Partnering with FASTSIGNS means more than just running an exciting and dynamic business. It can also mean you’ll attract the attention of some pretty serious clients!
Having that one, big high-profile client who sends big projects your way for years to come is gold dust for any business. FASTSIGNS Kingston scooped themselves our Project of the Year award back in 2019 for just such a contract with Legoland in Windsor which saw them delivering an innovative range of signage right across the theme park.
Legoland could not have been happier with the work that was carried out, so it was only natural that they would approach FASTSIGNS Kingston again for their next big project.
As part of their 90th birthday celebrations, Legoland commissioned design specialist Katapult to carry out a full brand refresh of all their sites worldwide. Of course, this new “Rebuild the World” initiative, as it came to be called, required each theme park to replace much of its existing graphics and signage.
A huge challenge in itself, but here was the kicker: all the new sites were set to launch the same weekend, so the project absolutely had to be completed on time, and exactly to spec, or the whole worldwide project would be in jeopardy.
With such a large scope in front of them, Legoland turned to a partner who had already shown they could deliver on their promises. FASTSIGNS Kingston were commissioned to replace and update 60 different window graphics, install dozens of flags, banners, and internal graphics, and create new wayfinding signs right across the theme park.
The creative process:
We’re sure we don’t need to tell you just how high expectations were on this project as Legoland is one of the world’s most recognisable brands and their Windsor theme park is considered one of the most popular in the UK. The FASTSIGNS Kingston team had to use every ounce of their creative and technical expertise to deliver an incredible result – especially when it came to the absolute deadline they were working up against.
The client not only required a quick and efficient delivery, but also a range of solutions which would maximise the impact of the new signage. Thanks to their experience and expertise, and to the advanced techniques available to them through the FASTSIGNS franchise, the Kingston team were able to create signage, which was not only highly effective, but contributed to the overall aesthetic of the brand.
To make it work, the team used a variety of cutting-edge materials and processes and were able to deliver an exceptionally high standard of work which is sure to boost their reputation with Legoland even further.
