The Larder focusses on ‘food fairness for all’ and promoting healthy, low-waste and locally sourced food. During the Covid-19 pandemic, The Larder’s team of volunteers have worked tirelessly to set up a food delivery service for some of the most vulnerable residents in the city.

Leigh is inspired by vintage advertising and now combines visuals and graphics influenced by traditional sign painters and graphic designers with themes from popular culture in order to create a style of quirky and high-quality artworks.

Leigh has created a small custom range of painted tactile tools and signs adorned with typography. The use of tools such as saws further connects to the heritage of The Harris’ collections and Preston’s industrial and merchant history.
