The project timeline:
Appointed to by FaulknerBrowns to develop signage
Signage manufacture and installation
To create a striking focal point in the café, we applied a 3D-layered version of the people graphic developed for the project.
What Sarah said:
“This project exemplified the character and personality that signage can bring to a building, adding vibrant and colourful graphics to reflect NHS brand values – in this case, diversity.”

Designed by architects FaulknerBrowns, who led the design of the interior space for the SHA, the NHS England and NHS Improvement Head Office is part of an award-winning brown field site in Newcastle.
Artwork as a continuing visual feature
Using original artwork commissioned by NHS Property Services to denote diversity, Picto developed a graphic for application to the building’s walls and glazed partitions, and a manifestation for the office windows.
The specific feature graphics work as an integral part of the project’s interior design, defining the spaces within the three-storey building and denoting the office’s quiet workspaces and informal and formal meeting spaces.
Following DDA guidelines, a simple square format for the door signs displays both tactile and Braille graphics.
