At Foreground, we believe that Frome’s distinctive spirit and reputation for going its own way is something to be celebrated, and after being voted the best place to live in The South West in The Sunday Times 2017 Best Places to Live Guide, our fantastic home town is truly on the national map.
To celebrate we have got together with lettering supremo and regular Foreground collaborator Daren Newman to make a new limited edition print of the Independent State of Frome brand. The new print is available in a limited edition of 100 for only £15.00 from Foreground Art Supplies.
Originally designed to accompany Foreground’s major participatory project Independent State in 2009, Daren Newman’s Independent State of Frome slogan design quickly became Frome’s (un)official brand, reflecting the unique essence of the town - from electing a wholly independent town council to creating the largest curated street market in the UK.
Starting off as a t-shirt the brand has grown over the years to include bags, homewares and prints expressing Frome’s particular spirit. Printed in the Independent State of Frome brand signature red, the new print features Newman’s beautiful logo and the bold statement of intent FOREVER. The print celebrates a future of optimism that Frome’s ‘can-do’ attitude continues to make a reality. The Independent State of Frome is here to stay, forever.
The full Independent State of Frome merchandise range, as well as our other collections such as Middle of Nowhere, Centre of Everywhere and Ruth Proctor’s Something Wonderful Will Happen other can be found here.
