The annual Signs Express Sign Excellence awards see all of their 80 franchisee centres across the UK and Ireland invited to enter. The awards give the centres in the network an opportunity to be fully recognised for their work during the year. With the competition open to all, standards were high and each franchisee had to ensure they put forward their very best and most creative designs and installation projects from the past 12 months.

Split into four categories – Interior, Exterior, Vehicle and Project, the awards are independently judged by industry experts, British Sign & Graphics Association (BSGA) director David Catanach and Sign Directions’ Magazine editor Val Hurst.

Against stiff competition, centre manager of Signs Express (Grantham) Ian Charles and his team were awarded the top spot for their design, build and installation of an exterior totem sign for Nottingham Regeneration Ltd. The sign was given exceptional praise from the judges being described as their ‘absolute favourite! Attractive, well conceived and totally at home in its surroundings.’

Commenting on his award Ian said “We are very honoured to receive such a highly acclaimed award which recognises the hard work that went into achieving the architect’s vision for the Provident Works site. I would personally like to thank my dedicated team for all of their hard work, particularly on this project, but also for their continued efforts.”

The bespoke totem was constructed to show the Nottingham skyline and to ensure the lettering stood out, the skilled team hand-painted each letter in striking red, reflecting the logo of Nottingham Regeneration Ltd. Installed over just 4 working days, the completed modern signage compliments the extensive upgrading of the Provident Works grade II listed building.

Based on the London Road Industrial Estate, Signs Express (Grantham) provides a wide range of signage solutions to businesses large and small around Grantham and surrounding areas. From interior/exterior signage to vehicle and window graphics, health and safety signs and exhibition displays, Ian and his team will provide state-of-the-art material with their exceptional customer service.
