Bletchley Park Hoarding Signage
Bletchley Park is known as the home of code-breaking and played a vital role in World War II. It is also known as the birthplace of modern information technology.
Over the last 10 years it has undergone significant redevelopment as part of a 10 year masterplan that will ensure that continues to tell it's story to thousands of visitors that attend every year.
Over the past year the focus has been on the restoration of the Teleprinter building. Whilst this planned work was going on a series of hoardings were constructed to protect visitors from building work. Bletchley Park were keen to ensure that these unsightly hoardings could be put to good visual use, as an eye-catching display that would guide and educate visitors about the work that was going on. Signarama was invited to work in conjunction with Bletchley's design team, who provided the artwork.
At 19.5 metres long and on sloping ground, the hoarding presented quite a challenge. The graphics needed to follow the slope as well as be weather resistant. Signarama Milton Keynes' solution was to break the design down into 17 sections. Each section was printed onto outdoor vinyl and laminated to provide additional protection. The graphics were applied to pre-cut aluminium panels that were fixed directly to the hoarding.
