The brief, to create a colourful visual display with the historical moments plotted along the timeline.
Working with Sanchuri Design, who created the concept and provided artwork, Harrisons Signs manufactured and installed the timeline at Nestlé’s Insight Centre in York.
All 31 roundals were produced from 5mm opal acrylic and mounted onto foamex which housed the 12v LED tape. The black trunking hid the external wiring, forming part of the design to the timeline.
To keep the focus on the actual image the roundals were put through the printer and covered in white ink which blocked out the light on the outer ring. A second run through the printer produced the vibrant inner graphics. Gloss laminate was then applied to the outer ring to create the colourful borders.
Plot cut vinyl lettering was applied directly to the wall at various positions across the span of the new display, pinpointing the year and headlining the event.
An impactful display that shares special moments in time – There’s so much to say when a company has 150 years of history and they do say a picture paints a thousand words!
