A collection that celebrates the illustrations of Dundee based publishing company DC Thomson. The company that gave us The Beano, The Dandy and many more.

I'm sure by now you may have heard about the collaboration between DC Thomson and Hemingway Design in 2013. A frutiful partnership that has lead to the development of some fresh new designs. Some of which we are pleased to be adding to our Beano & Friends collection.
We caught up with Wayne Hemingway recently to ask for his thoughts on the designs amd the project with DC Thomson.
"True to the Beano brands’ DNA, our Beano collection of prints introduces humorous comic art, original typography and sound-effect artwork drawn from the Hemingway team’s exploration of the DC Thomson archives in Dundee. The prints offer a fresh take on childhood mischief and features The Beano’s biggest stars Dennis the Menace and Gnasher, The Bash Street Kids, Minnie the Minx, Biffo the Bear and Roger the Dodger. Appealing to fans of all generations, our forensic combing of the amazing and evocative Beano back catalogue is a reflection of HemingwayDesign’s ability to take a left field look and hopefully bring out some hitherto undiscovered DNA."

We always feel a little like we've been up to no good when we're working with the Beano comics collection. We can't help but be drawn into Denis and Gnasher's mischievous world. We expect that this is exactly the appeal for a mural from our Beano & Friends collection.
These beautifully drawn comics are very popular as our Birch Ply Prints and Canvas prints, but they really make a statement as our Bespoke Murals.
Angela Wilson, ceased the opportunity to redecorate her beautiful kitchen with a page from a 1975 edition of The Beano that features a scene of Dennis Gnasher terrorising the local butchers and bakers shops by playing with food. We hope that there is less uproar in the Kitchen of our customer than that of the bakery.
"Here is a picture of my fantastic wall mural supplied by your splendid company. I am so very happy with it and it makes me chuckle every day when I walk in my kitchen."
It's the sort of praise we're keen to receive more of but more importantly it's with exactly the spirit we like to see our Murals used in our customers homes.
