“We think we need to dramatically improve the image of the school from the entrance.”
With this clear brief ringing in our ears we set to work. The school had a strong brand identity in place so we were able to focus on finding the best opportunities to use it.
An initial site visit provided ideas about which areas we should focus on to get the impact that the school wanted to make, with one building in particular that faced the local community in need of some attention.
We presented a bold idea to the school leaders; create bright, good quality entrance signs and wrap the entire side of the ‘eyesore’ building. We also wanted to treat other glazed area around the site.
With the green light we worked on the final designs and then managed the entire manufacture and installation, which included covering large sections of glazing with speciality etch film and covering the previously red infill panels that converted a pretty ugly building into a beautiful opportunity to welcome visitors and share the school’s values.
The new gate signs were designed to stand out and elevated the impression of the school from the road.
“We can’t believe what a difference the new signs have made. We look like a new school. We are very happy with the quality of the work and how easy you made it. Thank you.”
