Sunderland has a rich industrial heritage and a vibrant heart and soul. In this hand-drawn Sunderland print I’ve celebrated both the history and culture of the north-east city.
What features on the Sunderland print?
Sunderland is my home city and it’s been a great honour producing this design to celebrate the rich history of the city. Many people know Sunderland as an industrial city with its roots in ship-building, the glass industry and mining. These industries are still form a huge part of the identity of Sunderland and something which Mackems are immensely proud of. In this Sunderland poster I’ve represented these elements of our industrial history but I also wanted to celebrate other great aspects of the city. The music and cultural scene in Sunderland features such bands like The Futureheads, Lake Poets and Field Music, and the new city centre MAC Quarter. The city features iconic landmarks like Penshaw Monument, the new Norther Spire Bridge, Roker Pier and Lighthouse and Wearmouth Bridge. Of course the design wouldn’t have been complete without a nod to the eternally frustrating Sunderland AFC. There’s also many more things to be found when you explore this Sunderland print.
Who is the print for?
This Sunderland print would be perfect for any Mackem or for anyone who has studied in the city at The University of Sunderland. The print would be a great focal point and conversation starter in your home. The print sparks nostalgic memories as each element on the design will mean something different to each person who views it.
