Extending your brand into effective signage
We can work from start to finish, adopting your brand guidelines, running site surveys, designing signage schemes, providing mock-ups and detailed designs for sign off, risk assessments for installation and then running the installation project.
Multisite & Franchise services
Interflora, Mole Valley Stores & Giraffe Restaurants all rely on us
Providing consistent signage for multiple locations and franchises can be a complicated business. Individual sites have quirks that mean that a one-size-fits-all approach might not work, but a completely de-centralised approach can lead to inconsistency and unintentional damage to the brand. We try to offer the best of both worlds by agreeing sign standards and pricing with head office whilst liaising with individual sites for their requirements. We can then either invoice central accounts or invoice individual franchises and sites.
Outdoor and Temporary signage
On brand and on site: your creativity + our technical expertise = a great event
If you have outdoor signage or temporary signage requirements we can help you with both. We provide outdoor signage in a range of materials from Correx to Aluminium Composite for brands like the Woodland Trust. We can also provide temporary signage for pop-up stores, construction, exhibition spaces & festivals. We regularly provide signage for the Excel London and events like Gravity Fields Grantham.
Full Service Sign Management
Signs delivered direct to your internal clients, with you in the driving seat
We can operate like an in-house sign company. We agree the pricing structures, lead times, brand guidelines and a sign-off process you would like to use. We can then work directly with your internal clients. They contact us with their requirements, we ensure they get signage that meets the brand, performance and pricing standards you need. Hassle free signage without risking visiting a site and finding Comic Sans, spelling mistakes or off brand / mismatched signage.
Delivering on Brand vision
is our bread and butter
One brand - many requirements
We work with Woodland Trust delivering everything from temporary Correx signs through to bespoke wooden badges and plaques made from tree trunks.
A centralised brand team need to ensure consistency across a whole range of sites. We have worked with them to create a system where site owners, project managers and marketing execs can order from us and the brand owner knows they will get consistent, on brand signage without having to sign off every single product.
Finding the way to health
All too often hospitals and healthcare settings have complex, evolving signage requirements which are not well met. Our experience with a number of NHS trusts allows us to recommend and design robust wayfinding schemes and implementation methods, which allow for the inevitable changes and moves of wards, departments and personnel.
Industrial Branding with Solvay
Finding the way and defining the brand
bio-techDelivering branding for this multinational bio tech firm let us put our core strengths into play.
They needed a company that could translate a well defined corporate brand into site signage and make sure site traffic flowed properly, all with minimal downtime.
We surveyed 5 sites across the North of England, worked with the site managers to understand unique site traffic flows, risks and issues. We then developed a signage plan, mocked up all of the signs over survey photos and made adjustments until both brand and facility teams were completely happy. We then manufactured and fitted the new signs, doing everything we could to keep site downtime and disruption to a minimum.
Architectural Industrial Park Signage
High impact. Functional. Durable. On brand.
When the Teal Park management company wanted to translate their marketing brand into real world signage at their new Lincoln industrial park, hosting the likes of Siemens Turbomachinery & Marshall Jaguar Land Rover, they turned to Viking Signs. We designed, manufactured and installed a full set of 'hero' entrance signs along with monolith sector totems and individual unit numbers. All highly durable, consistent, prominent and maintaining the high brand value they wanted to establish for this prestigious development.
