Corporate Signage Won By Graffiti Design

Graffiti Design is pleased to announce that the new rebrand of the Corporate Signage for Edwards Vacuum’s Global Technology Centre in Burgess Hill, Sussex will be completed by Graffiti Design.

After being approached by the global corporate giant, Graffiti entered into a tendering process with 3 other signage manufacturers. Damien Pestell, Sales and Marketing Director took the opportunity to really show what Graffiti Design as a company can offer to corporate clients, and created a complete signage solutions package for Edwards.

After a presentation of the tender at the site, and a tour around the award winning American Express Community Stadium, Edwards had a chance to see the proposed signage in reality.

The work consists of the complete rebrand of the existing site, to the new Global Technology Centre. The signage includes large monoliths signs, illuminated built-up letters and way-finding signs.

Edwards Vacuum is a world leader in development and manufacture of dry pumps and vacuums. Its global presence is exactly what Graffiti Design looks for in clients.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to work with one of Sussex’s largest companies. The volume and variety of signage required is great and the exposure of our work from this job can only benefit the company. We always look to work with market leaders like Edwards, and I’m delighted that we’ve got this chance.” Damien Pestell, Sales and Marketing Director and Project Manager of the works remarked.

Graffiti will now go about finalising all the artwork and designs which assisted in the awarding of the contract, and manufacture will begin in due course.

New Fat Face Store, New Fat Face Signage

Fat Face, one of Graffiti Design’s blue chip clients, has agreed on a new specification of signage for its new store in Waterloo Station.

Fat Face came to Graffiti to provide signage solutions for one its flagship stores and to really stand out from the crowd.

After deliberations over concepts and designs, samples were made and approved, and the new signage went into manufacture at Graffiti’s HQ in East Sussex. The new spec. consists of built-up letters with aluminium returns and opal acrylic faces. LEDs were also installed to provide face illumination. This a step in a new direction for Fat Face, as the normal signage is milled from timber or model board and then hand painted by Graffiti Design.

The store opened its doors on the 17th July 2012 following the recent works at the station. Waterloo has gone under major redevelopments for the opening of the Olympic Games and has had a first floor balcony added to allow extra retail units. Fat Face has taken the opportunity to expand into the busiest train station in the UK and it will be one of a few selected flagship sites in the UK.

Graffiti Design is looking forward to working with Fat Face on new projects which are on the horizon, and other clients which want to develop and improve their current branding.
