Design – The Making of John Mayer’s ‘Born & Raised’ Artwork


One of Dock Street Signs’ favourite videos! Featuring the work of David A. Smith, this film captures the ‘Behind The Scenes’ creation of the ‘Born & Raised’ and ‘Queen of California’ artwork, as well as 2 unique reverse glass panels, hand-crafted in England.

David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.


Signage for KMRE

We were recently invited to a brand new housing development in Brierley, South Yorkshire. We were tasked with designing and making signage which would promote the development from the roadside and have clear signage within the development.
