"We believe in the art of the possible and will create anything your heart desires. Our specialty is custom, personalised design". 

An initial consultation often transpires into a lengthy informal conversation about how we can add to your event, and along the journey I am often asked "Ahmed what's your background and how did you get started?!"
      'm Ahmed,  founder and senior graphic              designer at Retro Signs - a company born out of passion for design and creativity...
Flourishing since 2015 we have gone from strength to strength in a short period of time! From our increasingly popular and trendsetting selfie frames to our latest launch of our Bloom Boxes, we continue to design and develop new and innovative personalised products to enhance your special event.
Having a father who has also been extremely successful in the design business, my background in graphic design began extremely early on in life. Therefore when transitioning on to university, a degree at The University of Leeds in Graphic & Communication Design seemed a natural route. My degree enabled me to further improve my skill set and gave me the confidence to develop ideas that were fresh and inventive.
"It was only when I was organising my own wedding that I realised there was a gap in the market for a business that not only created an abundance of personalised event props and features, but also an events business that welcomed customers who have an extremely specific vision for their event".  
This led to the birth of Retro Signs in 2015, and we haven't looked back since!  We understand our clients have individual requirements and we take immense pride in creating bespoke products to harmonise with your event. Whether customers are ordering a piece we make frequently, or come to us with a completely new and never before seen concept, we work tirelessly to make customers dreams a reality. We are always striving to meet your demands and expectations for quality, class and an excellent experience throughout. Our ethos is simple - quality, beauty and individuality in everything we produce!
