The Client

All Signs Bristol for the YMCA, Erdington, Birmingham

The Opportunity

To add visual interest reflecting the corporate colours of the YMCA to the entrance to the Chris Bryant Centre, a new wing of the YMCA complex in Erdington, Birmingham, prior to the official opening by HRH Princess Anne.

The Solution

All Signs chose Contra Vision ® Performance™ 20% transparency perforated window film, applied externally to the entrance to the building.  Bold colours were chosen to reflect the corporate colours of the YMCA, which are also used across the architecture of the new building.

All Signs chose Contra Vision® Performance™ 20% transparency perforated window film applied externally to the entrance to the building, incorporating bold colours to reflect the corporate identity of the YMCA, which are extended across the architecture of the new building.

This material was chosen selected to ensure through-vision for visitors and staff inside the building and to create a strong, vibrant and welcoming entrance to the site for at least the next three years.

The Chris Bryant Centre is a cafe and multi-use training centre in an impressive YMCA campus that includes accommodation for over 100 people. The site’s spectacular modern design and vibrant colours have created an impressive architectural landmark in Erdington.

Kevin Willis, Business Development Manager, All Signs commented,

‘The YMCA brand is associated with community, care, service and fun. By using Contra Vision® Performance™ to badge the entrance to this new building, we were able to create a strong visual message reflecting the organisation's values. The material was easy to print and apply, working to timescales which ensured the entrance was vibrant and welcoming not just for its official opening but for years to come’.
