Leading local charity, St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth, has a new look for their charity shop portfolio thanks to local sign makers Signs Express (Plymouth). St Luke's who, in the last 12 months, cared for over 3,531 people in the local community with a life-limiting illness, were in need of a local sign maker to help them with their newest re-brand. The task was part of a bigger project to roll out a re-brand of all 30 shops located across Devon and Cornwall.
St Luke’s current shop signage had been in place for many years, had no uniformity and was becoming to look tired and out of date in keeping with the modern high street. The re-brand gave the charity an opportunity to address the uniformity, add a new contemporary look and incorporate each shop into local community it serves.
"We have been a client of Sign Express (Plymouth) for 5 years. Each project they have worked on has had exceptional quality and we can really push the creative and material boundaries with them. When deciding on who to do this vast re-brand, we knew we could trust Signs Express as they have taken the time to understand our values, what our brand stands for and the sensitive areas and challenges a medical environment may present to their fitters."
The project took is almost complete and has taken just over 2 months, with installation of the initial 14 shops taking 2 weeks. Signs Express Plymouth worked closely with the St Luke’s designer to help come up with a fresh and clean logo whilst also ensuring the materials used were to suit their budget which in turn was integral with the branding.
The signage consisted of a combination of aluminium composite tray signs with digitally printed graphics and aluminium composite flat panels depending on the shop front installed.
"On a selection of some of our new shops, Signs Express have also assisted with delivering internal branding, from a very distinctive till feature wall using stand-off acrylic, to incorporating our care messages to highlight to the customer the link between their purchase and the difference it has made to our care. The guys really delivered on this project."
"St Luke’s is a fantastic charity and we are proud to be able to support them. We understand as a charity, our signage solutions must be cost effective to ensure every available penny is spent on patient care. We also like to do our bit to support them through charitable fundraising events, these have included sailing and cycling challenges. It is good to feel part of the local community and helping towards such a worthwhile cause."
