As part of the refurbishment of the Trust's schools, Little Gem Creative have been responsible for creating environmental graphics and managing the installs.
Robert Smyth Academy
Market Harborough, Leicestershire
Inspirational and innovative people throughout history
We created graphics and signage for the sixth form lounge and computer suite. The theme for the graphics was 'Inspirational and innovative people throughout history'.
To keep images from different sources consistent, we created a linear halftone effect on the photographic imagery so that they sat in harmony with the historic etchings of the pre-1950's portraits. A distressed paper texture was used for the background of the more historic portraits to give an aged look and feel and the treatment of typography and images was brought together with the use of the Robert Smyth Academy school's colour palette.
Computer Suite Graphics
With a focus on innovative people throughout history, this stylistic image effect was used to show the portraits clearly within the middle of the images and pixelated as you get to the edges, which links in with the graphics being situated in the school's computer suite. A brand colour gradient was also added to create this unique style.
