Like all true Mancunians, I love Vimto - so much better than that Ribena stuff, which is only fit for Southern softies.
So imagine my delight when I got a commission from one of the Vimto family to paint a poster which reflects the company’s unique appeal not just in Manchester but across the world and especially in the Middle East.
The company was created by the Nichols family in Manchester, and remains in the family to this day, hence the headline Nichols and dimes to show how successful it has been.
Here is me presenting the framed poster to Vimto’s Commercial Controller James Nichols at the company’s headquarters in Newton-Le-Willows.
Such an honour!
Thanks to the lovely Mel in Pop Boutique on Oldham Street for being my model - another true Manc from Ancoats.
