The size of the school premises
The size of the school is based on a few components, such as the number of students, the number of buildings, the size of the site and the number of gates. These components are generally an indication of the number and type of signs that will be required.
The complexity of the campus layout
In terms of campus layout complexity — the types of buildings, whether the buildings are single or multi-story, and whether the school has multiple campuses — these are the main considerations when calculating the signage audit cost.
On average, a school Visual Strategy Workshop in Australia costs around $5,000 to $6,500.
What’s Included in the Visual Strategy Workshop Fee?
Visual Strategy Workshop fee should include:
- consultation with the leadership team to gain an understanding of the School’s vision, challenges and requirements.
- Documentation of suggested solutions.
- Signage family concept designs
- A detailed report with every sign placement clearly marked on the map, as well as corresponding pricing information.
How long does a visual strategy workshop take?
This will depend on the size of the campus and the complexity of its layout. On average, it can take our team around 3 – 6 hours to complete the on-site aspect of the visual strategy workshop. Although the client is only required to be present 30-45 minutes at the beginning. This process involves exploring the campus grounds, taking photos, making notes, and discussing ideas for the initial design draft.
Putting together the report and preparing the concept designs and mapped layouts can take around 10 – 15 business days. Depending on the volume of the client’s requested changes, the revision can take around 1-3 weeks to complete.
A visual strategy workshop is the first real step towards optimizing your school’s wayfinding and branding identity. Without it, you wouldn’t know what type of signage goes where, or even what message to display on the sign. Can you see how your school can benefit from a visual strategy workshop?
