White Boards with Surgical Precision

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, needed a specially designed white board for the Surgery Center in their new Patient Care Center. Working with input from the surgical teams, we created a magnetic white board they could use to keep track of patients and other surgery related materials.

After using the first version, the surgical staff made changes to the board using red and blue tape that made it more useful to their team. We took those changes and made the improvements to the white board as part of the design that made cleaning the board easier.

The surgical staff was very pleased with the final board. Installation required us to suit up as if we were preparing for surgery. We removed the first board and installed the new one within 30 minutes. You could say that the magnetic white boards were installed with surgical precision.

Suspended Eco-Resin by Design

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Golden State Construction, asked us to help with a project in a local dental office. The goal was to create a decorative partition between the main entrance and the children’s play area.

Utilizing Lumicor Toffee Leaf eco-resin panels, both frosted and clear versions, we suspended the decorative pieces. Each panel is held in place by aluminum fasteners and grippers attached to stainless steel cables. The bottoms of the panels are inserted into a groove cut in the base of the curved wood partition. Suspension hardware was selected because the thin panels would pop out of the groove without proper support.

Eco-resin comes in a variety of types and styles. It is made of actual material, such as natural plant, industrial metal or textile patterns, embedded in acrylic. It can be used to transform mundane spaces into extraordinary walls and designs.

If you need options on how to improve your office environment, give us a call. We’ll be happy to show you how eco-resin can make a difference in your design.

It’s Miller Time…

Our client, Miller Brewing Company, wanted to install graphics at Dodgers Stadium in support of their new sponsorship agreement. Working with their agency in Chicago, Photomation brought their vision to reality.

Using adhesive blue vinyl we covered concrete pillars and beams. Next we added text on the beams and graphics on the pillars. Using large cut-out graphics and lettering, we installed floor graphics to enhance Miller’s marketing message. We also installed larger-than-life wall graphics to round out the space.

The project took less than a week to produce and install. The Miller Decks, located on the first and third base sides of the loge level, were ready for opening day for all fans to enjoy. So, the next time someone takes you out to the ballgame, stop by and take a look around as you enjoy a nice, cold and refreshing Miller Lite.

Our client, Yamaha Corporation of America, has come to us for over two decades to get trade show graphics for their most important event of the year, NAMM, National Association of Music Merchants. The winter trade show is held annually in Anaheim, CA and is one of the largest trade shows held in the Anaheim Convention Center.

With one of the largest booths at the show, Yamaha has a need for a lot of graphics to display their wide range of musical products. For 2009, Photomation provided over 100 large graphics, dimensional lettering, large graphic walls and a variety of informational signs for the event.

“Photomation has been a very reliable supplier. They’re quick, they deliver on time, and their final product looks great.”, says John Nelsen, General Manager, Advertising & Creative Services Division. Now that is music to our ears!
