So does 'wheel reinvented for a quarter of the portas money??' mean that Tilley's fee was £2.5K.  If so, that's surprisingly reasonable.

£2.5k always seems a bit expensive for doing a little sketch but it does seem to be the going rate. Sadly, I have to agree with Dave.

my daughter was involved in original portas bid which marple won a 10,000 runners up prize.



Must admit this had completely passed me by but plenty of references if you Google Mary Portas Marple. Try this link:

What has this got to do with Portas? I thought the Portas group were concentrating on the re-invigorating Stockport Old town.

No it didn't.  The designers (Tilley) submitted their tender in April 2013.  We don't know when they got the commission or the full brief for the job.

So it took from April 2013 to make a logo?

my grandson noticed today the logo is very similar to the lamposts on the way into marple near the rolling pin shop

I think if that logo was shown to the population of Stockport, the vast majority would say that it depicted a train crossing the Stockport viaduct.

I think it's better still without the '&', as on the Tilley website: 'Canals - Mills - Hills'.

Has anyone else noticed the words on the winning design on the 'Tilley' website are in a different order to the words shown on the post submitted by Bluezorro?

Given the choice, I prefer Bluezorro's - they roll off the tongue better.

Which is correct?

Very nice design, though I'm not so keen on the strapline.  But at least it's better than 'industriously picturesque'!  

Yeah I'm not that keen on the strapline either. But I agree could've been worse - surely 'industriously picturesque' was thought up after an office night out on the port & cheese!

Before I jump to the obvious, awful, conclusion, could someone explain what the above post is referring to.
