New Victoria Hospital – Kingston on Thames
Hotel Quality Signs for a top class Private Hospital
As with all Private Hospitals, it was important to the New Victoria Hospital that their signs were not only clear and concise, but that they were also easy to clean and reflect the quality of the hospital. Although it is important that their patients are able to find their way around the hospital, they wanted to convey a homely feel and so did not want the signs to be over powering.
We worked closely with the Capital Projects team, visiting them on site on several occasions, to ensure a design which was sympathetic to the surroundings but still visible to those seeking them. As the hospital had recently re-branded, it was vital that these signs tied in with the brand guidelines to ensure brand continuity. Knowing hospitals as well as we do, we were able to advise on a solution which would be easy for the hospital to update and amend should they ever need to change the use of a room or a room name.
It was essential that the Theatre signs could withstand deep cleans and be compatible with the infection control policy. So all of these were laminated to ensure that they could withstand the high temperatures required.
Over a two day period, we lovingly installed over 250 signs at the hospital.
