Over the years many of Wellington’s (and New Zealand’s) most successful businesses and organisations have chosen Concept as their sign and display provider.
“Wellington Airport has now had a long association with Concept Sign and Display.
This association has included some large-scale signage projects in the form of the multi-level car park, Rydges Hotel and more recently, the new rental car parking and app-based pick up areas at the airport. This has also included some demanding signage design and fabrication in challenging environments.
We have always found Concept to be professional, reliable and easy to deal with. They consistently deliver a quality product in a timely manner, especially when at times this has been at short notice.
We would not hesitate in recommending Concept as a signage provider. In addition to Transport projects, they also have a strong affiliation with other teams at the airport which look after Terminal signage projects.
We look forward to a continued relationship with Concept.”
Pippi Kettle – Wellington Airport
“I wanted to take time after such an emotional day with the opening of Waitohi to thank your team.
Katie did such amazing designs, then fine tuning to collaborate with the Athfields, who are now using the Waitohi project as an example of how wayfinding and branding can lift a project to new levels.
BUT, then your team turned her vision into a reality. Not only within the building, around the building and on the building! Everything we imagined and more with your teams fantastic workmanship, pride in their trade, and dedication ( I am sure Wayne thinks he lives at Waitohi)
I know we pushed your team, adding bits and pieces…sorry… but man did they take it in their stride and make us proud. Everyone has been commenting on the wayfinding and branding. So thank you both.
People have been blown away with Waitohi, the look and feel. I personally think you can feel in the building that everything put into it was done by people with heart and pride in what they did.
So please, it was a pleasure working with you and your team and I look forward to working with you again soon.
Many, many thanks“
Andrea Thomas – Wellington City Council
The rebranding project for Sky Stadium was extensive both in terms of the quantity and diversity of signage required in a very short timeframe.
However, the project was made much more manageable thanks to Fran, Carlos and the wider Concept team. We greatly appreciated their support which included graphic design services, production advice, project management and quality installation required for such a large and active worksite.
Thank you so much for all the hard work that I know you have put into this job. It’s been a huge project and I’ve been so impressed by the way you have managed all the details.
Clare Elcome – Wellington Regional Stadium
“Hutt City Council and one of its Council Controlled Organisations – The Community Facilities Trust – have worked alongside Concept Sign and Display for a number of years on projects such as Huia Pool, Walter Nash Centre, Koranui – Stokes Valley Community Hub and the Ricoh Sports Centre.
Signage requirements across these high profile community facilities has varied from large-scale external light signage to smaller directional and wayfinding requirements. Their expertise in signage placement, fabrication and installation, ability to seamlessly integrate with other design/construction teams and focus on end user requirements have made them invaluable.
Working alongside the Concept team has been a pleasure and we would not hesitate to recommend them as a provider.
We continue to have an exceptional relationship with the Concept team and look forward to future opportunities for working together.“
Mike Mercer – Hutt City Council
“Concept Sign and Display are our go-to Signage Company. We rely heavily on them for advice in the planning stages and quality workmanship in the production and installation phases. Once the job is in Concept’s hands we can relax as we have faith in the team for doing the very best by us time and time again.
Their work for the Waitohi building was no exception. It’s a beautiful building that has been nominated for an Architecture Award and I have no doubt that the crisp clear signage and wayfinding has a part to play in the overall building aesthetic. Everything was produced and applied with great pride, skill and care.
Nothing is ever too much trouble for this professional team – even during the last rush of this project when we realised we’ve left some crucial pieces off the list, Concept put all hands on deck to rush some pieces through so everything was installed before the opening day. We couldn’t talk higher of them as a company, and happily recommend them.”
Amy Stewart – Wellington City Council

Vern Whiteman – Colorex
It was a pleasure to work with Fran and the team at Concept on the signage for our new, architecturally designed, purpose-built Hospice facility. The project included room names, acknowledgement plaques, a recognition wall, significant amounts of window frosting and dimensional text on all internal glazing, multiple murals as well as exterior way-finding signage. Fran understood our need for a simple and professional approach to our signage fitting with our holistic approach to care.
Fran and the team at Concept helped us to make the right decisions that would enhance our facility while remaining within our budget.
I have no hesitation in recommending Concept and look forward to working with them in the future.“

“We have consistently found that Concept Signs deliver a high end service in a timely and effective manner. We have used Concept sign many times over many new installations and sign removal at various locations through Wellington city. I would without reservation recommend the services of Concept Sign and we will continue to use them in all future sign projects. We enjoy working with a company who strive to provide the best possible solutions for our wayfinding and experience design problems and no job is ever too big or small for the Concept team.“

“Before I went on leave for a couple of days (well, to move house!) I just wanted to touch base and say thank you!
Thank you for all your support and flexibility around everything design and print over the past couple of months. I know there has been lots of changes and lack of decisions made so thanks for your patience around all of that.
Carlos, you’ve been awesome to work with and I appreciate your professionalism and assistance with everything – it all worked out in the end huh?
I think I can speak on behalf of all of us too that we were really happy with the quality and how everything looked.
Please also thank your install team – it was great working with them too.
KJ Smith – World of Wearable Art
“I have worked with Concept Signs on two major projects now. One was the supply and installation of the wayfinding, graphic frosting and general signage for the Hutt City Council Administration Building after it had a $22 Million earthquake strengthening and refurbishment. The second was the part design, supply and installation for the extended Huia Pool & Fitness project. Where the new branding and Wayfinding signage was installed on a variety of different surfaces. It also included replacing all the current signage and wayfinding in the original part of the building.
In both projects I found the Concept team professional, easy to work with, willing to give good ideas that weren’t going to cost the earth for the result we wanted, especially if a problem developed. They gave quick and efficient responses, worked under tight timeframes and the result have been fantastic. We have received positive feedback from our staff and customers.
I would recommend Concept.”
Stephen Keatley – Hutt City Council

Jason and the Concept team were an absolute pleasure to work with on the recent Westpac Stadium external signage project. The design ideas that Jason provided fitted our brief perfectly and we always received the concepts and edits ahead of schedule. The installation team were easy to work with and engaged with us regularly to ensure that we were 100% happy with the work being carried out. The team at Concept had a good understanding of our business and what we were wanting to achieve with this project. This made the entire project a smooth and problematic free experience.
We are very happy with how the final product looks and would like to thank the team at Concept for the effort, ideas and hard work that they contributed to the project.“
Hamish Allen – Wellington Regional Stadium
“The Concept Sign & Display Ltd team went the extra mile on this project for us as they interpreted conceptual designs into fabricated reality. The signage in the Discovery Garden Te Kaapuia O Waoku complements it’s structure and the plants and helps bring the garden to life. We look forward to continuing to work with the Concept team as the garden further evolves and develops.

“With our fleet up for replacement and being effectively mobile billboards we met with Fran and Nick to help us come up with a highly visual bodywrap to ensure we gained as much positive exposure as possible. Fran, Nick and the team produced 2-3 concepts for our consideration and after a couple of tweaks we locked it in. In these busy times it was refreshing to work with a company who clearly listened and wanted to understand our business. ”
