Our Services From Concept to Completion: How We Support You
At Glyphics, we understand that signage is not just about visibility - it's about vision. That's why every endeavour begins with a candid conversation about your business goals and ends with bespoke solutions that embody your brand values - crafted via collaborative creativity, critical thinking and balancing practicality with aesthetics in our builds. Here's more on how we help:
SIGN MAKING & INSTALLATION
Whether your goal is to implement navigational cues or make a bold branding statement, we'll strategise the most effective way to bring your message to life with our considerable range of bespoke solutions. From heritage techniques to contemporary builds - we fabricate signs customised to your style and needs, handling every facet of your project to finish. Inside or out, our skilled installation team ensures minimal disruption to your venue and optimal placement of your signage.
DECIPHERING SPACES & WAYFINDING SYSTEMS
With 30 years of experience crafting signs for a variety of environments, we’ve developed an expertise in spatial design too - mapping out intuitive, user-friendly wayfinding systems, developed to guide visitors while enriching their overall experience. Once the most effective flow of footfall has been identified, we meticulously calculate the dimensions for your desired sign posting solutions and select the ideal materials for your space, transforming conceptual pathways into tangible realities.
PRODUCT DESIGN, BRAND IDENTITY & ART DIRECTION
Every sign, project, campaign and brand has a story behind it and shares the need for a cohesive visual language - whatever the scope of your brief, we provide an end-to-end design service to help find that compelling voice and build that narrative. From conceptualising high-level ideas to drawing up the details, such as custom fonts or logo work, we aren’t afraid to push creative boundaries while allowing practicality to ground us - ensuring our work is both fun and feasible.
Whether it's through providing insightful consultations or crafting bespoke signs, we’re here to offer services that resonate with your requirements and exceed your expectations, establishing connections that we hope will flourish well into the future. We strive to build relationships that are as robust as our signage, with a healthy record of repeat clientele. Here's what they say:

We work with you to choose the most appropriate materials and methods to suit your sign’s purpose and locale.

The timeline to create a custom sign depends on factors such as the complexity of the design, the materials and methods used, and the installation requirements. Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements, our team will provide you with an estimated schedule. Generally, we aim to complete projects within 1-3 weeks. This really does vary based on the specifics and scope of the project but rest assured our goal is to bring your vision to life as swiftly as possible to your optimal timeframe, while maintaining our high sign making standards and a smooth installation process.
Whether your concept is in its infancy or fully developed, we’re here to bring your envisioned design to life. We'll be happy to provide advice on the optimal methods and materials to ensure the finished product aligns seamlessly with your expectations.
Sure. Typically, our installation team manages fit-outs, particularly when specialist skills are required, as well as to ensure optimal placement and impact. If you choose to oversee the installation, we can arrange delivery of your signage through reliable couriers, or you have the option to pick it up directly from our studio in Shoreditch. Whatever your preference, we are flexible and committed to accommodating your needs, ensuring a seamless and positive experience.
Absolutely. Though London is our home base and where a large proportion of our projects are, our reach extends to organisations all across the UK. We are also fully equipped to cater to entities operating across multiple sites, ensuring consistent quality and design at each venue, and have successfully collaborated with installers and other sign makers globally to orchestrate comprehensive global rebrands, synchronising our efforts to achieve cohesive and superior outcomes. Whether you’re based in the City or elsewhere, our steadfast commitment to quality and dedication is unwavering, regardless of location.
We began crafting intuitive and user-friendly wayfinding schemes as a passion a few decades ago. Today, it's become a specialism that's integral to our service portfolio, and a challenge we thoroughly enjoy with the help of our clients. The best way to start the process is to get in contact with us with any prior information you might have i.e. up-to-date floor plans, branding ideas and any thoughts you may have on the type of signage you'd like. This allows us to visualise themes, annotate directions and position signage on paper. If the site is complex or large, a more in-depth assessment of the space is often required so we're happy to arrange a site visit - a walkabout then allows for a comprehensive evaluation of the area and a detailed discussion about your specific requirements.
