isGroup was approached by Urban Designers Planit IE to upgrade the Chorley PALS Memorial Commemorative Information Stands in time for this year’s November Memorial Service. The commemoratives were to be unveiled at the 100 years’ anniversary of the end of World War 1 remembrance service. They were to replace the existing stands and were to be located by the town’s market where local “Pals” Company paraded in 1914 and 1915 before setting off to war.
The design team at isGroup offered up several proposals in response to the brief but ultimately the preferred choice was minimalistic free standing lecterns. Produced using single pieces of 10mm thick aluminium, the signs were formed on a brake press to create freestanding structures. The graphics were produced from highly durable anti-graffiti and vandal resistant print which was bonded to the angled sections. The lower section featured matt laminated printed vinyls featuring the emblems of the Chorley Pals, the East Lancashire Regiment and of course, the symbol of those lost, the Poppy.
isGroup was delighted to participate in a project that reflects the importance of remembering all those who were lost in World War 1.
