Sign Shop in San Franciscoby Paula on Friday 26 May, 2017
Is Dezign With a Z a sign shop in San Francisco? Well, yes, we make custom business signs of all types including custom wall decals, personalized wall murals, window films, 3D signs including LED channel letters and we are located in San Francisco. But we like to think we are more than your average sign shop – we offer custom graphic design and fabrication for things that technically don’t exist.
For instance, when working on the remodel of Haven’s office in San Francisco, their interior designer Nina Punzi had a vision on how the space was supposed to look. So we did what we know how to do best: we listened!
Like many of the local start-ups, they have an open floor plan with the exception of their conference room separated from the rest of the space by a door and 6 glass window panels. So to fight that “fish bowl” feeling, we’ve added some cool custom frosted window films displaying a satellite image of the SF Bay area, a great choice since they are in logistics.
For the main working area, some type of divider was needed to separate the space from the entrance and give employees a bit of privacy. The divider also helps create an entry way of sorts leading to a small lounge area with chairs and a couch.
There are no walls that could be use, so a custom wall decal or personalized wall mural were out of the question. Our only choice was to create something that could hang from the ceiling, after exploring using materials as acrylic, wood and metal, we settled on doing something a little softer.
Unlike every other sign shop, with our creative juices flowing; we designed and fabricated a felt hanging panel – a great solution for acoustic and also a wonderful way to divide their space without looking too harsh. The colors chosen were pretty neutral (black and white) but when placed together the piece actually looks quite posh. Their geometrical logo is centered on the piece, which is a great way to add branding to their entrance.
To hang the panels, we used vintage military turnbuckles, keeping it cohesive with their logistic business while looking extremely cool! We were so proud of how everything looked once installed, a great project that looks nothing but ordinary.
