Site survey, Design, Fabrication, Production, Installation, Project Management
This project hit the brief to deliver signage that beautifully reflects the company and its values. The client loved our solutions and the feel and look created. The client has since commissioned Wise Studios to bring new signage to two other office spaces. We enjoyed having the freedom to use our full range of expertise to create bespoke solutions for each space.
Internal signs for the modern offices of a creative engineer were needed to elevate the brand and create fun and professional spaces the team would be proud of, and enjoy to work in.
We undertook a site survey to experience the various spaces, understand the client’s needs, take measurements and advise on optimum sign locations. Signage was needed for the reception, team social hub area and meeting rooms with values displayed in a fun and eye-catching way.
Our design team came up with a range of sign designs and graphics that would bring the spaces to life. This included wall art, a Halo illuminated sign for the reception area, acrylic LED illuminated boxes, faux neon signs and vinyl graphics. Designs were presented to the client and once approved a quote was provided for manufacturing.
Fabrication and Production
A range of materials and solutions were used for signs in different spaces. Innovation was used to preserve handed painted wall art from a previous office. This was photographed and reproduced in a vinyl wallpaper. An intricate technique was used to manufacture faux neon signs reflecting the company values. Vinyl graphics were made to provide privacy on glass patrician walls.
Installation involved suspending three illuminated boxes from the ceiling, suspension of faux neon signs in the entrance way to seen from the street, an illuminated reception sign and installation of the vinyl wallpaper.
The Project Manager looked after the process from initial client briefings to installation. This involved co-ordinating design concepts, amendments and approval, and the manufacturing and installation process. The client was involved and updated on progress throughout the project.
