Elegant stainless steel signs for the new wing of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

The much anticipated opening of the new wing of the VMFA occurs in May, 2010. In February, the Governor and distinguished guests were treated to a preview. ASG was on the scene beforehand, installing the sleek stainless steel signs that will designate rooms and wayfinding. We are excited to have been selected as the fabricator for this fabulous new addition to the cultural richness of Richmond, and look forward to enjoying the art--and the signs--for many years to come.

Green award plaques for the James River Green Business Council

ASG is a member of the JRGBC, and when we were asked to make this year’s award plaques, we were happy to oblige. Our bamboo plaques with laser engraved text and compression fit bases used sustainable design and materials consistent with the mission of the Council and consistent with our eco-friendly philosophy. Sponsoring the Awards Luncheon was an honor and we will continue to support green building in our community through our membership and our commitment to environmentally friendly sign solutions.

HoneyTree Apartments gets updated look from ASG

What a difference a sign makes. This large apartment complex was getting a renovation facelift, and the old signs looked tired and dated. ASG designed a fresh new look for the sign program, including the main and secondary monument signs, directional signs and building signs.

Guess who made the new signs for Ellwood Thompson’s Market and new Coffee Shop?

We love this project for a local market offering natural foods and locally grown produce. The brand identity guides the entire project. The architect-owner and his designer came to ASG to collaborate on flushing out the design and on achieving the most environmentally friendly sign solutions possible. Signs and fixtures produced by ASG incorporate recycled material, and even include reclaimed traffic signs reincarnated as display tables.

University of Mary Washington campus gets updated signage

A new University president has a vision for the campus. ASG completes a comprehensive campus sign survey, designs a new look for all exterior signs, removes existing signs and fabricates and installs campus-wide signage in a phased program. The signage unifies the campus and creates a consistent identity for the University.

New donor sign lights up at Children’s Hospital

Donor signs don’t have to be boring. This large lit sign takes its inspiration from a swoosh design in the adjacent flooring, and brings the motion, color and light up high onto the wall. The sign is consistent with the positive, child-friendly energy of the rest of Children’s Hospital signage program fabricated by ASG.
