Dare to Care

How one health care provider made a big impression on the community

High Visibility

Hunter Care Group provides mental health supports to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). In order to expand the scope and visibility of its specialised care services, a relocation to larger premises was required. They turned to trusted signage partner, SIGNWAVE Newcastle to complement the new fit out with efficient use of signage that maintained the brand’s identity and increased visibility to new eyes in a high traffic area.

Keep Calm and Feel Welcome

The SIGNWAVE team made a plan and met the brief with multiple solutions using an array of materials.

Using a large window area as a blank canvas, they created light-filled privacy for those inside and an even larger street presence for passers-by by applying a one-way vision vinyl displaying beautiful images and motivational messages. The front awning features a prominent logo router cut to shape and some simple router cut information on either side. To create an inviting entrance, elements of the logo were used on the front doors with a combination of frosting and vinyl cut lettering company.

Inside, a calming reception area – vital for clients with special needs – was created with simple door frosting and a striking full colour digital print that also provided privacy between offices. Down lights on the reception desk perfectly complemented the router cut logo – and a similar small wall logo was added to the conference room.


As a consequence of the expansion and a greater presence in the community over the months following the install, a new fleet of vehicles and parking signs were required - and produced by SIGNWAVE Newcastle.

Win win

Meeting a very tight deadline ending three days just before Christmas, SIGNWAVE finished the install on a beautiful office that Jarrod and the team at Hunter Care Group have received constant compliments on from visitors. The growth of the Hunter Care Growth has resulted in a larger community presence and a number of local business awards.
