No, the 'tour' I refer to was one completed by Signs & Lines' fitters Warren and Mark when they travelled to 'tour' Port Hedland and install signage for our client, FORM. And whether describing it as 'legendary' also violates the Trades Descriptions Act I can't possibly comment either!
All this aside, I managed to grab a chat with the project's Account Manager, Jesse French (one of the aforementioned musos, in fact), who kindly shared some details about the project...
WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE PROJECT, JESSE?: "We manufactured 3 bespoke three-faced wayfinding monoliths and 7 directional blade signs for the client, installing them in various Port Hedland locations. FORM provided the specification for the signage and we worked with them and an engineer to ensure that the signage was engineered and installed to wind category D3 standards."
WHY WAS SIGNS & LINES THE CHOSEN SIGNAGE CONTRACTOR?: "Originally the enquiry came as a result of social media engagement with one of FORM's designers. The client referenced some of the projects featured on our website and since our price was also competitive, we won the contract."
MATERIALS: "The wayfinding signs were custom-fabricated in 4mm aluminium and featured clear coated digital and vinyl graphics."
TECHNIQUES: "The specialist aluminium seam welding was extremely involved. Full marks to our fabricators!"
