The Gate complex is situated at London Gateway at the edge of Essex and the Thames Estuary. It welcomes hundreds of hauliers a week, delivering goods into and out of the UK.
Yoke were asked to design an environment that would communicate to hauliers, who come from all over Europe. LG needed to communicate health and safety messaging and to instill in the hauliers a sense of urgency, professionalism and efficiency.
Yoke produced a set of highly detailed visuals showing the proposed transformation of the portakabin. We designed a new reception desk, coordinating with a new highly durable flooring. We combined these elements with messaging to go behind the desk communicating through symbols and key words the messaging necessary. The red key line that goes around the room animates the space and encourages a swift visit.
The Gate complex was completed over one month. Working through the night very weekend of December, the only time the Gate is closed.
