Project Description

Grinling Gibbons Primary school is part of the Grinling Gibbons and Lucas Vale (GGLV) Federation. The goals and ambitions of the staff and governors is to make sure that they are at the forefront of innovative learning experiences, ensuring they deliver a world class education for all of their children.

Grinling Gibbons Primary School is a diverse learning community that provides the best possible support in helping its pupils to achieve their best. Pupils and staff are highly motivated and firmly believe in learning together, in partnership with families. Children are at the centre of their priorities. They are a values based community striving to ensure they develop the education of the whole child. Their creative curriculum is designed to foster curiosity and develop motivation and habits that encourage their children to be life long learners.

The Challenge

The existing signage program at Grinling Gibbons lacked an identity and impact and just merged into the background. Pylon’s challenge was to give the school a presence and let visitors, passers by, children, staff and parents that we are here. Signs are to portray a message and endorse what the school is about and the old signs lacked these crucial focal points.

The Solution

Replacing the existing signs with new, bigger panels and posts, fresh graphics, bolder typography and colours, taken from the new Grinling Gibbons logo, Pylon produced a solution that had the required immediate impact reflecting a positive, confident, professional and exciting school. Pylon implemented a consistent style for all the signs creating a strong recognition using the new anchor logo predominantly and the corporate colours. The signs were produced as a tray format to give a 3D effect and anti-vandal film used over the fascia of the sign and positioned as high as possible to avoid tampering. They have given the school the identity and presence previously lacking.
