Bonwyke Design was started back in 1980 and has grown to be one of the largest supply and installer of graphics and window film in the UK.

Our name derives from the story of an old village named Bonwyke which sits along the southern border of France. Back before window film had any technological advances, the people of the village had to protect their glass from the elements blown up by the mediterranean winds.

To avoid their windows from becoming sand blasted over time, they would regularly place pieces of what ever see-through materials they could source on to the glass. The result would be a stained-glass looking protective surface.

It is thought that this is how we may have arrived to where we are with glazing graphics and film to this very day. Bonwyke Design has been aptly named to carry on the legacy of the little known town that made such a difference.

Andy

Estimating

One of the more vibrant characters in the company, Andy loves to lift spirits with his wacky persona. Somehow, he has always been involved in a job position with high responsibility but this may be due to his well educated brain as opposed to his humour.

There has always been a power-struggle to who owns the title of biggest geek between himself and Grant but we believe Andy is just edging it.
