Signs Express (Grantham) are celebrating this week after winning the prestigious Sign Excellence ‘Exterior Sign Project of the Year’ award.
The awards are held annually by Signs Express, inviting all of their 80 centres across the UK and Ireland to enter. The awards give the centres in the network an opportunity to be fully recognised for their individual achievements. With the competition open to all, it was vital each centre put forward their very best and most innovative designs and installation projects from the past 12 months.
Split into four categories – Interior, Exterior, Vehicle and Project, the awards are independently judged by industry experts, British Sign & Graphics Association (BSGA) director David Catanach and Sign Directions’ Magazine editor Val Hurst.
Against stiff competition, centre manager of Signs Express (Grantham) Ian Charles and his team were awarded the top spot for their design, build and installation of an exterior totem sign for Nottingham Regeneration Ltd. The sign was given exceptional praise from the judges being described as their ‘absolute favourite! Attractive, well conceived and totally at home in its surroundings.’
The bespoke totem was constructed to show the Nottingham skyline and to ensure the lettering stood out, the skilled team hand-painted each letter in striking red, reflecting the logo of Nottingham Regeneration Ltd. Installed over just 4 working days, the completed modern signage compliments the extensive upgrading of the Provident Works grade II listed building.
