Historic Environment Scotland

The past 30 years has seen a sea change in the way people shop. Our haemoginised and digital shopping worlds are here to stay but they have also created a desire for personal service and local, independent retailing.

We have recorded local aspects of this story for Historic Environment Scotland at their their new home in Stirling, the Engine Shed.

Talking Shops - A history of Scottish Shopfronts takes many shapes. Contrasting the technical details of construction, we created a film showing the human face of shopfronts. Case studies that look at new uses for high street units mix with traditional crafts resurrected through a new generation of sign-writers who contributed to both film and physical exhibition alike.
