In the lead up to Christmas and the New Year, as Marketing Officer for the Museum of Liverpool I was beavering away to install a huge sign, seen here in the background facing the canal, in time for the staging of Transition: The People’s Celebration to flag up the new Museum of Liverpool to the imminent thousands at the Pier Head. More images can be seen in the Museum of Liverpool flickr group.

This task presented a few challenges, not least due to the cold snap, braved in sub zero temperatures by the painters and sign company who rapidly transformed the white hoarding line to a colourful dark blue and vivid cyan.

We produced a sign in the largest vinyl letters the space would accommodate, visible from both land and sea to visitors to the Pier Head but also passengers aboard the Mersey Ferry and cruise liners. If you look closely you can discover facts inside each alternate letter about the new Museum of Liverpool.
