Product: Lobby Signs
Location: Florence, Kentucky
Client: Florence Baptist Church
Lobby signs are used to communicate many different messages, ideas and memories. Their versatility is not only in what they communicate, but what material in which they are made and, of course, their size. The material and size of a lobby sign can be as important as their purpose.
The Florence Baptist Church are in the process of launching a youth them called “The Way”. They also wanted lobby signs that would have a double purpose. First to remind their youth of some of the places that they have served and also to simply have attractive wall coverings for their newly remodeled youth area. Their graphic artist also understood that the youth area was a very large area. This meant that the lobby signs needed to be big, clean and match the style of the surrounding modern look of the room.
The staff at Florence Baptist Church decided that 8’ x 4’ signs which were made with original artwork and created from scenes of places served by the youth were the signs needed to communicate their message. The signs are simple, eye-catching and clean. They are made from full 8’ x 4’ sheets of ¼” clear acrylic and installed with 1” brushed aluminum stand-offs to give
them a dimensional look. The edges of the acrylic were sanded to give the sign a clean-glassy edge. The white space used in the design of the signs make these large lobby signs pop from the wall in this large room.
The smaller sign is made from routed ½” P95 acrylic. The text on the routed acrylic is printed with a fun “youth” font with varying spaced dots on clear laminate. This combination allows the color of the wall to show through the text in a unique way.
The arrows are printed vinyl that was wrapped around the ½” acrylic.
The combination of the excellent original artwork, the clean 8’ x 4’ acrylic substrate with the brushed aluminum 1” stand-offs is the perfect look
