Astonish

A New Challenge

Astonish have recently had a brand update, which meant their Bradford HQ signage needed an uplift. We were recently tasked with the challenge! Astonish have been an existing client for many years and we in fact created their original signage, many years ago. The fully illuminated signs are a colossal 10 meters across and 5 meters high! The new installations can actually be seen from the M606. The project has been a great success that has had all the Widd team involved.

Not all our projects are created from scratch, here one the original letters is undergoing full restoration before being re-installed with other new elements to match the Astonish branding update

The Lost & Found

'The Old Town Hall'

The Knutsford Old Town Hall has recently been fully renovated into an exciting restaurant. Earlier this year Widd were asked to work with the architects to design & build signage for the Lost & Found brand. We have liaised with Lost & Found throughout the project with many ideas and design stages, before showing the project to the council for planning. The project has been a pleasure to get involved with and the brand goes hand-in-hand with the aesthetics of this grade II listed building!

Primark - Damrak, Amsterdam

The only one of it's kind.

The ribbon has been cut to our recently completed, fully bespoke Primark store in Amsterdam! Seven floors of hand-made signs and features - this has been a mammoth project running parallel to many of our other Primark projects throughout Europe. It's been a pleasure working closely with Primark on such a unique project, where much of the design inspiration has come from the unique Dutch style housing in Amsterdam.
