St Wilfrid’s RCVA Primary School – Signage Project
St. Wilfrid’s RCVA Primary School, Blyth recently changes its name and want to create an impact in the community. The school had previously operated with no signs/identity. We were first contacted just before the school summer holidays to design, create and install full signage makeover.
The entrance to the school is marked with an aluminium tray sign mounted between square posts. The graphics and design were applied in vinyl. To try and keep a theme running between all St. Wilfrid’s signs we added their school crest as a watermark in the background, to add interest.
External signage was added to make the entrances clearer. These were made from 5mm clear acrylic with the graphics applied to the rear of the panel. This creates a crisp high gloss finished sign. It also adds an element of protection to the graphics as they are behind the clear acrylic.
The main school entrance had 3 floor-to-ceiling glass panels which needed to have some form of manifestation on. Not only does this give an opportunity to add some interest in the panels, but it is also required for health and safety purposes to prevent people from walking into the glazing.
Door and wall directional signage was created using the clear acrylic option. Again we added the crest watermark and kept the design uniform throughout. As these signs are lightweight, we opted to secure them with strong adhesive bonding tape to remove the need for visible fixings.
