Revamping Cambridge’s Extraordinary Objects gallery

Extraordinary Objects, a gallery on Green Street in Cambridge, was launching a new exhibition of fossils, artworks and other artefacts. The owner called in Bright Signs for signage to display information about the artefacts (without detracting from the pieces), as well as a solution for coordinating the heating and cooling units with the rest of the space. The customer also wanted to increase their presence on the street.

The brief

Coordinate the radiator and air-conditioning unit to match the walls of the gallery, displaying large quotes, information and pricing details next to the artefacts. Use signage to boost gallery and exhibition visibility to passers-by on the street outside.

What we did

We colour-matched a paint to the gallery’s wall, printing onto a cast wrap vinyl (Arlon SLX+) for the air con and heating units. Clear matte vinyl stickers were made to display information, while for outside, we created a large, hanging PVC banner and pavement advertising A-Board.

The outcome

The new-look units blended seamlessly with the rest of the gallery. This approach also meant the customer can easily switch the colour in future. Minimal wall graphic stickers did the job, without distracting from the pieces on display, while the banner and A-board attracted customers.
