Ark runs 34 schools across the UK, located in Birmingham, London and Hastings, as well as their first international school in Delhi, India.

They had recently had a rebrand so began a tendering process to roll it out across all schools to keep branding consistent. The initial tender was based around Ark Swift based in West London, which we won. We then installed signs at 5 schools over the summer, which were Ark Conway, Ark Bentworth, Ark Byron, Ark Priory and Ark Swift.

For each one, Michael and Liam visited it, took measurements and photos enabling them to produce a detailed spec of what we would be completing at each school. Once they were happy with this they sent us through branding guidelines for each school and Dave worked on proofs for them. Once signed off, we arranged dates to install the signs over the summer holidays. It was imperative for the signs to be replaced before the new school year started, which meant hard work and overtime for our installers to ensure that this happened.

Signs Now completed a variety of different types of signs - built up letters, flat cut letters, basic and deluxe post and panels, wall signs, tray signs, plus various of vinyl graphics and digital print wall paper internally. 

Over the next few years the remaining schools will need to change to the new branding. It is a chance to help visitors and parents navigate around the school more easily, updating and relocating existing signs. Where they already had letters, we replaced with new, so the signs required depended on what was already there as well as the buildings themselves.
