The Guinness Partnership is a national provider of housing based in High Wycombe.  They have been providing affordable housing across the country for over 100 years and currently employ over 2000 staff.

In August 2008 Signs Now won a tender to undertake new corporate signs for their new branding across 14 Guinness offices nationally. Some of the reasons we won this tender not only included price and value for money but more importantly it was that we could demonstrate our Quality Systems, Health & Safety procedures, Insurances, Qualifications and our capability to undertake National Coverage all In-House.

Professional Corporate & Office Sign Makers

This vast project was to implement signs based upon new branding across the different regions of Guinness each of which had their own colours and identities.  We surveyed all sites and during meetings advised upon the best ways of achieving their aims.  Each site was very different and a wide range of signs were required from interior acrylic and window graphics to freestanding signs and monoliths.

Once we had agreed the signs we were then given the artwork for each region so we could produce full proof drawings for every sign.  All the artwork for this national signage was (and still is) produced in one office which means that we can ensure consistency which ever region is being done.

After approval was given and fabrication commenced we then presented full install schedules with contact details so we and each office knew what was happening and when.  Communication is very important with jobs of this scale.  All the corporate signs were produced and installed by in-house employees.
