Project Description

The Oakbridge Federation encourages, as well as promotes, the very best traditional values. They pride themselves on their ability to achieve better than average results across the board. Crucial to this success is the excellent behaviour and positive thinking that they actively encourage from all their pupils. Above all else, they have high expectations from both pupils and staff. Achieving high levels of reading, writing and mathematics for all their pupils are key priorities.

The school’s nurturing commitment in encouraging their children to persevere in their aspirations, show respect to others, be responsible learners and to always try their best is paramount to life at Oakbridge.

The Challenge

To give the school a presence from the outside at all entrances. Very little signage existed which also did not reflect the new identity of the school. The Forster Park Campus has two entrances but very little opportunity to position large signs. Rangefield Campus has a large frontage but any signs need to be applied to the existing fencing rather than be free-standing.

The Solution

The biggest challenge was the position and fixing of the signs rather than the design and production. The brand was used to great effect where the roundel burst out of the main sign and had a 3D appearance creating an immediate visual impact. The strong corporate colours were used to really endorse the relevant school campus and their individual identities. Simple typography was incorporated to display the school details clearly for visitors to the school. Effective use of the school brand and good positioning of the signs have led to a successful solution.
