In the world of sports, attention to detail is key to success. From the moment players step into the locker room to the final buzzer on the court, creating an environment that fosters unity, motivation, and team spirit is paramount. One often-overlooked aspect of this environment is the sign package within the locker room.

Let’s take a look at the features and benefits of implementing a cohesive sign package in a university locker room. This sign package was tailored specifically for St. Mary’s Men’s Basketball team in Moraga, CA.

Features of a Cohesive Sign Package

1. Branding Consistency

A cohesive sign package ensures that every visual element aligns with the team’s brand identity. This includes the consistent use of team colors, logos, and typography across all signage.

2. Variety of Signage Types and Locations

A well-rounded sign package incorporates various types of signage throughout the space. Each type serves a different purpose, contributing to the overall atmosphere of the locker room.

3. Durability

High-quality materials and craftsmanship ensure that the signage remains intact and visually appealing for years to come. Durable materials convey a sense of professionalism as well as withstand the wear-and-tear of a locker room environment.

Benefits of a Cohesive Sign Package for a University Athletic Program

1. Fosters Team Identity

A cohesive sign package reinforces a sense of identity among team members. A well-crafted sign package should foster a sense of belonging and pride, strengthening team cohesion and commitment.

2. Inspires Motivation

Team colors, imagery of past successes, and reminders of the team’s goals serve as constant sources of motivation for players. When faced with challenges or setbacks, these visual cues can help players strive for excellence both individually and collectively. For the St. Mary’s Men’s Basketball team, we worked with the coach to incorporate an older version of the Gael mascot  as a nod to their rich history of success. These were added in small acrylic emblems across the bottom of each locker to not take away from the new, updated mascot visuals. 

3. Enhances Communication

Clear and informative signage facilitates communication within the team and entire athletic department. Whether it’s the entrance to the locker room or directions to specific areas within the locker room, well-designed signage ensures that information is easily accessible to players and staff. The addition of the etched glass on the shower stalls adds consistency and branding in unexpected places.

4. Boosts Morale

A visually appealing and thoughtfully curated locker room environment has a positive impact on team morale. When players feel proud of their surroundings, they are more likely to approach practices and games with a positive attitude and heightened confidence. The vertical purple GAELS letters situated between the lockers is a bold callout to the team spirit innate throughout the program.

5. Creates a Professional Image

A cohesive sign package reflects the professionalism and dedication of the St. Mary’s Men’s Basketball program. When players, recruits, press or officials step into the locker room, they are met with a visually striking and organized space that conveys a commitment to excellence.
