The project

The Village, a hostel in Sydney’s Surry Hills, asked us to produce a range of signage for their newly updated space. As part of a rebrand The Village (represented by Union Studio) were looking for a range of way-finding signage leaning heavily on timber with occasional tones of metal.

The process

Union studio provided us with designs and a clear direction – engraved plywood for interior signage and engraved stainless steel for exterior. We created an illuminated timber sign for the entrance to ensure maximum street exposure, day and night. Blackboard vinyl strips allow for daily staff updates to the ‘What’s on’ message board.

The outcome

This project saw the use of a number of materials throughout the venue, (namely timber, vinyl & metal), and the simplicity of the design helped to provide a consistent aesthetic throughout.
