Scoring a Graphics Hat Trick

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Citizen’s Business Bank Arena, needed a logo and graphics for a new in-arena bar they were creating for fans in attendance.  The new area would be called “CrossBar”, a reference to the piping that holds up a hockey net.

Brian Mundy, VP of Digital Imaging and Graphic Services at Photomation, is an avid hockey fan, and season ticket holder, who welcomed the opportunity to help create a new logo for the arena.  Brian developed several options for the client to review and they chose the one you see above.

Next, the arena wanted to use the logo to create signage to brand the area and to attract guests.  Using banner material we created signs measuring 3′x15′ and 3′x30′.  We also created 22″x28″ signs that were placed around arena entrances to promote awareness of the new bar.

Lastly, using B/W images of hockey actions, Brian incorporated the new logo into graphics that were installed within the CrossBar itself using existing plexiglass stand-off displays. The images were used as décor and to help brand the new bar area.

Our client was very pleased with the logo, the signage and the B/W images using the new logo.  We scored a graphics hat trick!

Slick Installation

Our client, PDL Packaging, needed us to create several design concepts to wrap a 33' foot cargo truck for Golden West Lubricants, manufacturers of Prolong Super Lubricants. After reviewing several design options the client decided to go with a subtle blue and white gradient. In addition to the design work, we photographed several of their products so they could be incorporated into the final design.

To help the client visualize what the final truck design would look like, we dropped our various options on to the actual photographs of the vehicle. In addition, we made 48" approvals printed on the actual material that we would use for the wrap. This served as a proof for final color and image placement.

The graphics were produced using 3M 180C adhesive vinyl with an 8519 laminate. Installation of the vehicle graphics took place outside our building and was completed in two days.

Reigning Cats and Dogs

Our client, Geographics, needed large wall graphics for the new, state of the art Animals Services Center in the Inland Empire city of Upland. The graphics for the new facilities, made on self-adhesive vinyl wall covering material, playfully use images of cats and dogs scampering across pastoral views of Southern California farmland. The large wall covering adds warmth and friendliness to help to make the Upland Animal Services Center accessible to the residents of western San Bernardino county.

All Wall Graphics helped in the final design, printing and installation of the panoramic wall covering that lines the foyer, long hallways and intimate “get-to-know” pet areas though out the kennels. Would be pet-adopters have a chance to touch, hold and play with their adopted pets in these newly decorated areas.

Opening in early 2010, The Upland Animal Services Center will be helping the pets and animals of the greater Upland area with state of the art care in a pet-people’s environment. Geographics, with the help of All Wall Graphics, has given that environment a softer friendlier touch. A place where the animals are king.
