Illuminating Excellence: The Case of 10th Planet's Bespoke Illuminated Signs
A bespoke illuminated sign for 10th Planet.
In the bustling market town of Brackley, nestled within the picturesque landscape of Northamptonshire, a striking transformation has taken place at 10th Planet, a martial arts academy renowned for its dynamic approach to self-defense and physical fitness. With their recent acquisition of new premises at 19 Wordsworth Close, an opportunity arose to redefine their space with an eye-catching custom illuminated sign that resonates with both the art and spirit of martial arts. The centrepiece of this transformation? A bespoke, internally illuminated signage, masterfully crafted by ourselves with over half a century of expertise in sign-making.
The brief was straightforward yet challenging: create an illuminated sign that was both visually stunning and energy-efficient. We our reputation for combining artistic flair with technical prowess, we were naturally the chosen architects for this venture. The objective was to construct a 2.65m x 1.44m aluminium disc, adorned with digitally printed graphics, a beacon of modern design infused with traditional values.
Design and Creation
The journey from concept to creation was a collaboration of artistic minds. Our graphic design team worked in concert with artwork supplied by 10th Planet, ensuring the final design was not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable and manufacturable. The use of LED illumination was a strategic choice, offering low running costs without compromising on the luminescence essential for capturing the essence of the academy.
Location and Impact
Strategically placed within the premises, the sign serves as more than just a marker of identity; it’s a visual embodiment of 10th Planet’s ethos. Its placement indoors ensures maximum impact upon visitors and students alike, enhancing the academy’s brand visibility and reinforcing its identity. In a space where the physical and the philosophical intertwine, the sign stands as a testament to the academy’s commitment to excellence.
Feedback and Benefits
The response from 10th Planet and its clientele was unequivocally positive. The academy was delighted with the final product, a sentiment echoed by their students and visitors. The signage has not just met but exceeded expectations, adding a new dimension to the academy’s interior and harmonising with its architectural aesthetics. This project exemplifies how thoughtfully designed signage can elevate a space, enhancing both brand visibility and customer engagement.
Challenges and Triumphs
Navigating the complexities of bespoke design, we employed advanced manufacturing techniques, including laser cutting, to realise the intricate design. This innovative approach underscores our company’s adaptability and commitment to delivering solutions that meet unique client needs.
Conclusion and Future Prospects
The project’s success lies not just in the creation of a visually captivating sign but in the demonstration of our ability to blend art with technology. The signage at 10th Planet is not merely a fixture; it’s a lasting emblem of quality and creativity, a beacon that will illuminate the academy’s path for years to come. This project stands as a testament to our enduring legacy in the realm of sign-making, a legacy that continues to evolve with each masterpiece they create.
