Paul Turner Displays has worked closely with the headmaster of Smithills School to stun pupils with the surprise unveiling of a positivity and confidence campaign across the school.
The project involved designing and producing exterior and interior banners with inspirational messages along with brochures and a DVD outlining the school’s achievements and aspirations.
Paul Turner Displays, working closely with design agency Wash Design, produced mesh and PVC banners for the exterior of the building as well as for key areas within the school. The installation was interesting, as some of the very tricky locations on exterior stairwells had to be fitted using a 16m cherry picker! Also, the school did not want any holes in their walls so all the interior banners were applied using a variety of hidden fixings.
Initially the plan was for a two-day installation but by doubling the fitting workforce and stretching the working day to late evening all the banners were fitted in one day.
Following this, to further increase the profile and image of the school, it expanded its ‘positivity’ campaign by negotiating the use of an empty shop in the Bolton Shopping Centre for two weeks, free of charge. Paul Turner Displays was responsible for the production and installation of hanging banners and vinyl graphics displaying Smithills School’s achievements to be viewed by the public in Bolton.
