Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum, opened their doors on Friday, October 15th, 2010. They asked us to participate with printing donor signage and oversized wall maps. These maps detail the many Pacific Islands and their ethnic backgrounds where visitors can look where any particular piece of art originated. The museum helps showcase the diverse cultures of the Pacific Islands that are a big part of the Southern California melting pot.

The maps were printed on 180C with and 8520 laminate. Our installers applied the graphic directly to the wall in the museum. The donor signs were DigitalMaster™ prints mounted to 3/16″ Gator board.

The building’s exterior is hand painted to represent the meeting place. Upon entry you will find an inviting variety of art and cultural pieces representing many, many island cultures. The addition of their peaceful sculpture garden is especially beautiful.

The museum is located adjacent to MOLA Museum, just north of downtown Long Beach, CA. Address: PIEAM - 695 Alamitos Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802 - t) 562-216-4170 Open Wednesday - Sunday from 11:00am - 5:00pm

Margaritas Worth Their Salt

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Brown-Forman, needed graphics for portable margarita carts used to serve their El Jimador brand tequila. These carts, which come in various sizes, are found in many arenas and theaters around Southern California including STAPLES Center, Citizen’s Business Bank Arena and Nokia Theatre LA Live.

Working with the cart’s manufacturer and patent holder, California Beverage Technologies, CBT, we created graphic panels using El Jimador’s branding elements coupled with additional graphic elements that help drive traffic to each cart.

Graphics for the base of the cart were photo printed, laminated and mounted to 3/16″ Gator Board. The graphics for the top of the cart are backlit transparency material and were mounted to 3/16″ milk plexiglass.

We hope you will agree, these graphics of margaritas are worth their salt.

Tag Your It

Our client, Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club, wanted to create a new experience with their fans that visit Honda Center and the many ice and roller hockey rinks the hockey club partners with. For this season, we have created a life-size POP for their G.O.A.L. program. One unique feature of this display is the two “Tags” on them.

Microsoft Tag is a new kind of bar code that connects almost anything in the real world to information, entertainment and interactive experiences on your mobile phone…when you scan a Tag using the free Tag Reader application on your mobile phone, it will automatically open a web page dedicated to the Ducks G.O.A.L. program.

Linking real-world object to deeper experiences on mobile phones started in Japan with QR Codes.  Originally used to track inventory for automobile makers, these 2D tags have evolved into much more just locating a bumper or steering wheel.

We encourage you to learn more about the Tags and to use the one above to log onto the linked website.

Painless Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, St. Jude Hospital, part of the St. Joseph Health System, wanted to create a soothing environment for their children’s dental clinic located in Buena Park. This particular facility is part of their community outreach program. They are committed to keeping everyone in their community healthy. Their young patients can now drift away on a cloud rather than staring into a bright lighting fixture. The staff at St. Jude wanted to make sure that their patients had a positive experience at the dentist office.

These cloud graphics were printed on our Day/Night transparency material, mounted to plexiglass, and then laminated with an easy-to-clean protective coating. We installed these graphic panels into the facility’s existing lighting fixtures. Photomation provided the staff at St. Jude with a turnkey solution by creating a soothing and relaxing focal point for their young patients…and we pulled this off painlessly.
