    A giant sign on the roof of the London office of Pimlico Plumbers as a protest against Brexit. The design of the banner is plain but effective, using all caps Myriad on a bright yellow background. The company logo, using Palatino, is a missed opportunity for an LTypI.

    The 35 metre long sign on the roof of my London headquarters proudly proclaims ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ and like the headline says it’s staying up there in full view of 300,000 daily commuters, making their way in and out of Waterloo station, until the Brexit project is dead and buried. — Pimlico Plumbers

    “A London businessman who has been asked by a local council to remove a 100-foot “Bollocks to Brexit” sign above his premises has stepped up his fight. Charlie Mullins, who owns Pimlico Plumbers, had previously accused Lambeth council of trying to stifle freedom of speech when it contacted him asking to remove the sign above his store.” — The New European, 9 October 2018.

    17 October 2018: “On Monday, I took the decision to temporarily replace our giant ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ sign with an equally as important and large message – to urge all those concerned about the shattering impacts of Brexit, to get to Park Lane at midday on Saturday and March For The Future!”

    24 October 2018: “Yesterday we launched our latest weapon in the war against Brexit, our own Pimlico Plumbers London taxi cab, which now proudly proclaims ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ as it goes about its business ferrying our staff, especially the apprentices, to and from jobs across London.”
