Take off at Carlisle Airport…


It’s wonderful to see passenger flights now arriving and departing at Carlisle Airport – years of hard work have finally come to fruition!


We were incredibly proud to be involved in the completion of the airport.  We have worked with Stobart Group since 2009, building a long-standing, trusted relationship with the team there which has resulted in us maintaining and developing their branding on a range of their projects throughout the UK and Ireland.


They approached us in 2018 to design and install their external welcome and directional signage, building graphics and internal wall coverings for the new Carlisle Lake District Airport - one of Cumbria’s most prestigious developments to date and we were excited to be involved. 


We worked to create a brand identity that reflected both the modernity and integrity of the Stobart Group company in this milestone project.  Our key account managers worked closely between the Stobart team and the in-house Ast team. Our graphic designers worked to create all the brand design concepts, which were specially manufactured in-house to fit each individual space. These were then installed by our expert fitters – from initial design to finished product, we looked after all elements of the branding process.


Throughout the project we worked closely with many different onsite contractors. Our team did this efficiently, overseeing both internal and external parties, ensuring communication between contractors was clear and timely, which was vital to maintain the quality and precision of each element of the project. The timescales were extremely tight but due to key organisational measures taken, the installation process – over just a single weekend - was a success and the project finished on time.

John Fausset at Stobart Group said:

“The team at AST Signs was very pro-active, providing several concept designs for approval before production commenced.  They interpreted our requirements exactly, providing a tremendous design which flows throughout the building. We are delighted with the end result.”

We can provide both signage and internal graphics for businesses and projects of all sizes – to find out more, please just get in touch.
