The Sign Spotlight - Issue 1 - AVEDA

Welcome to the first issue of: The Sign Spotlight.

Here we turn the spotlight on one particular project or client. Many of our sign projects entail more than just one sign. Some can evolve into multiple signs using various materials and sign making methods. Some develop into ongoing projects while others can expand to include displays, lit signs, interior decor elements, interactive projects and more.

Check back often for more editions of The Sign Spotlight.

At Aveda in Victoria, BC, you will see the dimensional lettering we created to reproduce their logo, complete with stand-offs.
3D Lettering
Aveda Institute Victoria is the first international Aveda Institute and the only Aveda Institute in Canada
who provides both the Cosmetology program (Hair Stylist) and the Esthiology program (Spa).
The Aveda project involved a number of wall signs and wall graphics including their Statement of Purpose, printed vintage photographs mounted to walls behind their counter and other training areas.

Wall Graphic w/3D Letters
Inspirational messages and quotes have become popular to the point of displaying them on walls in homes and businesses. The quality of printable materials has improved and now signage can be displayed almost anywhere including the floor.
vinyl lettering
Cut vinyl messages were mounted to the walls throughout the training
facility to inspire and motivate the students. 
Floor Signage

Sometimes signs can turn into displays such as these product and point of purchase displays. Printed graphics combined with dimensional lettering help to create a bigger impact.
