Adding Dimension To Your Custom Business Signs

With winter just around the corner, now is a good time to look at your interior signs.  They are one of the first things that your clients see upon entering your establishment, so be sure to leave them with a memorable image of what your company represents.  The best way to stand out is to have a 3 dimensional sign custom crafted for your office interior.

Making A Branding Move

One of the best times to work on your business branding is when your company is moving locations.  This was the case for Smashing Pixels.  Smashing Pixels, a digital marketing and website design agency located in Brantford Ontario, was in the midst of moving their office when we first heard from Kevin Magee. Kevin was looking for custom dimensional sign with the Smashing Pixels logo that fit with the brand both he and Trevor Cherewka created in the Brantford business community.  Trevor is no stranger to The Sign Depot either, take a look below when he first visited our workshop for our inaugural designers’ demo day (you can see Trevor’s comments at the 40 second mark in the video below)

With both Kevin and Trevor looking to give their office a professional look, the Smashing Pixels 3 dimensional office sign took shape.

Below are a few images of Smashing Pixels sign being crafted here in our Sign Depot workshop.

The Smashing Pixels sign was a mix of sign substrates.  It began with a sandblasted cedar backer

Followed by custom cut acrylic letters mounted to the cedar backer.  The combination of wood and acrylic adds dimension and interest to the sign.

The sign was then installed at their new location at Dunsdon St. in Brantford.

    Nice work. Sandblasted wood has a texture all of it’s own, doesn’t it? We recently made a blasted wood sign for a Scotch distillery & I’ll be posting a step-by-step photo sequence on our blog in the next few weeks.
