THROWBACK THURSDAY! Featuring: The Pines at Southmoor – 2008

Apartment living has been booming in the Fort Collins area since the turn of the 20th century. During 2008,  Monarch Investments acquired two multi-family properties: The Pines at Southmoor, in Greeley, and Ramblewood in Fort Collins. Both apartment communities offer similar amenities, such as bus transportation to local universities and city-wide destinations, as well as swimming pools, weight training facilities, and open areas for socializing.

After presenting several sign design ideas to Monarch, the company decided to use the same format for both apartment sites. They wanted a design that would effectively identify their brand – one that both apartment locations could share in shape, size, base and end-post treatment.  The signs were sandblasted into high-density urethane, featured hand-painted art elements, and triple-coated to withstand Colorado’s weather extremes. Individually hand-carved, gold leaf letters drew attention to each apartment complex name. When lined up back-to-back, each two-sided sign shared a metal finish cap that color-matched its borders and posts.

Both signs are still in use at the Greeley and Fort Collins locations.
