Applause for Signs Express (Glasgow) as they recently picked up a national award recognising their amazing work at the local Science Centre's brand new Planetarium.
The impressive work that the Glasgow branch has undertaken at the Science Museum has been featured in newspapers and magazines around the UK and as a cherry on top of the cake, it has now been recognised by winning the Best Project 2015 award at the Signs Express Convention.
The award took into account all facets of the work carried out by the team from Signs Express (Glasgow), these included five floor-to-ceiling banners each measuring 4.7m x 2m, printed wall graphics, hoardings and a double-sided suspended lightbox greeting people entering and bidding farewell to those leaving. Arguably, the largest part of the project was the creation of a 28 metre long, 3 metre high illuminated installation formed from 2 lightboxes measuring 12m x 3m and 16m x 3m respectively.
As you can imagine, a project of this scale has taken many months of planning and execution; in fact, the team at Signs Express (Glasgow) have worked tirelessly since June 2015 to design create and install a functional solution to the Science Centre's needs.
Graham Casey, owner of Signs Express (Glasgow) received the prestigious award on the night and stated 'I am extremely proud of all of my team. They work tirelessly every day and this project was exceptionally tricky, but the results look amazing, so having our commitment to achieving our goals acknowledged is brilliant.'Signs Express (Sheffield)
were also recognised as finalists in this award category. In one of their most challenging projects to date, Signs Express (Sheffield) was honoured to work with renowned artist Florence Blanchard, perfectly recreating her latest 'Particles' piece across the window frontage of the Millennium Gallery
in Sheffield. The design needed to be completely vectored by the sign making team in to individual sections as it was imperative a variety of textures and effects were used across the window, creating a dynamic and engaging finish. The design also needed to be scaled across the high profile entrance, producing stunning yet tricky project, which deserves the recognition.
Signs Express (Southampton) was listed as a finalist in this category for their extensive work at the Mayflower Cruise Terminal – a £6m refurbishment project. The project included way-finding, information and safety signage for both the interior and exterior of the Terminal, the majority of which were illuminated for high impact and visibility. The job required 152 illuminated and non-illuminated light boxes, including both single and double sided and vinyl window and door graphics as well as a main building sign with built up letters. The team at the Southampton branch met the very tight deadline and worked closely with numerous other factions involved in the development.
