Another of the installation pieces we produced for the National Trust’s ‘Celebration of 20th Century Women Gardeners’, this one is at Montacute House. Vita Sackville-West provided the inspiration for this piece, she is probably best known for her architectural approach to garden design as well as use of single colour. We wanted to focus on these characteristics in the creation of these sculptural pieces. Children are  particularly enjoying being able to interact with them, running in and out of the ribbons and around the poles.


Redesigning the wedding brochure for the Longhouse in Bruton turned out to be one of those really nice one off pieces. For the cover we used a lovely uncoated stock with fine silver foiling on a rich chocolate brown special. Rather unusually we tipped in an undersized gatefold 8pp which reinforce the values of the client who provide a unique and bespoke service.

On Tuesday, 1st June and running for 5 months ‘A celebration of 20th Century Women Gardeners’ went live.

The National Trust commissioned Ice House Design to celebrate the lives of Vita Sackville-West, Gertrude Jekyll and Phyllis Reiss, three amazing women gardeners. We produced 3 different sculptures inspired by their character and situated in the grounds of where they had a profound impact – Tintinhull Gardens, Montecute House an Barrington Court. These pieces were supported by other promotion print collateral we also were asked to produced.
