Signs Alive Inc., an Oakville, Ont.-based sign shop, was hired by customer service consulting firm Teleperformance Canada to create a feature sign for the latter’s office makeover in downtown Toronto.
Using Google Maps as inspiration, the sign company designed and manufactured a custom digitally printed vinyl wrap for a 4.6-m (15-ft) diameter drop ceiling. This wrap is a visual of Toronto’s financial district from the online Google Maps satellite view. A 152.4-mm (6-in.) loop of Toronto’s skyline covered the height of the drop ceiling to complement the map view.
The office columns were wrapped with digitally printed foliage scenes. The vibrant greens of the foliage instantly brighten up the space. Finally, dimensional letters that represent the iconic Google logo were installed on each column to finish the project.
