Lately, customers seem to prefer signs made with recycled or repurposed materials. For example, Associates in Periodontics liked the idea of using old cedar fence pickets. Additionally, they liked combining the seasoned “old” wood with snazzy “new” gold leaf graphics. Interestingly, there’s an attractive, contemporary fusion that happens when revitalized old wood and shimmering gold leaf share the same artistic space. Ultimately, it’s as if the two materials were destined to co-exist in 21st century art, architecture and outdoor advertising.
Building the Associates in Periodontics sign
To begin with, our client liked the rustic cachet of exposed roofing nails – lots of them. (In addition, the nails serve to strengthen the sign.) First, we selected and cut the fence pickets. Next, we sanded and stained them. Then, we combined two gold leaf techniques: First, we gold leafed the logo in 23k gold. Additionally, this included an interior gold leaf border. Second, we surrounded both with a wide, variegated gold leaf border. Then, we gold leafed the entire name, “Associates in Periodontics.” Finally, a powder-coated metal frame finished the sign’s construction. The result was a sign with rustic elegance.
