Tropical Delight

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, St Joseph Hospital, asked us to turn the blank walls and ceilings in their new radiology room into a soothing tropical environment. We accomplished this by creating a relaxing tropical beach scene rendered out on our digital wall covering material. In addition to this, we created a tropical coral reef by replacing existing ceiling window panels with our customizable backlit transparencies.

Our Day/Night backlit material can be viewed with the lights on or off. This material turns a ceiling light fixture into an instant light box at the flick of a switch.

We were pleased to hear that these graphics were a big hit with the staff and patients.

Star Treatment

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Boeing, needed a display to hold their 2009 Energy Star award for energy conservation. Working with their account manager, Francisco Flores, a display was designed that showcases the award located in their Long Beach facility.

Energy Star awards are given by the federal Environmental Protection Agency and are designed to recognize significant contributions in the area of energy conservation and environmental stewardship.

The Boeing display needed to show off the Energy Star award while not restricting the view for security. Also, the display could not be attached with screws to the building structure. Using acrylic sheets and high strength adhesive tape, we assembled the display you see above.

No matter the challenge, we are here to help you look good. Call us and we’ll give you the star treatment, too.

Comfortable, Inviting Environments

Our client, DGWB Advertising, called upon their All Wall Graphics Solutions-Specialist, Mike Mertz, to help produce a wall-covering project for Children Hospital of Orange County (CHOC).

After a walk-through with the clients to discuss details of the lobby area project, measurements were taken to create a layout. Brian Mundy, VP of Digital Imaging, drew schematics and sent them off to DGWB for the creative. Brian then enhanced the children’s life-style images and we dropped them into the approval file. After a round of proofs, we printed and laminated the wall covering. Our expert installers hung the wall covering art in one afternoon.

The lobby at CHOC now has a more friendly, comfortable and inviting environment. Let us help you transform the walls of your facility into the type of environment that works for you.

Fifty-Five Years Young

KnowledgeByte Main Image

This week we wanted to pause and celebrate two birthdays. The first one is Photomation’s 55th birthday. Founded in 1955 by Dean Hesketh, our company first started out as a commercial photography company. Opening the same year Walt Disney started his Magic Kingdom in Anaheim, Dean took borrowed money and set up his studio in Anaheim. A graduate of the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles, Dean quickly became one of Southern California’s most sought after commercial photographers.

The lab portion of the business started when he began to process his own film and make his own prints. In the late 1960’s, Photomation was born and has been a force within the graphics community ever since. Our company is committed to continuous innovation and providing the best quality and service available. Your continued support has allowed us to celebrate “Double Nickels” or 55 years of service.

The other birthday I wanted to mention is John Hesketh’s 55th birthday. Yes, he is the same age as the company. The family lore is that Dean brought in the paperwork for the first lease to be signed in the hospital room, right after John was born! So congratulations to John and to Photomation. Both are 55 years young!!

Mosaic Banner Promotes Industry

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our industry’s main trade show is PMA, Photo Marketing Association. This year, this event was held in our backyard at the Anaheim Convention Center. Attended by members worldwide, the annual show brought 15,000 attendees to Southern California.

All Wall Graphics provided an 8’x16’ mosaic banner made up of thousands of individual pictures of submitted by local residents. The photo mosaic is a nighttime shot of the Anaheim Garden Walk. People were encouraged to upload their digital images of Orange County to a website set up for this purpose. The image assembly was coordinated though the association’s Jackson, Michigan office and the file was then sent to us to be printed. Pole pockets were added to facilitate installation on-site.

The enormous banner was a huge success and you would find attendees looking for the picture they submitted within the mosaic banner.
