Dr. Sticker wins Sign+ Award

Dr. Sticker has won the Sign+ award in the indoor signage category. This prestigious award, presented at Media Plaza Utrecht, is a biennial industry award for the sign and display sector organized by the Sign+ Magazine trade journal.

The Sign+ award has been a professional award since 2002 and was organized for the 7th time this year. Within this award, there are 5 categories: Indoor Signage, Outdoor Signage, Architectural Signage, Vehicle Lettering, Exhibition and Event Construction. Every company active in the sign industry can nominate its own project by a professional jury. For each category, the professional jury selects 2 or 3 nominees.
From these nominees, the professional jury announced on October 31, 2014, at a festive evening at Media Plaza Utrecht, that Dr. Sticker has won the Indoor Signage category with their project E-sites signage breda.

The Project

The new office of E-sites is located at the Triple O campus in Breda. The interior represents the enthusiasm of the internet and innovation. The core values of E-sites – 'together', 'continuous', and 'exceeding' – are reflected in the building. In short, a unique and inspiring office. The assignment was to depict the three core values using lines (2 white and 1 red) throughout the entire building (800 meters of lines). Starting from the staircase, running over floors and walls, distributed over two floors. The red and white sticker lines guide visitors through creative brainstorming rooms, test labs, and other inspiring spaces. In addition, various other signage has been applied; indication of spaces, glass doors/walls provided with glass films, and creating scrum boards (planning boards).
Comment from the professional jury: Bold concept, well thought out. With the use of relatively little material, a maximum effect has been achieved. In that sense, innovative. Not immediately impressive, but very functional and effective. Not only points the way but also connects in the building. Technically quite challenging due to the many different surfaces. Also, good thought has been given to the font, with open letters and strong color contrasts.
