The Printworks

What We Did

  • Illuminated all Printworks tenants signage with VL Plus modules
  • Brought the 8 meter wide Hard Rock Café guitar to life with yellow FlexiBRITE on the strings and around the perimeter
  • Negotiated an unprecedented 5-year parts and labor warranty on all SloanLED products used

The guitar is like a beacon!

Task

Illuminate all exterior tenant and venue signage for the historic The Printworks building in Manchester City Centre, UK.

Solution

Yellow FlexiBRITE was used to illuminate the perimeter of the 8 meter wide Hard Rock Café guitar, and to create the guitar's six strings. A mixture of VL Plus long, short, and HB short modules were used to light tenant and venue signs.

Results

The results impressed all involved, and contributed to the awarding of an "Illuminated Sign of the Year Award" by BSGA British Sign Awards to sign maker IS Group for the Hard Rock Café signage.
