The Innovation Award 2017The Acardian by HNS Signs
The Arcadian/Hippodrome multi-media signage project by HNS Signs in Birmingham was a huge project, that involved over 58 large scale signs, mostly completed by hand in a total of 853 man hours – mainly in the cold days and nights of November. HNS combined new thinking with traditional techniques to achieve a signage solution that delivered something more emotive than would be possible with aluminium trays and decals. The use of projected artwork and sharpie outlining by hand prior to hand painting, particularly of the 30m wide building sign, demonstrated the creative combination of new technology and traditional skills.

Having made the move into the outdoor graphics arena about 7 years ago, Epson has again pushed the boundaries of quality, productivity, reliability, ease of use and low running costs with a new range of the SureColor signage printers. Completely re-engineered from the ground up the latest S series range also features a new, quicker drying ink set with wider colourgamet and the options of spot red, orange, white and metallic.
