schuh

Working with a brand leader

We’ve recently been working with schuh to assist with internal and external signage on some of their stores across the UK. Our latest completion is a new store in Glasgow, where we have fitted external branding to the fascia, internal illuminated installations and specially developed wall patterns. We’ve worked with schuh for sometime now and it’s been great to be a part of the evolving brand over the years.

Primark Birmingham

Think Big

The worlds biggest Primark is now open! The project has been a mammoth task and hosts a whole variety of signage produced in our workshop at Widd. We have created signage not just for the retail space but also a barbershop, two cafes and a Disney space all under the same roof. Much of the signage is bespoke to this very unique store which includes LED illuminated brand signage, laser cut directories, wayfinding signage, Disney brand signage, custom light boxes, LED neon like features and new proximity aware signage. The signage has been incorporated well within the architecture of the Pavilions building, which has created a fantastic shopping experience and a lot of excitement for the world of Primark!

Science and Industry Museum

Manchester

We were approached by the Science and Industry Museum after completing previous work at the National Railway Museum in York and IMAX signage at the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. The task was to remove the existing non-illuminated signage on the totem sign and replace this with a double sided internally illuminated sign and to introduce an illuminated sign over the entrance to the museum. The signage type is back lit with cost effective LED illumination with removable flexface skins to the face, which means the graphics can also be changed quickly and cost effectively in the future if necessary. Some of the signage was also installed at night to minimise the disruption to the public during the day time. The results are stunning and it has been great to work with the Science Museum Group on these fantastic projects.

Fives Landis

A Shared Passion For Quality

Fives Landis have been a long standing client of ours, over the years we've created a real variety of signage and installations. One of our more recent challenges was to create an adaptable map for their board room, which enabled them to plot the locations of their machines across the world - literally! We designed a concept and built a magnetic system that allows them to add and adapt as the company develops, whilst also retaining the corporate look of the Fives Landis brand.

IMAX at the National Science and Media Museum

 

We've recently built and installed new signage at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford. The collossal IMAX logo boldly sits in the Bradford skyline and can be seen right across Centenary Square. It's been a pleasure to work on such a prestigious project for all those involved.

"Thanks everyone for your help with this project.  Everything ran extremely smoothly during the installs and I am sure you will agree the signs look great …I think the sign makes a great addition to the Bradford city skyline. Please thank the install teams, extremely professional and nothing was a problem, even with the early starts and late nights."

Sentio Partners

 

Sentio a specialist in corporate finance, approached us with a simple brief to ‘make our offices reflect a modern but professional approach to work’. Through creative thinking and working with their current online marketing strategy we created an environment that flows seamlessly. The use of specialist graphics / softly matched paints and bespoke laser cut items have given them a powerful office environment to be proud of.

Following our recent office move, Widd helped us with our internal signage for both our client facing meeting area together with our internal workspace. At the outset, we had an idea of the themes we were looking for, based on which, the team took time to understand what we were looking for and produced a range of potential ideas. In a short space of time, we progressed through a number of iterations to the final designs, and were provided with quality design input throughout. We were impressed with the speed of production and installation was meticulous, with careful planning ensuring there was no disruption within the office. The project was well managed, and we are delighted with the outcome”
