Lightboxes Brighten Penguin Books Reception

About the Project

Penguin Publishing
80 Strand, London WC2
Faithdean Plc
Penguin's various brands promoted in light box display

Main contractor Faithdean Plc and workplace design firm AOS Studley were employed to revamp the reception area of Penguins headquarters. To the publishing company this area was all about displaying the books. Penguin’s brief was clear: “They didn’t want it to be too corporate.”

GP Systems was added to the team to help create the strong sense of branding. This was not only achieved via manifestations of glazing but within the receptions main feature - a book display.

It was a fitting conclusion to the teams success when the final project was featured in the ‘On Office Magazine’ Feb 2008…

Penguin logos appeared throughout refurbishment

After testing and approvals, GP Systems was in a position to put the Penguin brands onto vinyl, which was designed to maximise the effect of the light boxes.

For the construction of this display to be successful, high levels of communication was required from all teams involved.

GP Systems worked closely with Faithdean’s joinery team and project manager to ensure that the display was completed to the high specifications.

“GP Systems provided a very thorough and professional service from start to finish satisfying the clients exacting requirements.“Gregg Smith (Contracts Manager) Faithdean Plc
Penguin logos welcome visitors to reception

The reception doors promoted the publisher’s world famous brand still further and together with opening times is a welcoming feature for visitors.

Downsized logos, in the form of manifestations of glazing, appear on all perimeter glass confirming Penguin’s ownership of this building.

This project demonstrates GP Systems’ commitment to providing real value at key stages of design, project management and installation whilst working as members of a team.

“I appreciate your flexibility and quick turn-round on the project”John Symes (AOS Studley International)
