Case Study


How we helped the Bentall Centre

Bentall Centre Signage
Bentall centre kingston

The Challenge

The Bentall Centre wanted to create a ‘Summer Garden’ event that would be located on the lower ground floor level of the shopping centre. They required signage that would effectively raise awareness of the event by notifying the shopping centre visitors, assist in guiding them to the event area and help in generating the desired atmospheric feel of the Bentall Centre wanted to achieve from the event.

The Solution

Following an initial meeting with the Bentall Shopping Centre and FASTSIGNS to develop an in depth understanding of the purpose of the event and the desired aesthetic, FASTSIGNS used a variety of signage materials including the use of vinyl, used in a number of different ways, to create a comprehensive suite of signage.

The Result

The directional signage that was placed within the Bentall Centre resulted in driving footfall to the event, helping to deliver a high attendance at the Summer Garden for the entirety of the event. All imagery and graphics were well received and effectively helped to create a relaxed, summery feeling that the organisers aimed to achieve.

How we helped the Royal Holloway student shop

The Challenge

The Royal Holloway Student Union had developed a new, on campus, shop for their student population, they required interior decor to effectively brand the space with the union’s core values and wayfinding signage solutions to help shop users locate in store products. As the building was purpose built, no exterior signage could be used, alternative signage solutions were required to fulfil this role.

The Solution

To assist with wayfinding, FASTSIGNS used foamex boards to create general point of sale items, including aisle indicators and racking toppers. Paper strips were created to adorn shelving and lightbox graphics were also employed. Large interior wall graphics were used to consolidate the union’s logo, branding and core values. These graphics were placed on large expanses of wall to ensure these features became a focal point of the shop’s interior decor. Old equipment, such as an ice cream fridge, was fully wrapped in vinyl to maintain the new aesthetic throughout the shop. The challenge of branding the new building externally, without using any exterior signage, was overcome through the use of vibrant printed graphics applied to acrylic on hanging wires, positioned just inside the windows to achieve the appropriate exterior branding.

The Result

Customers of the student union shop were easily able to locate products within the shop. Furthermore the effective use of colour in the point of sale displays injected additional visual interest to the interior decor. The Royal Holloway Student Union were impressed with the work and have ordered more signage since this project to help brand other areas of the student campus.
