The postman delivered a surprise parcel to Coulson Macleod HQ on Friday.
A parcel for us? Normally it’s Coulson Macleod sending out parcels.
And why should Jamie Oliver be thanking Coulson Macleod? Well we designed a bespoke typographic print for his charity, The Jamie Oliver Foundation. The print was auctioned off at A Big Night Out With Jamie, his fundraising evening held at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Our print was bought by David Ellender, Global CEO of Fremantle Media for £1,100.
As Coulson Macleod continues to grow and develop, so do our typographic art collections. We’ve just updated our Bespoke page and now offer our bespoke typographic art onto rusted steel, solid limestone, and whitewashed frames made from reclaimed timber.

We are happiest when we’re creating bespoke typographic art for our customers.
Firstly, because we simply enjoy the design process. Obviously.
Secondly, because it fills our office with love. Personal messages from husbands to wives, girlfriends to boyfriends, daughters to mothers. Special words, thoughts and phrases from the heart that invariably make us go “aw!”.
Sometimes at Coulson Macleod HQ we’re asked to design something a little different. And this is one of our favourites…
A wonderful wedding anniversary gift to a husband using his phrase. Perfect!
BIG news time and it’s all to do with Jamie Oliver.
Coulson Macleod was approached by The Jamie Oliver Foundation who asked if we’d consider designing a piece of bespoke typographic art for their annual fundraising event, A Big Night Out With Jamie.
Well, we didn’t have to think twice. We love Jamie Oliver.
The event is being held this Thursday (11th November). And it’s being held in St Paul’s Cathedral. Wow!
Our ‘Pukka Print’ (get it?) is being put into the silent auction, which will be displayed on electronic keypads at every table, shown on screens around the room, and goes into the auction pack. Cool! When we showed The Jamie Oliver Foundation our final design, they loved it so much they asked if we could send the actual print to them, so people at the event can admire it in the ‘flesh’.
The annual fundraising event is in aid of Fifteen’s pioneering Chef Apprentice Programme. Money raised at the event will be reinvested so Fifteen can continue to offer young people, often in need of a break in life, the experience of learning to work in the restaurant business.
I also mentioned this on BBC radio last week if you’d like to listen to this interview.

Jamie will be there. Obviously. As will his wife, The Lovely Jools. Ben Shephard is co-hosting. The Fifteen chefs and apprentices will be creating a four-course meal designed by Jamie. Diana Vickers is performing.
Just wish we were going.
I don’t often get to air my views as Macleod is always hogging the blog, but every now and again I manage to pry myself away from, you know, work and stuff, to tell all you lovely people about what we’ve actually been doing. So here I am to showcase some of the bespoke typographic art pieces we’ve produced recently.
If you’ve had a look at the bespoke typographic artwork page on our website you will see that we can produce unique prints based on most of our art collections, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re designers, and we can pretty much produce anything you want, whether that’s a specific shape or size, or artwork in a different style entirely.
Here’s a good example. This customer wanted the artwork to fit a specific spot in his hallway so it had to measure 120cm x 60cm, and to match the colours in his striped carpet… not a problem.
The customer had this to say…
“September: checked the calendar and OMG it’s our wedding anniversary coming up fast, what can I get Emm? Had been looking at the Coulson Macleod website a few weeks earlier and it all fell into place. After a phone call and an email things moved fast. I had an idea of what I wanted. Bespoke typography. The first verse from our song. Coulson Macleod had a draft over in a few days. Reclaimed wooden frame made the following week. Delivered the week after. Thank you Coulson Macleod. It looks fantastic. And I’m the best hubby on the block (for now!)”
Here are a few more recent pieces just to give you an idea of the kinds of things we can do.*
Just to show you some examples of our bespoke art…
This one, using our ‘Winter Trees’ as a base, was created for one of our customers…
… who then wrote us this amazing testimonial,
“I’d been interested in Coulson Macleod’s work after seeing it in the press, and having discovered via their website that they also do bespoke work, I suggested an alternative wording. We discussed a treatment, I was sent an image for pre approval and five days later a fantastic and unique piece is now hanging in our home. I could not be more delighted with the finished piece of work whilst the service offered was nothing short of brilliant.”
Isn’t that nice?
Our bespoke personalization service can also be based on our rough-sawn solid oak-framed ‘Love’ prints, like this one…
All you have to do is pick a similar number of words and sentences that you want to incorporate, and we do the rest.
So if you’d love to own a one-off piece of art that has been created just for you, or you need to find a truly unique gift, then just click on Coulson Macleod. Simple.
Here at Coulson Macleod HQ we’ve been doing a spot of thinking. And talking. And generally mulling over business.
Our ‘Love’ prints are proving very popular, particularly in wedding blogs and I’ve had various wedding magazines showing an interest too.
So we thought how lovely it would be for those about to get married to be able to commission a print just for them.
Their very own Coulson Macleod. Bespoke. Personalized. A one-off… “to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.”
If you’d like a one-off piece of art creating just for you, then email us, and we’ll start creating your very own message of love.
