Drayton Manor’s new Tamarin Trail Signage

This weekend saw the grand unveiling of Drayton Manor’s new Tamarin Trail – where visitors can get up close and personal with some very cheeky monkeys.

It was fantastic for us to see so much interest in the new attraction with press and blogger ambassadors in attendance and now reporting how great it is!

Our signs have taken centre stage in the resulting coverage and Drayton Manor’s design team has been hugely appreciative of our work. We’re very grateful to have been set the challenge of bringing the fun and colourful designs to life.

While  the end result for us has been a quirky and light-hearted sign, work behind the scenes has been deadly serious to ensure our client’s vision has been turned into a reality.

Our team has risen to the challenge, working around the clock to ensure a seamless finish for the 3.1m by 2m sign.

We used a combination of materials including dense foam, a high-build filler, primer and finishing coat. We mixed and decided on colours to fit our brief.

Everything was painstakingly shaped by hand, finished with a top coat and hand painted.

We’ve loved working on this job and hope visitors at the Tamarin Trail enjoy it as much as we’ve relished such a cute project.

You could even say we have gone bananas!
