In busy cities like Los Angeles and Santa Monica, it can be difficult for drivers to effortlessly find their destinations and ample parking. Signs make it easier for drivers to safely find and arrive at their desired location. Over the years, the Curcio team has designed custom signage for clients like the Citadel Outlets, Old Pasadena, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Staples Center, and more. This week, we share a few pictures of our favorite signs and remind facility managers of their importance.
El Camino College
Signs add character to your building and complement a school’s brand. One of our favorite signs is the famed El Camino College bell we brought to life for one of the school’s buildings. This project was exciting, as there was some history to it! The college’s logo is the bell because it represents the El Camino Real. The symbol is known to be a tribute to California’s first road.
The Citadel Outlets
A citadel is known as a fortress, so creating a look that matched this palace-like structure in the City of Commerce was a fun challenge. Curcio offers graphics programs to ensure your sign not only serves its function but also looks good to match your building or business. If your building makes a statement, then your signs should do the same to catch attention.
This project also has some historic roots, as Adolph Schleicher envisioned the mall to be as grand as the palace built for King Sargon II of Assyria. We created signs that incorporated the Citadel’s logo and matched colors to accompany the royal look. When designing these types of signs, it is crucial to consider if drivers can see them from far distances. They need to know where to go so they quickly park and begin shopping.
Media Studios North
Numbers make it easy for people to find where they parked, and they also clearly identify other areas of the parking structure. This sign we designed for Media Studios North does just that by noting where the stairs are located. Our team has also created other types of signage that direct drivers and pedestrians toward electric charging stations, elevators, and more.
We have worked with cities like Old Pasadena to make navigating through traffic and the city easier for drivers and pedestrians. Signs should be easy for people to glance at when they are on the road, and they should know where to go within a matter of seconds. This sign in particular also increases visibility at night with its lighting features.
