Aurora School Blackburn branding signage

Educating deaf and deafblind children from across Victoria, Aurora School provides an invaluable service to many families in the state. Students travel here to receive the very best that the highly dedicated staff have to offer in helping them reach their potential. The school also runs a home-based early intervention programme.

In addition to the main school, Aurora’s Blackburn campus is home to a Community Kindergarten and Community Learning Centre for training and professional development. With numerous entries, and the increased complexity of being next to a government Primary School, the staff identified the need for clear signage at each entrance to guide visitors and identify the site.

Aurora School has a striking logo, with a fiery orange-to-yellow gradient offset by accents of navy and rust. When the school approached Danthonia to design their new signage, the concept grew through feedback and collaboration with school leadership, and took inspiration from the forms and hues of the vibrant Aurora School branding.
