Building Sign – The Athlete Recovery Center – Part 3: Painting

Well my job is done for awhile. I’ve designed and cut the sign. Now it’s Brians turn to work some magic in the paint shop. He’ll prep, prime and paint then assemble.

Building Sign – The Athlete Recovery Center – Part 2: Cutting The Sign

So we did some more tweaking of the fonts to get it just right and tested the final design by placing a print on the front of the building. Dan, the client, was happy so it’s on to the 3D portion of the project.

Here we’ve added depth and texture to the design to give it a natural wood feel.

Now we are ready to cut. I’m cutting these out of 15lb Precision Board HDU on our MultiCam 3000. We’ll then mount the signs to 3mm Dibond for extra rigidity.

Building Sign – The Athlete Recovery Center – Part 1: The Design

Conceptualizing and sketching is a challenging but fun part of the sign process.  It certainly helps when the client knows what they want!  Here we are getting started with a sign in the town of Piermont, NY for our friends at The Athlete Recovery Center.

We start with an on-site evaluation and measurements.

After our consultation with the client we create the sketch. (Nailed it on the first one!)

Now its on to the technical drawings. Once approved and signed off we’ll start the 3D Design.
