TransPennine Express

Client First Group

In 2015 DGDESIGN supported First Group with its successful TransPennine franchise bid and was subsequently brought in to support during mobilisation and development with detailing and implementation of the exterior and interior design.  The work encompasses the design of all passenger facing aspects of the fleet refurbishments and new rolling stock programmes and also expands into station related customer service points such as lounges, ticket offices and waiting rooms. Our Team has designed and authored the production surfaces used to manufacture the new exteriors for Nova 2 and 3 and the refinement of all aspects of the interiors – working in conjunction with TransPennine Express and CAF’s engineering teams. Working closely with First TransPennine’s Customer Experience Team, DGDESIGN has overseen the development and introduction of a new exterior and interior colour palette across the TPE rolling stock fleet, assisted in station environment upgrades and customer interface points.
