Halo Lit LED Letter Signs for Leading UK Corporation

Another project for Ashdown Business Park saw the manufacture and installation of these beautiful custom 3D signs for Jemtech, a fluid management company in need of high quality new corporate signage to adorn their new premises on the estate.

Halo Lit Letter Design and Manufacture

Featuring three 3 metre-high halo lit sign letters and logo in powder-coated aluminium, each sign was securely fixed on a stainless steel mount to Jemtech’s swish new offices and warehouse. At night, the halo effect ensures true-tone colours and visibility from far away.

Entirely manufactured within Graffiti Design factories in Sussex and fitted with white LED halo illumination (similar to backlit letters), these corporate signs know the meaning of enlightened business.

Each metal letter was crafted using a CNC router, and the rest was made by hand.

Corporate Signage That Matches Brand Identity

Applications Engineering Ltd approached us wanting corporate signage that truly reflected their logo and strong brand identity

The corporate sector is a significant part of our work. From small businesses to enormous visual brands like Accessorize and even governmental organisations, we’ve worked with almost every high street brand you’re familiar with.

Brand Identity Design

Logo design being their expertise, for Applications Engineering Ltd the Graffiti Design team came up with corporate signs that mean business: minimalistic and modern, with an architectural element and colour palette rather reminiscent of NASA.

We digitally printed the logo, which was then reverse-applied to a 1200mm-diameter acrylic dome in a powder-coated aluminium housing. We also manufactured a low-level silver aluminium monolith with individual blue aluminium letters. 

Manufactured entirely in-house, each letter was hand-crafted by one of our expert craftsmen.

Steel Monolith Retail Signage – Solar Powered and Efficient

Over the summer, our retail signage installation team have been kept busy with the installation of a new steel monolith in Ashdown Business Park, Sussex, home to many corporate offices and retail stores.

In this digital age, it’s easy to forget how visual brands need to be to feature in our lives. We no longer notice how many logos flash before our eyes on the screen. However, in the brick and mortar world, branding and store signage are the rather more stolid equivalents of rapid-fire adverts on our devices. For this task, they need to be sturdy, durable, and – in this energy-conscious civilisation – as efficient as possible. 

For this particular project, it was decided that a monolith equipped with a solar power system was best, as the retail signs needed no lighting in the day, but would store daylight for use during the night time. 

Monoliths are powered by solar cells and panels with unique controllers, allowing for management of power usage and extension of battery life. Over time, the system cost is paid back in time and energy saved.

Signage Specs and Fabrication

Entirely custom-built and manufactured in-house at Graffiti Design’s state-of-the-art premises, our sleek monoliths of 316 stainless steel and powder-coated aluminium each weigh three-quarters of a ton, standing at 4 metres high. Each structure was lifted into place by a £245k articulated truck-mounted Hiab with a 26-metre reach. Talk about heavy lifting!

The retail signs themselves were CNC cut, laser cut, fabricated and manipulated, shaped, joined and finished by hand.
