Awning Ideas / February 15, 2019 / Leann Parker
To that end local businesses and larger chains are seeking out commercial signage designers and manufacturers who can bring their brands to life whether through a traditional sign posted near their doorway or in the form of an awning atop their building s facade. Signs and awnings are more than a message they re a symbol. Unlike a message which delivers specific information symbols are a way of projecting and marketing the emotional connection consumers have with particular products. Think about the Nike Swoosh. What comes to mind? Sleek? Cool? Perhaps even the motion of a running foot? The Swoosh doesn t just inform the consumer that it s Nike it s sending a symbolic message of what Nike stands for. The same goes for the Audi rings which like the Olympics suggest strength in unity.
Awnings don t require poles (which would clutter the view) since they are attached with spring-loaded mounts. The "retractable" type of awnings differ from basic immobile awnings in that they last longer (can be rolled up in damaging weather) and allow a space to be used in a variety of ways--both drinks in the shade and stargazing for example. On the large end of the spectrum awnings today can be upwards of 30 feet in width and around 14 feet in depth. They are controlled automatically via weather sensors or a remote control button or by hand using a manual crank. Either way these awnings can be unfurled or retracted in less than a minute. What are the practical implications of this? When you want to cool an area down like a concrete poolside or overheated deck shade is just seconds away.
Captivating signage creation is tricky to accomplish; however hiring an organization with a proven track record means that half the job is already done. Quality signage companies don t just mount and hang your sign; they re a team player in deciding what works and what doesn t work addressing an assortment of aesthetic needs as they come up. Working with the clients regarding every aspect of the awnings they ensure that the idea comes to reality. Additionally awnings also add a distinctive curb appeal to outdoor spaces setting the tone and transforming a space through custom lettering colors patterns and designs. However for optimum impact awnings need to be designed and installed in way that is sure to attract passersby. A good commercial sign and awning company will begin by collaborating with you on the objective design and aesthetics of the project.
