Our client Live Nation is the largest live entertainment company. Each year, signage for new Live Nation sponsors needs to be installed throughout Hollywood Casino/Amphitheater (located in Tinley Park, IL) before concert season opens in May.
To accommodate a lucrative new sponsor, Live Nation needed several graphics spec’d, produced and installed in less than a week. Normally, a project of this scope would require at least 2-3 weeks to completion.
As “Printers of the Impossible”, we took this project on without blinking an eye.
We had one day to get to the venue, get all the pertinent measurements and information.
The lead staff at the venue puts their trust in us to determine every aspect of a project, including exact sizes, what materials to use, how to mount/install the graphics and how the hell to get it done in time.
We printed on 6 different materials and installed all the graphics over 2 days with three separate crews.
As part of The Cosmopolitan Hotel’s effort to connect with high-end clientele, they challenged us to develop a traveling version of one of their hotel rooms.
It was necessary to be able to set up the traveling display on sand, grass or in the middle of a major city to ensure they could reach the target market on their turf.
It was also of vital importance to be able to ship the structure at a moment’s notice and hire skilled crews in each market to quickly set up and dismantle the display.
We had many meetings, discussions and design revisions and then the project was shelved.
When the client called to green-light the project, we had less than 5 weeks to build the structure. This type of build would typically take 8-10 weeks to complete.
We designed it as a modular structure, so we could piece it together and easily dismantle it like a puzzle at each location.
We designed, manufactured, transported, setup/dismantled and stored the structure for two years.
We set up at the Deutsche Bank Golf Tournament in Boston (just off the 18th hole), in/on South Beach (actually on the sand), the Meat Packing District in Manhattan, Universal Studios in LA and on the Las Vegas strip.
Alliant asked an agency client of ours to redevelop its logo and develop a new brand campaign. We were asked to consult on different concepts for exterior display of the new Alliant branding.
We offered suggestions on sizes and materials to help Alliant realize its vision, including material testing to determine if the ideas would work as proposed.
The project included two locations – both of their headquarters that were being remodeled at the time. Our work scope included printing and installation of temporary graphics for pre-construction as well as permanent graphics once the remodel was complete.
We received artwork from our client and handled the process from that point forward.
We produced the artwork, created the temporary graphics and then returned to Alliant’s locations in six months to replace them with permanent graphics.
We were able to adjust the graphics and adapt to the changing environment.
We worked with building management and the Alliant team to coordinate the best placement and install times, etc.
We continue to work with our agency client and Alliant on many projects.
We’re excited to continue this partnership as Alliant expands its HQ and moves another location to a larger facility next year.
Through the work we’ve done, Alliant is able to promote its brand internally – and improve employee morale.
Out of the blue we got a call from a marketing agency that we had not worked with before.
The agency’s client knew of us and wanted us to produce and install their signage.
The project included interior and exterior graphics. The client also wanted us to build a light wall.
We met with the construction team and marketing agency to develop a plan of attack.
Significant planning was required as there were multiple materials, graphics and locations.
We were given the go-ahead to print and prep materials – even though the space wasn’t constructed. This required constant communication with the on-site construction team and two return trips to verify. Measure twice, install once!
Even though graphic files were not received until the 11th hour installation was completed on time and the light wall was a perfect fit.
The light wall had less than 1/32″ space around the perimeter. The interior mural was a thing of beauty and all of the other graphics fit the specs exactly.
Not only did the client praise our efforts, but the building owner sent a note of gratitude. We pulled this project off in a short amount of time and got it right the first time.
