Paul Turner Displays has helped Lancashire law firm Harrison Drury with its move to stunning new offices in the heart of Preston’s professional district. The firm, which was established over 100 years ago, provides a range of legal services for businesses as well as private individuals.
Paul Turner Displays (PTD) was briefed with a complex project due to Harrison Drury’s new Grade II listed office being located within a conservation district. It needed meticulous thought and consideration of the type of signage that would work and remain in keeping with the historic status of the area.
Working with the branding and design team of Harrison Drury’s retained PR and communications advisers, Freshfield, and in consultation with Preston City Council, PTD was able to remove all the signage from the old office and reuse most of it in the new location, leading to cost savings.
PTD also developed and installed a series of new office signage including:
- Covering all the downstairs windows with etch effect vinyl in keeping with the age of the building.
- Contour cutting the reception sign out of 10mm white acrylic and fixing it on raised studs behind the reception desk giving a very effective and modern 3D effect.
- Producing a bespoke engraved plaque in stainless brushed steel for the outside of the building.
- Reusing the existing ‘Partner’ acrylics name plates as well as adding new names
On the project, Samit Nayi, Freshfield’s branding and design director, comments, “In any new office move, the signage is a dominant representation of a company’s progression and image. Paul and his team developed a first rate solution and helped us overcome some tricky planning restrictions. The client is delighted.”
