A logo on the wall of a lobby or waiting area can create a very professional appearance and further reinforce the company’s brand. It certainly does far more to build the image of a business than the usual generic “wall art” would. And while flat or cutout graphics get the job done, backlit graphics dramatically kick up the appeal. Duncan Wilkie [Comsign Architectural Signage Inc., Edmonton, Alberta, Canada] recently fabricated a logo for a lobby wall and used LEDs to backlight the PVC letters.

“A long-time customer was doing a re-branding,” says Duncan, “and asked me if I could do an illuminated logo for them. I hadn’t done anything with LEDs before, but I decided there’s no time like the present. I did a bunch of research online and with my suppliers then ordered the LEDs and got started.

“I wanted to make everything in-house, so I decided to use 1-in. router-cut PVC board to make the channel letters. I was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out, and they were very pleased with the result. They are a video game developer, and it suited their business well.”
