“Westec”, Westminster: centred

“Westec” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • Finally, I’ll end with a Westec with the screw-hole centred on the UK, rather than the Atlantic as in this one, which I started with. I was pleased to learn that the design was created in 1985 by the 14-year-old son of the one of the firm’s owners, as he explains here. This is rather a rusty example, sadly, but it’s the only one I’ve got. However the firm’s boss tells me it still isn’t the  final version, due to the slightly wiggly type – which looks to me like a typical result of computer-traced artwork circa the early 90s, and wouldn’t have been noticeable high up. There’s a correct version in the comment here• Spotted: Great Titchfield Street, City of Westminster, London, W1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster.

  1. I hope you agree attachment shows a better picture of the Westec logo, the WESTEC is not supposed to be straight and the quality of the artwork is much better, I don’t know how we accepted the artwork of the other two. That’s it we were too busy running a company to worry about a box high up on a building that only sad cases like us look at.
