July 2017 – October 2017: Municipal Highway Signage
Two highway signs, one on the east and one on the west end of town, needed to be replaced to showcase their new branding.
The team at the Town of Edson had a concept in mind but were looking for some guidance to get their entrance signs just right. We incorporated some of the existing site conditions to keep costs low.
Our team moved the existing structures, removed and staged the installation to figure out if anything was salvageable from the foundation. We worked the design to fit what was there and gave them a unique cost-effective solution.
These highway signs are large and illuminate beautifully (a departure from the town’s old highway entrance signs). The Edson blue really had to pop for these LED signs – we opted for blue LEDs to pair with the blue facing.
Both signs were manufactured in our Edmonton shop and shipped out on a couple flatbeds, assembled onsite, and smoothly installed!
August 2018 – December 2018: Trailhead Signage Program
As part of Edson’s 2018 Trails initiative, we designed, manufactured, and installed trailhead signs in 6 locations; motifs from their branding were worked into the design and there is clear consistency with their highway signage as well.
