The following workwear design case studies set out what we have achieved to date.
From Corporate Uniform Design to examples of our ongoing expert support, you’ll find it all in these case studies.
Sugdens were thrilled to supply paramedic students at De Montfort University with uniforms late last year following the launch of two new paramedic courses. We worked closely with the university to ensure designs met requirements and were proud to provide the very first cohort of students with uniforms in late 2019.
Having become the exclusive supplier of shirts and blouses to The Salvation Army some years earlier, Sugdens were asked to produce samples of garments featuring the Red Shield, with various sizes of shield and shades of red offered. This was no mean task – the detail of the wording ‘The Salvation Army’ in such a small shield requires very precise embroidery, but without ‘gathering’ the fabric of the garment around the shield.
We were delighted to be asked to design and produce T-Shirts that could be worn by all volunteers during the Yorkshire Sculpture International festival, which see’s sculptures on display across four major Yorkshire venues throughout the summer.
We were approached quite recently by Wesser, who work in partnership with St John Ambulance, aiding their fundraising activities.
We were asked to come up with a simple uniform that their fundraising team could wear, that would showcase the St John Ambulance branding and make the team feel a part of the organisation they represent.
We were recently tasked with providing more functional garments to suit the highly demanding roles of modern day Prison Officers.
From identifying a suitable solution, to managing a large service contract we were only too happy to meet the needs of Her Majesty’s Prison Service.
St John Ambulance (Supplies) is a company, based in London established to control all ‘supplies’ to St John Ambulance. Our objective was to create a more modern look, which would reinvigorate the St John Ambulance brand and enhance the perception of the organisation and ultimately provide a high profile branded uniform, fit for the nation’s leading first aid charity.
We were approached by a leading UK independent airline, to design a full range of corporate uniform. From Pilot and Cabin Crew right down to those working on the ground, no crew member was left unaccounted for in this full scale bespoke corporate uniform design.
Planned to coincide with the airline’s 50th anniversary, the new uniform was commissioned to celebrate the brand’s heritage whilst looking forward to the future with a dynamic, fashionable look the whole airline crew could be proud of.
Metrobus are a London based bus company who operate local bus services in Greater London, Surrey, Kent and West Sussex. Forming part of the Go Ahead Group they comprise of approximately 1000 employees.
The design brief was quite structured in terms of colour and garment type. However our Key Account manager and Product Development Manager undertook a research programme to ensure we understood the wearer’s roles and what each role entailed in terms of garment practicality and fit for purpose.
After the success of the Metrobus roll-out, we were asked to implement a generic workwear design throughout various Bus Companies that make up the Go Ahead Group.
We have since successfully implemented a uniform and service programme for Wilts & Dorset Bus Company, Go South Coast with 11 bus/ coach companies, Brighton & Hove Bus Company, Go North East, Oxford Bus Company, Plymouth City Bus, Go – Ahead London Supervisors and KonectBus.
