Frank Pick Memorial


A.J Wells have recently completed the manufacture and installation of a memorial to Frank Pick, the London Underground design visionary who shaped the look of the iconic London Underground.

Commissioned by Art on the Underground the concept was designed by artists Langlands & Bell and was unveiled at Piccadilly Circus station on the 8th November 2016. The permanent installation is situated on a recessed marble wall in the concourse of the station. Marking the 75th anniversary of Pick’s death the artwork consists of cast bronze lettering in the New Johnston font and a backlit roundel bearing his name manufactured in the A.J Wells workshops.
