2021 is coming to an end and it’s time for reflection. Let’s take a look at the best branding projects we brought to life over the past year. We’re excited to share with you our year in review.

Our sign making company achieved a lot during the last 12 months. We feel lucky to have worked on visionary projects for remarkable brands such as Coca-Cola, Qatar Airways, BYD, Nordstrom, Lamborghini and beyond. 

Best Branding Projects Beginning With the First Half of the Year 

Below, you’ll find the most effective branding projects we completed in the first six months of 2021.

1. January: Branding Project for Nordstrom

Our expert crew at Front Signs did multiple outdoor branding projects for Nordstrom stores, including dimensional letter signage and window decal designs. This branding project creates a professional identity fit for different locations and parts of their buildings. The ultra-modern and unique storefront signs capture people’s attention both day and night thanks to illuminated features.

2. February: Branding Design Project for Agave Azul 

We’re very proud of the complete restaurant branding our team achieved for Agave Azul using both indoor and outdoor designs. We decorated and branded the location with different mediums including backlit solutions, channel letter signs, reception designs and beyond. The dominant color is blue to create a mystical and calming atmosphere with carefully paired lighting systems and styles.

3. March: Branding Example for Ecco Studio

We used custom business signage made of premium vinyl to cover the interior office walls of the premises. These branded graphics make the studio space pop with popular game and comic book scenes and characters. The overall design of the wall visuals makes you feel like you’re on the set of an action movie while the sleek logo prints remind you that you’re at Ecco Studio.

4. April: Branding Project for The Cube Santa Clarita 

We installed sizable free standing corporate event signage made of painted aluminum at the entrance of The Ice and Entertainment Center. The striking sculptural design for The Cube Santa Clarita is white and blue to match the architectural style of the building. It features the name of the brand written in a unique form on a tilted cube with 360 visibility that won’t go unnoticed.

5. May: Signage Project Solutions for Qatar Airways

This branding project for Dulles Airport in Virginia was our first time working with an airline. We selected high quality vinyl decals with premium adhesive properties to represent the Qatar Airways brand. The vibrant prints display a promotion for their Qsuite space with a high-resolution photo as well as the company logo and motto for the campaign. Calming purple tones and a satisfied customer’s face inspire a positive reaction before passengers board their flight.

We used a variety of materials from durable lexan and aluminum to dibond and wood.

Coca Cola’s exterior and interior designs are strategically harmonized using a range of unique features.
