A nice piece and quite hard to find. Can you believe this was Jonathan Harris's first project after he left college in 1987. Isle of Wight Glass Museum has a copy of the original transfer for this design in its collection.

Does anyone have any idea who made those transfers for him and if they are still in business.

I'll ask the studio. It may be on the transfer itself or Tim Harris may know.

I have just phoned the museum and they say the transfer says 'Precision Studios' on it. I have had a quick look online, but can't find anything local to the UK in the graphic design arena.
