Redrow 1

This Mug just screams ‘Nineties’ to me. It must be the bold serif fonts and drop-shadow. However it’s a pert little proto-Atlantic and makes a very worthy companion-piece to the ‘Barratt’ entry already in our annals.¬† Back in the day I don’t recall any TV ads for Redrow, only press.
Of course home building and the housing industry have had a fallow few decades but now there are signs newer houses are being built and if only the greedy supermarkets would free-up some of their annexed land-banks, it might alleviate the situation further. However, lets face it though, who on earth these days can even afford a deposit on a two-up, two down terrace, let alone a Redrow new-build?

Their ‘About Us’ Web-waffle states: We pride ourselves in delivering quality home (sic) to our customers and value to our shareholders.
Redrow is one of the UK’s leading residential property developers, aiming to be the developer of choice for customers, colleagues, landowners, suppliers, subcontractors and investors.¬† The company has a reputation for imaginative design, build quality and customer service, with the skills needed to complete a wide range of developments¬† – from large greenfield sites to complex brownfield regeneration schemes.
Greenfield? Brownfield? Have they not tried ‘Strawberry Fields‘, where nothing is real?
