AFCO – Armed Forces Career Office

Via their project management company Capita, Sign Specialists have been supplying external signage to their recruitment locations since 2011. The original brand was a purple curved fascia with pushed through letters and internal and external illumination. The specification was subsequently changed to black flex frame boxes with a PVC skin, internally illuminated via LED or externally via a light trough and with sites located throughout the UK primarily on High Streets. We have also supplied internal signage as well as glazing graphics on a bespoke basis as required. Our service to AFCO includes site surveys, scheme drawings for client approval and sign off and installation. We are now in the midst of changing the colour scheme from black to grey with a new logo highlighting the fact that the recruitment centres are for all the armed forces and not particular to one, with the priority being replacing the outstanding purple specification. Sites completed in 2017 have included Glasgow, Edinburgh, Middlesbrough, Carlisle, Shrewsbury, Swansea and Exeter with more to come in 2018.
