‘Norfolkshine’ is a visual ode to Norfolk. Radiating a certain proudness and positivity about our great East Anglian county.
The ‘Norfolkshine’ print revives the nostalgic blue identity of the ‘Norfolkline’. A familiar image in our streetscape. Widely seen on cargo ships, ferries, trains and lor- ries. But sadly enough since 2010 evaporated from our North Sea horizon.
To Paul this Norfolkshine print is a connection between my home country The Netherlands and Norfolk. ‘Norfolk Lijn’ was founded in Holland, in the county where he was born. In the late 50s a Dutch trader in vegatables, L. Remeeus, wished to have his vegetables quicker in England and started to sail directly between Scheveningen and Great Yarmouth. Faster than the traditional route Callais/Dover.
