Freedom from adversity


A trio of businessmen in the signage industry are seeing their new business thrive after turning lockdown adversity in success.

When Cornwall-based sign and interior firm, 2020 Projects went into administration earlier this year, two of its former employees faced an uncertain future.

Former project manager and install manager Mark Minton and Mark Williams joined forces with previous colleague, Daniel O’Riordan, to create Freedom Signs.

The newly-formed Perranporth-based business has already delivered several successful projects to high profile names such as The Tate St Ives, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and Truro BID.

Minton said: “We’ve certainly hit the ground running despite an uncertain economic climate, which is amazing. We’re really excited about the future, and I think that comes across in the way we engage with people and the positive client feedback we’ve received.”
