Leeds College of Music
The new entrance extension for the Leeds College of Music has been a great success with the College winning two prestigious RIBA awards. Given the high architectural and design standards expected for the building WIDD were selected as a trusted design and delivery partner for the College. The external signage provides a subtle but effective marker for identifying the building whilst the internal signage is exquisitely crafted and fitted with bright and welcoming aqua neon.
"WIDD were selected as our design and delivery partner for the extension's signage. I knew they were design professionals and would work to the exacting standards myself and the architects set. What we got is perfect."
The Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi
"Ripe have worked closely with WIDD for over 10 years. They understand design and place branding. They are technical experts and in my opinion create the best signs in the world today."
Working in creative partnership with Ripe, WIDD designed the Yas Hotel signage in Abu Dhabi. Located on Yas Island and with the Formula 1 track running through the hotel this has to be one of the most exciting destinations on the planet. The Logo is a complex 3D shape representing the Arabic word character Y, the LED cloak 'shroud' of the building, the waves of the marina and the F1 track running through the heart of it
