SPECTACULAR REDESIGN OF DAVID HARBER BROCHURE AND WEBSITE

The stunning new David Harber brochures and website were launched at the end of last year: Ethos, Interiors, Exteriors and Big Spaces are each designed to highlight David's designs. This is the first time that David Harber has had brochures for interiors and public spaces and reflects the exciting and growing extension of David's repertoire across these boundaries.

Reflecting the design and ethos of the brochures, the new David Harber website is more contemporary in style and functionality. At its very best on larger screens, where huge images of David's pieces can be viewed showing all aspects of the design, the site is also designed to download fast in an easy to use format for mobiles. The new website also incorporates many videos of individual pieces that are also available to view on YouTube. All of our new brochures are available to download from our new website.

David was delighted to receive notification that the Court of Aldermen had passed an order for his admission to the Freedom of the City of London in The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. At the ceremony which was held at the Chamberlain's Court Room in the Guildhall David was asked to read aloud the Declaration of a Freeman and sign the Register of Freemen before receiving his Freedom certificate.

DOG DAYS

The arrival of the new energetic, full time, but somewhat hairy member of staff, little Luna Harber, has added another dimension to the David Harber offices and workshop. Always pleased to see everyone, sometimes exhausted by the effort of constant enthusiasm, Luna is always up for the team lunch time walk to the Bronze Age hill fort and delighted to oblige in cleaning up any crumbs inadvertently dropped on the floor.
