Signs and Branding for a Child Care Academy, should be as clear, eye catching and attractive as the signage for any business.
When Signs PDQ got the sign job with Noah’s Ark Child Care Academy, located in Euclid, Ohio, they had a clear vision for their signage and branding. Noah’s Ark has given a lot of thought to exactly what is best for the children in their care, what they stand for as a company and about their brand.
Noah’s Ark Child Care Academy, opened in 2015 when Otis Thomas, encouraged by his mentor, chose to open a childcare academy committed to caring for, keeping safe and teaching children from 6 weeks of age, up through young school age children.
Before this Euclid, Ohio Child Care Academy opened their doors they took great care to understand exactly what parents demanded in a child care facility, what teachers needed the children to be prepared for once they reached school age. Just as importantly, they considered what would be most beneficial to the children for whom they would care each day.
Noah’s Ark Child Care Academy takes their business and their clients very seriously, and we’re grateful that they do. At Signs PDQ, many of us are also parents, we know how important it is to have a safe, caring and positive environment for children. Noah’s Ark’s branding and signage needed to be convey this message.
We understood and fully appreciated the vision of the folks at the Noah’s Ark, and fully agreed that we needed to have several important factors in mind when choosing their signs, sign materials, sign types and consolidating their branding message.
Here are just a few of the main points that were important to Noah’s Ark Child Care Academy and to Signs PDQ.
- Safety – Yes, our signs are safe, but anything that could even possibly be easily pulled, peeled, etc was not an option for Noah’s Ark’s signage.
- Security – Signage is very important for a child care facility, but it must never block the staff’s view of any possible danger.
- Visibility – Signs always need to be visible and clear. This is how any business gets noticed.
- Attractiveness – Not only did the signs need to be clear, they needed to be attractive, colorful and welcoming to both, children and their parents.
After having many discussions, taking many measurements, working within their budget and procuring proper permits, we set about our work.
Branding through signage
Noah’s Ark is located in a free standing building at 567 E 200th Street in Euclid, Ohio. The Academy has large inviting windows allowing passers by to see inside to certain common areas of the building. These windows also allow staff to easily see outside and monitor the parking lot.
The glass front doors of the academy have window graphics and lettering displaying the business name, phone number and hours of operation, as well as the logo. All while keeping with the Noah’s Ark theme. The entire window graphic, including the animals and the waves, are color matched throughout the design.
The window graphics across the front of the building’s windows are a perfect place to add character to this building and warm it up for the kids. The animal characters and the ocean waves attract attention, making the building easier to notice. It’s no coincidence that the kids love it, too.
The three building facades across the front of the main structure hold a series of backlit signs displaying the name of the company, along with the colorful window graphics. The backlit signs on the building, bring the entire look together. The images below show the building without signs, the inner workings of the back lit signs. The far right image shows the sign being custom created.
