Tell the story of Umbro’s enduring relationship with England within the new state-of-the-art purpose built England training academy in Burton.
We had four main areas to create visual impact for Umbro along with a functional signage system that was to be installed through-out the facility. We went for drama, fun and rich brand storytelling.
The centrepiece was the main atrium entranceway where we chose to install 150 tailor’s mannequins - a direct nod to Umbro’s tailoring heritage.
Every mannequin showcased different brand heritage stories, football culture insights and authentic connections to England’s footballing history.
Linesman’s flags and corner flags were a fun way to bring something interesting to the site's way finding system.
Taking advantage of the main ‘wet entrance’ from the practice pitches, we created an updatable double diamond inspired wall installation to showcase the latest Umbro boots to a highly influential audience, the England football team.
An entire corridor that stretched the length of the facility, housed a series of cabinets showcasing an Umbro England shirt for each of the fifty years that Umbro had supplied the England team.
