Ravensbourne wayfinding mark 2 

Ravensbourne wayfinding mark 2 

27th July 2016

Six years ago to this very month we were onsite at Ravensbourne’s (then) brand new building at Greenwich Peninsula, busy implementing our award-winning wayfinding scheme created in partnership with johnson banks.

This week, we found ourselves back at the digital media and design college overseeing the installation of new brand signage - part of the rollout of their new brand instigated by incoming director Linda Drew.

Ravensbourne has worked with NB Studio - design partners of ours - on its new visual identity, which aims to prepare the college for its ambition to achieve full university status.
