International Airlines Group Cargo - which incorporates British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia, Vueling and Level - has rebranded, with Signbox fulfilling a brief for a new signage scheme across workspaces at London Heathrow and hubs in Dublin and Madrid. The solution incorporated external signage, wayfinding, environmental graphics, manifestation and safety signs.
The airside, high security buildings feature new high-rise external installed during the 'Beast from the East' weather.
IAG Cargo's external signage comprised direct-to-surface printed ACM trays manufactured using a Durst P10 with HP latex-printed and laminated vinyl graphics completing the external cladding elements. Internal signs were printed using a HP Latex 3650 on Metamark high-tack with a scratch resistant over-laminate.
The manifestation graphics were produced using Metamark digital frost that was HP printed and CAD cut on a Zund S3, while LG Class O fire-certified high-tack wall vinyl was used to create a series of environmental graphics. Statutory signage and secondary wayfinding were formed from direct-to-surface printed acrylic.
Meeting room walls were treated with Idea Paint to serve as large dry wipe areas that were customised further to serve as AV presentation walls. To do so, 12mm thick black and grey Valchromat MDF panels were routed on our Tekcel EXR CNC and clad onto a carcass of fire-rated 18mm thick plywood. We then supplied and installed 65" monitors and associated cabling to complete these eye-catching feature walls.
