Bespoke Signage Project – Astra Zeneca

Parker Design Consultants in Cheshire were asked to create a bespoke signage project for Astra Zeneca in their Alderley Park reception area. AZ wanted to leave a legacy of their patented products, 25 in all, and we were asked to produce and install this ambitious project.

The Patented Wall

Our job was to create and install each and every patented product created by AstraZeneca, equalling 25 in total, onto a wall in their reception area. The reason for this was to show their legacy to everyone who enters th building at Alderley Park.

Each of the 25 patented medicines were made into hexagonal plaques that were individually printed with their own names and information onto brushed aluminium Dibond. The job at hand was a challenge to our team as each sign had to be placed completely flat, exactly 25mm away from the surface of an uneven brick wall.

Materials Used

To perfectly align every piece of signage, we created an 8 metre template of how the wall was going to look, then printed it onto a PVC banner. We placed the banner onto the wall as a guideline of where to fit the plaques so that they could sit in perfect position across the whole wall.

Parker Design came to us with the design for the whole wall and we recommended that the patented signs be made from Dibond material. The Dibond signs were made up of two 0.3mm thick brushed aluminium sheets, sandwiched together with a black pvc centre. Dibond is a very long lasting material and is printed on our UV press to give longer life to the printed graphics.
