Sheffield sign company, Signs Express, has brought life to the exhibitions at Weston Park in a lengthy project for Museums Sheffield.
Signs Express Sheffield has enjoyed a lasting relationship with Museums Sheffield, the charity responsible for three of Sheffield’s museums and galleries: Millennium Gallery, Weston Park Museum and Graves Gallery. Museums Sheffield relies on the team to create and install displays that connect effectively with visitors as well as creating graphics that push the boundaries between signs and art. Weston Park underwent an extensive refurbishment throughout 2016 that involved opening new exhibitions, renovating existing ones and improving the overall visitor journey. Signs Express Sheffield supplied creative partitions to block off the areas undergoing work, Then, as the refurb of each area neared its end, the team worked closely with curators to create numerous signs and graphics, including wall graphics, floor graphics, ultraviolet window panels, informational displays, wayfinding signs and more. Carol Morris, co-owner of Signs Express Sheffield, stated “We have been working extensively on projects that involve huge amounts of creativity; thinking outside the box has become the norm and I am so proud of my team who always find a way to execute projects that other companies wouldn’t cope with. We love working with local attractions and organisations like Museums Sheffield and making visitor experiences enjoyable and we hope to continue working with them on any new projects they have.” The grand refurbishment has now been fully revealed and you can see the new areas yourself for free, visithttp://www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/museums/weston-park/home to find out more.
