Great Wester Railway Commemorative Timeline

Home worked in partnership with GWR to deliver the internal communications for their rebrand in 2015. To celebrate the milestone I was asked to produce a timeline of trains and carriages that have appeared on the line since it's creation in 1833. This involved weeks of research and the meticulous studying of all sorts of wonderful machines. We produced a limited run of 100 to be given out after the launch, with number 10 going to the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street.

We used a process called foil blocking which involves etching the design onto a copper block and then stamping it down onto paper with a thin layer of heated foil laid over it. In this case we used a silver foil which produced a stunning result that caught the light beautifully.
