Thetford Academy is a secondary school and sixth form based in Norfolk in an impressive £18m new build. Their distinctive purple colour scheme for their branding is consistent across the school and Signs Now were asked to quote for various signs around the site.

This would be a huge project for our team of designers, fabricators and installers. The school were looking to protect their corridor walls from a large footfall of students moving around the building and potentially scuffing the surface. Rather than using the standard solution of clear acrylic, which can be unsightly, we decided that the better solution was to use foamex which not only gave the walls protection, but could also be print directly onto with a visually pleasing design. 

We worked in partnership with the school's own design department to create the artwork for 320m of corridor signage, which was in individual panels, all made to measure. The challenge we had was to work around radiators against the wall and other fixtures and fittings. This meant that accurate measurement was critical across all panels.

We also carried out an external signage installation including post and panel signs, monoliths and external wall signs (photographs to follow)
