    Help with designing a new room sign!

    Ok, so we spent all of half term (last week for us in cumbria) clearing out 30 years worth of junk from our workshop. Wow, the space is incredible - I can see the floor!

    I also ripped down the old sign off the door which read "Audio-Visual Technician." Long gone are the days where the IT technician would sit around recording educational TV programs all day then copying them onto several other tapes just for them to end up lying around. (During the tidy-up, I eventually got rid of a 'portable' betamax player and 50-odd tapes.)

    So to get to the point, I need a new sign!!! The Tech dept have all these fancy cutting machines so I can have virtually any design I want. I fancy something with a technical/IT theme, but it has to stand out and not be too complicated. Any ideas on font and maybe a bit of a computer related design would be greatful!!!

    You get a door sign?
    I wish we could afford such extravagance. I'm lucky to get a door.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Haven't got round to photographing the old stuff yet. I have a vintage SONY tuner for hifi seperate system. Also an Acer anywhere 386 laptop with MS-Dos and Windows 3.1 on it (had great fun booting this up).

    I also have 20 or so thin-clients which are acorn but will run windows off a citrix server if anyone is interested for a nominal donation. Will maybe post about this in the thin-client section.

    Will port a photo of the door in a bit

    "Miracle Workers"

    Or, go with something like Head Teacher or Bursar - nobody will find IT Support then :twisted:

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Sorry, I should have said that I want the sign to say "ICT Support Team"

    Here is a piccy of our door. You can see the red patch where the old sign resided.

    I am really just looking for something different - maybe a geeky font or something ICT related.

    Please tell me if I am just being stupid and should go for a plain lettering style!!!!

    Got to love contract decorators haven't you! They'd paint around dirt rather than take an extra 15 mins cleaning a wall.

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Our office doesn't say anything. I was very tempted to put something like:

    "before knocking, please try the following steps - 1. Make sure it is plugged in. 2. Turn it off and on again"

    I didn't think it would go down too well though

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Personally I'd opt for no sign, then when a teacher sends a student to find you, they won't know where you are! ha ha! genius!

    Saying that, out of the 4 doors leading to our office (it's lots of small rooms and old cleaners cupboards knocked into 1) only one door has a sign on it that says 'ICT technicians' and guess what, the kids always knock on the wrong bloody door everytime! All the others are plain doors, nothing on them. Scares the life out my systems manager thou, as he sits right next to one of the doors that not used!

    Re: Help with designing a new room sign!

    Do any of us have anything unusual or interesting on our office doors? Mine is just plain green and boring... no sign saying techies office or the like, nothing. It has a lock though, which is the best feature about it. It's not uncommon for me to be out of the office, so if the teachers knock and don't get an answer, thats generally considered normal. I could take advantage of that...
