“When we were building our new Cancer & Rehab Center, we wanted signage that reflected the aesthetics of the modern facility and a special donor wall area that recognized the wonderful support of our community.  Acorn Sign Graphics worked with us to design and produce outstanding signage that compliments our facility.  The donor wall isn’t just a sign; it is a work of art!   Working with Acorn Sign Graphics continues to be a pleasure!”  Faye Matthews, Director of Marketing, Community Memorial Healthcenter.

Our Challenge: Develop a complete sign program for CMH’s new satellite Cancer and Rehab Center that speaks to people of all ages and walks of life in the community…signs that integrate structural details of the new architecture of the building and that communicate a professional image, as well as an uplifting and non-institutional feeling.

Deliverable: A phased program to include design, fabrication and installation.

Something we think is cool: Creative factors like the subtle design of swirled metal elements in the donor recognition and interior signs really pop, making a unique and cohesive family of signage. The angled arc at the top of the signs suggests a friendly directional message, “swooshing” visitors toward their destination. And flexible, modular components are designed to be easily modified in the future.
