Orange letter ‘U’. Made from 3mm cast acrylic moulded into the letter ‘U’, part of an order for a customer who required the letters for a children’s Nursery School in Bradford. The letters went on a wall in the main reception of the building.

Note. When I took the photo it was definitely orange, when I resized it on my computer it was still a bright orange but when I uploaded it to the blog it has a definite look of red to it. This is a red moulded letter ‘U’ formally known to us as an orange letter ‘U’. Do not adjust your monitor just imagine it is orange.
