP and Trustee.


Request your logo from Stoves today to use on your 100% British manufactured products at http://www.stoves.co.uk/Made-in-Britain/

Made By Britain Launch - About the prints designed

Julius used photography images by Simon Munn featuring previous regional Olympiads, such as Steve Ovett, digitally enhanced into an exciting print which is  suitable for use in large printing format especially for commercial occasions. 

A second and very detailed image was produced featuring the Royal Pavilion, Brighton, clearly fantastic for regional tourism use, and his third print features lifebuoys, again very appropriate for being a seaside City resort, which features the colour palette of the Olympics and fantastic to print onto natural fabrics.  

This third print has been chosen to be used for the ‘Made By Brighton & Hove’ and  ‘Made By Sussex’ manufacturing campaign  that is commencing alongside the ‘Made By Britain’ UK campaign to showcase  locally produced products in the South Coast region.

This project has shown Julius’s complete diversity and expertise as one of top regions young print designers.  

Julius Stated … 

“ I was delighted to be offered this project through The Fashion Trust and to be able to represent Sussex through print and design. Inspiration has been taken from local Olympic talent and represents the area as a forerunner in Olympic traditions”… 

 
Working with traditional and digital print media, I have worked with photographic imagery to create print work for fashion and textiles across the board”…
