Lake District Designs


My name is Johnny and I was born on the edge of the Lake District in West Cumbria in a small market town. I was taken out walking most weekends by my parents on the fells and around the lakes. Because I grew up here I never really appreciated its great beauty. It was only after I returned from university, started working in London that I came to realise what a special place it is. I now walk everyday if I can!

Lake District print


My designs are in a vintage style and take there inspiration in part from the old railway posters from the 1920’s and 30’s – before Britain’s railways were nationalised. The big four railway companies (London and North Eastern; London, Midlands and Scottish; Southern; and the Great Western) competed fiercely for custom using the best commercial and non-commercial artists of the day.

Vintage hikers


All my designs are produced on a Apple Mac and are largely created using Adobe illustrator. Colours are boosted in other applications to give a slightly saturated look. This I’ve found evokes a similar feel to the vintage posters. I’m happy to adapt my designs to create bespoke invites and posters.

I also provide Graphic and Digital design services for businesses large and small. Some of my work can be found at Please get in touch if you have an idea or project you are looking to develop.
