Outdoor and Indoor Signage for Cavanna Homes

THE CLIENT

Established in the early-1920s as an entirely family-run business, Cavanna Homes is now one of the largest independent house building firms in the South West. Despite their vast expansion over the last century, the company remains committed to their simple principles: building elegant, long-lasting properties using the finest materials available. 

THE BRIEF

Long-term clients Cavanna Homes contacted the team here at Creative Solutions looking for an extensive range of outdoor and indoor signage for the sales office at Hillhead Farm in Bude, Cornwall—one of Cavanna’s new development sites. 

We’d be providing a wide scope of products from our range; all of which would follow the firm’s strict brand guidelines and our own impeccably high standards when it comes to visual displays and printed signage.

We’re always delighted to forge and maintain working relationships with large South West-based construction firms like Cavanna. For a job like this, when there are multiple design elements to consider, it’s comforting for the client to know that we can take care of everything. Creative can make the whole process straightforward and will always guarantee a first-rate product. From acrylic posters and post-mounted signs, to mini pylon signs and flags, Creative will always deliver quality.

For Cavanna Homes, it was vital that each graphic design element reflected their status as trusted, professional house builders and, in turn, the signage needed to project that image to potential buyers. Equally, it was important that both the external and internal signage remained consistent with the Cavanna brand, both in terms of graphics and colour schemes.

THE SOLUTION

The first step was an initial visit to the Hillhead Farm development site in Bude, Cornwall. Here we would discuss and confirm the client’s brief to ensure their needs were met and that we could hit the deadlines for the opening of the new sales office. 

We provided an extensive range of outdoor and indoor signage products—all of which were created and installed by the Creative team and followed the client’s own strict brand guidelines.

Two full-colour printed pylon signs were installed in the grass area at the front of the site—these consisted of 3mm aluminium trays with 200mm returns. We were also able to install a mini pylon sign in the sales area, which, again, came as a 3mm aluminium tray with 200mm returns. Also on the grassy area, we supplied three printed post-mounted double-sided signs displaying various initiatives for Cavanna homebuyers; including Part Exchange & Move Assist as well as a Show Home Opening Soon sign. These signs measured 1200mm by 800 and came with 50mm square white posts and post caps.

More printed post-mounted double-sided signs were installed in the office forecourt; the Visitors Parking and a Thanks For Visiting display were also supplied with 50mm square posts and post caps to secure them firmly into place. 

For maximum visual impact, we also installed ten branded flags in various outdoor locations, all of which were fixed onto 6m flagpoles. These unique displays can be viewed from miles around and do a great job of attracting potential customers. 

A hugely popular product for commercial displays because of their rigidity and flexibility of use, we were also able to supply a range of full-colour print self-adhesive ACM signs with matte laminate finish for the client. This included an A3 branded sign with the company logo, three About Us signs, one 1200 by 800mm Site Plan, and a House Builder award panel. All of these signs were installed in the office itself and were supplied with the satin chrome stand-off locators for a modern, stylish aesthetic.

Meanwhile, we also installed eight House Type posters, printed onto A3 190gsm silk poster paper for a superior quality finish. The office was also furnished with a custom Cavanna clock; full-colour printed onto self-adhesive matte laminate 3mm ACM 0.3 mm skin board and cut into the circular shape of a clock. The display came with a clock movement, a push-fit round shaft with a 15.7mm spindle length.

Cavanna’s Mission Statement sign was direct printed in full colour with white onto the reverse of a 5mm clear cast acrylic glass-effect label. The sign measured 210 by 148mm and the edges were flame polished with no radius corners for a contemporary, visually striking finish. The display came with two 11mm fixing holes at each end for satin chrome stand-off locators.

Moving outside again, we supplied the client with an Eco-Swinger pavement sign with full-colour, matte laminated print applied to both sides, as well as a fire assembly point sign; another full colour self-adhesive print with matte laminate applied to 3mm ACM 0.3mm skin board.

And finally, we provided the client with an opening hours, phone number and email change on the office windows and a lozenge to the left of the doors with the site name; an MD5A full colour print with a stunning matte laminate cut to shape on vinyl plotter. 

A vast array of different signage options, then. Cavanna Homes were delighted that we could tackle each element of the design brief to an impeccably high standard. A big job, done right.
