After recently completing a great little project, converting an existing stand alone hydrotherapy pool into a children’s sensory room, I suggested the addition of some new signs to direct and engage the children before entering the new building.
The whole idea of the sensory room is to stimulate the children, all who have some special needs and to allow lot’s of interaction and development through play.
My aim was to not only direct the children with their parents or carers, but to provide a level of stimulation well before they enter the room. I designed three different signs to guide the children from the car park to the sensory room itself, deliberately using bright colours and trying to implement a tactile appearance. Unfortunately the sign makers used one wrong colour in the lettering, making a mistake with the pink I specified, but the client was overjoyed with the end product and therefore it remained.
