Constructing an image of durability
By Steve Aust
A sign for a homebuilding company must convey an air of permanence – otherwise, customers might perceive “straw and sticks”-quality workmanship, not brick. Brix Design Inc. (Pensacola, FL) took the client’s existing nail graphic and color palette, and laid out the panel using CorelDRAW X6 software. The shop built the sign’s layer by routing sheets of PVC on a MultiCam 3000 CNC router, and secured the layers together with medium-viscosity PVC glue. To install the sign, the shop used stainless-steel countersunk anchor screws and a silicone adhesive. Brix Design decorated the letters using Benjamin Moore direct-to-metal water-based paint.
