Window Graphics & Signage for Woodroffe School

THE CLIENT

Woodroffe School, a prestigious comprehensive based in Lyme Regis, Dorset, was founded by local landowner and academic, Alban Woodroffe MBE.

In the early-1930s, Woodroffe presided over the building of the original hillside site of the school, with its breathtaking views of the harbour town of Lyme Regis. The school was first opened as a mixed grammar, enrolling students from the rural and coastal regions of West Dorset and East Devon.

Now, Woodroffe is a fully modern comprehensive school with a varied and balanced curriculum. As an important hub of learning in the area, the school looks to promote equality and inclusiveness, while making sure that every Woodroffe student has the chance to advance, develop and realize their full potential.

THE BRIEF

Creative Solutions have an ongoing relationship with Woodroffe School and have worked with them on a number of different design projects in the past; most recently, we provided them with a range of anti-slip floor stickers from our Social Distance Range.

On this occasion, Woodroffe wanted us to install a series of large printed images to be fixed in various positions around the school complex. These high-definition prints would depict students engaging in various educational experiences. 

We would also be supplying window graphics containing photographic-quality images and inspiring quotes. All of which would be fabricated and installed by the Creative Solutions team. 

THE SOLUTION

After an initial site visit, the design team was required to make a series of adjustments to the artwork that Woodroffe had supplied us—in order to fit the dimensions of their intended installation points.

For the windows at the front of the school, we provided a total of 9 different designs. We printed 3 sets of 3 different images with CMYK and white ink onto frosted vinyl and finished them with a matte laminate. The prints were then trimmed to their exact size and applied to the outside of the windows.

We also supplied another 4 designs for the windows of the hallway at the top of the car park. Again, the perfectly cut graphics were printed using the same ink, onto frosted vinyl and coated with a matte laminate finish. 

Finally, using the Creative Solutions scaffold tower, we installed 10 high-definition prints onto ramp panels at the rear of the school. These full-colour self-adhesive prints were finished with a matte laminate and applied to 3mm ACM skin board. The picture quality is of the highest order; even when the images are enlarged to that degree, they do not lose any of their definition or vibrancy. The client couldn’t have been happier with the results.

Here’s headteacher, Dan Watts, with his thoughts on the whole process:

“We have been and continue to be extremely impressed by the quality of service received from Creative Solutions. We have now engaged them in several projects and have always found the team to be both helpful and supportive.

The products received have been of the highest quality and where possible, the team have sought to find the most cost-effective solution, without compromising the quality.

The design team have been great when implementing our ideas and have responded positively to our feedback, never pushing us down their favoured route.

I would recommend Creative Solutions without hesitation or reservation. They are both a professional and dependable local company with whom we will continue to outsource our design-based work.”
