Signs of the Times - January 2018 - 54

To save time, the panels for the new sign were routed,
not sandblasted.
within the confines of the client's
dimensions. Determined to create
a sign capable of withstanding the
winds, we increased the thickness of
the sign foam to 1½ in.
The setback of our first sign meant
that our new version would have to
be made as quickly as possible. To
adjust for the diminishing deadline,
we opted to have Tim and his team
rout our main signs rather than sandblast them ourselves. This gave us time
in our shop to increase the realism
of the toothbrushes by adding bristle
façades made from ½-in. PVC.
Once we received the routed components from TC, we quickly set to
priming, painting and assembling
our new design. The rigid setup of
the new layout proved slightly tricky
to transport, but we carefully delivered
the fully assembled sign to Massa
Dental and got it installed. Luckily
(or unluckily) another wind storm
blew through the hills a few days
later - a perfect opportunity to watch
the performance of our newly engineered sign. The new design stood
motionless against the wind.
Lesson learned and an attractive,
unique, handcrafted sign for a local
dental group. Look ma, no cavities!

JANUARY 2018

The redesigned sign stood firm in its first strong wind, polishing off this
project and learning experience.
