Dandelion Kids Storefront Signage/Graphics

Signage, graphics and sandwich board for Dandelion Kids second store at Suter Brook Village in Port Moody, BC. Strict signage rules, and a modest budget dictated what we would be doing at their new store. This worked well because Dandelion has always run a modest design aesthetic, with a strong concentration on well-designed window displays that often do much of the speaking for their stores. 3D foam-core letters are mounted onto the existed metal structure overhead, on the windows vinyl cut artwork was applied.

Salient Group Terminus Signage

Following through with our ‘the end is near’ concept, we carried that message through to terminus’ completion (terminus meaning ‘the end’); ‘the end is near’ became ‘the end is here’. For many people, the terminus building will be remembered as the propped up building that burned down in Gastown almost a decade ago, so, ‘the end is here’ carries several meanings, but if you walk down that part of Water Street today, it’s quite a different place than it was before the fire.

The signage for the residential homes was designed to fill the commercial storefronts of The Salient Group’s terminus buildings on Water Street in Vancouver. With the translucent blue vinyl covering the majority of the windows, flood lights were used at night to shine through from the inside, showcasing both the retail space as well as creating a glowing blue luminance out onto the street. One of the windows was left blank with only a frosted white coating (shown in the second photo, on the left) where a video projection of a fly-through animation of The Salient Group’s Water Street/Gastown renovations would look once completed.
