Case Study Spotlight - Arthrex

The plans were ambitious: an industry leader in arthroscopic surgical equipment wanted to build a six-story office building, a nine-floor parking garage, a private hotel with 80 keys, a wellness center, and a medical clinic. All at the same time. Constructing a world headquarters requires thousands of signs that run the gamut of the industry. Arthrex turned to us to ensure their image was conveyed through every piece. In turn, CSD wanted to provide an experience and outcome as sleek and well-honed as this respected company’s brand and identity. https://www.creativesigndesigns.com/project/arthrex/

The Sarasota Modern Hotel project features a very diverse mix of signage, graphics, and architectural features and truly showcases CSD’s ability to provide a turnkey experience for our clients.

SIGNAGE FEATURES:
- Entry Signage: ¼” thick aluminum waterjet cut lettering, stud-mounted to hardwood building facade. While minimal in nature, the signage spans the entire entry area of the hotel and is often used by guests as a backdrop for social media posts. The metal on wood aesthetic perfectly captures the mid-century modern flair seen around the property.

- ADA and Wayfinding Signage: Unique 3-part layered acrylic and Rowmark signage showcases look and function. The red rule line on the signage and color combination is an on-brand element that helps carry the essence of The Modern throughout the property.

- Vinyl Graphics: Digitally printed vinyl wrap floral patterns inside the elevator cabs provide the flair and experience the hotel wanted to achieve. Rule lines and minimalist vinyl distraction graphics provide safety and subtle brand touches throughout.

- LED Bar Feature: Offset stacked ¼” thick frosted acrylic panels are back-lit with an RGB LED system providing the bar at Rudolph’s the ability to change the entire feel of the room with the touch of a button. This unique feature is truly a staple of the restaurant’s image.

- Neon: Red skeleton neon tubing suspended at the street-level entry to the restaurant. This is another on-brand touch accomplished by neon signage. It effectively captures the classic feel of Rudolph’s brand mixed with the modern artistic touch of the property.

Custom LED Neon tube 5’-4”” x 3” H style fabrication open face welded fabricated channel letters with routed 1.5” PVC mounting tray and pushed through LED neon tube rope lighting and 2×2 aluminum angle back framing for mounting to structure, digitally printed conforming vinyl graphics for map heat applied to corrugated metal panels.

Congratulations to our friends at Oronzo Honest Italian on their recent opening and coverage in the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

When fabricating the main entrance sign we used 3 sets of flat cut out letters to achieve the white and orange with the blue shadow effect. By using standoffs between the white and orange copy and the blue we were able to achieve the shadow effect - which looks great all lit up!

"For Oronzo, Tampa's new tech-forward, fast-casual Italian restaurant, opening during a pandemic seems like good timing" Read the full article here: https://www.bizjournals.com/tampabay/news/2020/07/14/oronzo-italian-restaurant-opens-in-new-tampa.html

Our project is now 4 months old, (with a contract signed in early August of this year). Necessary information was not requested by Creative Signs until weeks, sometime months, after the contract was signed. It was over a month before Creative Signs requested information needed to submit for permitting. Multiple requests for pictures of progress on our project are ignored, with only promises to send them. We are continually handed off to other employees who are briefed on our project once they take over. Repeated requests for owner contact information are completely ignored. There is no accountability and this has been a miserable experience. As a project manager and business owner since 1976, this is one of the most unprofessional experience I have encountered.
