Out of This World Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our Client, Shlemer+Algaze+ Associates Interior and Architecture, called us to help design, print and install interior décor at the new branch for the Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union they were designing.

Nick Ybarra, Project Manager CID IIDA from Shlemer+Algaze+ Associates Interior and Architecture, contacted his Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores, to assist with the project. Nick has worked with Francisco before and he wanted someone he could trust and someone with the quality and experience Photomation has provided him in the past.

Francisco worked closely with Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union executives Pattyl Aposhian Kasparian, Vice President – Marketing and Development, and John Barnfather, Senior Vice President/Chief Information Officer, to gather images and design concepts for the 63′ wall. Using multiple images of planets, nebulas and constellations the wallcovering was printed with 3M 180C adhesive vinyl with 3M 8520 Lamination.

Photomation also fabricated the entrance sign with aluminum and dimensional lettering. For the conference room we added frosted vinyl to add privacy and a 10′ Vinyl logo. Custom acrylic frames with beveled and flamed polished edges were also fabricated and installed for this project.

The Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union is located inside the facilities of JPL/NASA in La Cañada/Flintridge, Ca. When it was all completed, and the facility was ready to open, the graphics were out of this world!

Our client, Interior Designer Lana Galang, presented a challenge to her friend, Photomation Solutions Specialist, Mike Mertz, to capture images from over-sized original oil paintings and produce art reproductions for the new restaurant she was designing, Mazz Bar & Grill. Restaurant owner, Ray Garcia Sr., had a particular look and feel in mind. Mike and Lana reviewed materials and decided on Photomation’s ‘Stucco’ canvas-type wallcovering that has a heavy knife-painting like texture that was perfect for this Mexican flavor sit-down eatery and bar.

We printed these four massive artwork reproductions, some nearly 7 feet tall with widths up to 24 foot wide. Mike then coordinated installation with our staff of professional hangers in time to meet the restaurant’s grand opening schedule. In addition to the artwork, we produced several large custom-framed mirrors hung throughout the restaurant. The result was warm and inviting environment as well as a thrilled interior designer and restaurant owner.

Mazz offers delicious comfort food and drink in an inviting and beautiful setting. Visit Mazz Bar & Grill at 3555 Riverside Drive, Suite 100, Riverside, CA 90205 - in the Riverside Plaza. Check them out when you are in the area. After all, it is a Mazz, Mazz, Mazz, Mazz World!
