Pomeroys Old Brewery Inn.

This sign graphics portfolio is a selection of graphic signage and wayfinding projects. Signs attract with their graphical imagery while presenting eye-catching looks and content that fits with the overall brand expression.

The visual representation of companies and organisations and their corporate identity systems—whether for interior retail displays, or exterior wayfinding, promotions or vehicle graphic artworks on-the-move—this is always one of the important components in the overall marketing communications mix. This presentation of beautifully designed signs, posters, billboards and murals shows how sign graphics are a key component for every brand to have a powerful visual presence makes a strong first impression and is memorable.

We are visually surrounded by signs, cut vinyls, banners, billboards, murals and digital signage screens, it is the role of good graphic design to ensure our client’s “brand signal” is perceived clearly through this background noise.

For MagentaDot Brands the responsibility of designing attractive and useful signage is never a matter of slapping together an expedient bridge between our client’s brands and their market or audiences, the aim is always to make the experience of crossing that bridge a rewarding one. Just as colour is its own reward, that is what unites the sign design projects presented in this portfolio.
