Museum Interpretation Contract Won

What a great way to start 2013! We have just been awarded the museum interpretation contract for Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s new museum at the American Express Community Stadium. The contract includes museum interpretation, signage, way-finding, graphics and branding.

Plans for the museum have been floating about ever since the stadium was built, and was originally intended to be in place for the opening of the Amex back in the summer of 2011. However, the club has been a bit busy recently with all the expansions and new training ground plans, so it was put on the back burner.

However I can now happily say that works are due to start and the new museum should be operational by the end of May 2013, allowing fans to enjoy the famous high points of the clubs 112 year history.

We were approached by BHAFC regarding the museum, and then introduced PLB to the football club. PLB is a heritage design consultancy, who we worked with extremely closely with on the Basing House Ruins Project where we provided much museum interpretation. The club were delighted with the proposals set out by PLB, and there after we successfully tendered for the works and manufacture is planned for February/March. We have good knowledge and experience now within the museum interpretation field, after projects such as Lewes Castle, Havering Museum and Basing House Ruins.

LIW 2012 Signage from Graffiti Design

I am pleased to announce that it has been confirmed that Graffiti Design will be producing signage for the Leisure Industry Week 2012 and we will be exhibiting there in September.

After negotiations with the event organisers, we have managed to contra a signage deal with the inclusion of a stand for exhibiting the new signage and the company’s best bits over the past few years.

LIW 2012 will be taking place at the NEC arena Birmingham from the 18th to the 20th of September. It is an ideal platform for us at Graffiti Design to showcase our most recent work and successes throughout our leisure facility client base.

The Brighton & Hove Community Stadium will be one of the main attractions at our stand, and other projects including Carluccio’s restaurant chain, Southern Fried Chicken fast food chain and Fitness First Gyms will all be presented to a wide audience of national leisure facility bosses and decision makers.

Graffiti Design will also be sponsoring the signage and branding it accordingly, giving us a great opportunity to advertise to all the attendees over the 3 day event.

This exhibition will allow us at Graffiti Design to expand into the vast sector. We have already made excellent progress into the field, however this event should be the launch pad required to really propel the Graffiti Design name into the higher echelons of leisure industry signage with major players attending the exhibition.

All are welcome to visit the event and see firsthand the fantastic work that is being produced on a daily basis here at Graffiti Design, and to find out how signage plays a big part in any company.

We look forward to seeing you there!
