Design Notes

'Hit The North' is the result of an exciting collaboration with graphic artist Drew Millward. Best known for designing psychedelic posters for rock bands such as Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys, Drew was commissioned to create a Modernist-inspired cork wallpaper celebrating the creativity and industry of the north of England.

Drew's work is heavily influenced by the post-industrial landscape surrounding his home in Yorkshire, and this can be seen in the bold, monochromatic design featuring factory buildings, hills and circular, sun-like motifs. Drew’s trademark skulls, black cats and owls can also be spotted lurking within this intricate design.

Printed onto sustainable Portuguese cork, 'Hit The North' is an innovative juxtaposition of graphic art with a natural material, and as such it has been awarded the prestigious Design Guild Mark for 2020/2021.

This highly distinctive printed cork wallpaper adds instant character to a contemporary space or provides the perfect contrast to period detailing such as exposed brickwork or wooden panelling. Recent customer projects have included a music room (the cork has great acoustic qualities), a games room and a basement powder room. In a contract setting, 'Hit The North' creates a wonderfully textural backdrop for bars, restaurants or wine cellars.

The design is 130cm wide and supplied by the running metre.
