Jo, the Maker

Jo and her husband John have always been creative. Intended came about after they made a light box for themselves from a vintage tube sign, then bought a vintage bus roll and did the same. The business has now grown as they create beautiful light boxes from vintage bus rolls, bus stop signs and signs from the London Underground.

making a light box

They are very conscious about materials and committed to repurposing vintage products to create sensational decorations for the home. They want to grow to making lots of items that no longer serve their intended purpose and to give them a new one, to reduce waste and breathe new life into old items.

No two light boxes are the same and they are all created using original vintage signage. They use sustainable wood for the frame, water-based wood glue, water-based blackboard paint and low voltage LED lights. They can even cut the sign to make it exactly as you want (e.g. cut "Totteham Hale Station" to just "Tottenham"). They offer a bespoke service and will try to source any destination requests.
