One of the most fun aspects of our business is that we never know what the next project may be. The only certain thing is that we can always count on it being something crazy that will tax our creative and problem-solving abilities. Building a sandcastle that towered more than 24-ft. tall was this year’s challenge.
One of our favorite clients approached us last fall and asked us to create a new entrance icon for his water park. It had to be something that would make everyone stop for a selfie as they came into his facility for some fun. We’ve been itching to do a project for this park for more than fifteen years. This was the perfect opportunity to open the door to a lot more projects in the future.
This new sign would be a part of a replacement for an aging play structure for younger guests of the water park. It had to include slides for toddlers and was to sit in the center of a shallow pool. We suggested a giant sandcastle, complete with an oversized shovel and bucket, that could prove to be a natural photo op. He loved the idea and asked for some concept art.
