Does the front door need repainting as the first point of contact visitors have with the new space?

Should we stencil the DoES logo in white on a black door?

I doubt it needs painting. Could do with a good clean though, once all the messy painting/sanding/moving has been completed.

Should we stencil the DoES logo in white on a black door?

Could we cut the logo out of white vinyl, instead, using the DoES vinyl cutter?

(Vinyl will be easier to peel off, if we ever change the logo 😉 )

And if so, could we also do the same with signs for the toilets? Something gender-neutral on the standard loo, and a wheelchair icon for the accessible loo.

We could etch the DoES logo onto the internal kitchen window with the Laser cutter when we replace the grout/ broken panes see #714
or even the directors portraits?

@jackie1050 was suggesting very much the same thing I believe? Sounds an awesome idea. Could we do that as a stretch goal ?

@zarino lots of vinyl-cut signage for all round the space sounds good. I have been hoping to get you (with some vinyl-cutter driving/applying assistants) to churn through a load of signage (see #20 for a bigger starting point on what we'd need)

Toilet vinyl got done, does anyone know when they'll be able to sort the door vinyl? It would look good, particularly as we just have a paper sign up there which seems to be doing a good job.

We've now got a 610mm wide roll of matt white vinyl (thanks @DoESsean!).

I'm thinking we should cut this for the main door. I think 50cm wide and 107cm high, so it takes up most of the door - going to mark up the door with some masking tape to see roughly how big that would make it...

Door now marked up, does that seem the right size? Should it be a bit bigger?

How about reversing the logo rather than putting it in a white rectangle? So, when it’s cut out of white vinyl, the logo would be a big white square, with the letters "DoES" cut out of it, and then the letters "Liverpool" below in white just like all the rest of the text.

Obviously, then, you’ll want to increase the overall size of the logo, so it still lines up with edges of the text above and below it.

You might also need to increase the vertical space between the logo and the top of the "Co-working…" section below it, just so it’s clear where the logo ends and the text starts.

I also wonder about putting "Welcome to" on a single line? The "to" looks awkward on a line of its own.

What about this for the "extra" door on the events room?

@johnmckerrell The picture isn't "supposed to" be the actual proportions, it is the actual proportions :-p (modulo minor variations in me measuring out masking tape).

I'd initially thought having the "Welcome to" all on one line would make it too wide, but it does look better. Also pondered the logo colour inversal, @zarino, but I prefer the current option myself.

How's this?

The background of the picture isn't the size of the door (IIRC it's width is the size of the roll of vinyl and its height is arbitrary)

Okay, how about that? (text, etc. also resized to be bigger - I'm assuming you mostly meant leave the right edge where it is and make it bigger into the left-hand space @johnmckerrell?)

@amcewen Still think the logo inside the box thing looks wrong, but happy to be out-voted on that. Otherwise, this looks good to me 👍 Make it so!

Dunno but the Co-working line seems to start too low to me?

Think I'm happy with the latest mock up. 👍 Also the events room looks good.

These have been cut, but it seems that whoever used the last of the clear transfer tape didn't inform anyone or replace it, so this is blocked until #1195 is resolved :-(

@amcewen @Helen-8 @zarino : Both of these doors look great, and collectively create a fantastic impression on arrival.
