Building Relationships with Contractors

Developing genuine trust and providing a value beyond the products and services we provide our customers, has always been a foundational block of our relationships at Indigo Signworks. Not only do we work directly with the final clients, we also form business relationships with real estate developers, designers, architects, engineers, marketing firms, general contractors and consultants, just to name a few. With their intimate knowledge of the overall project, working with Indigo Signworks during development and deployment ensures a successful signage package! We really take the time to hear our clients out, learning to understand their needs. Taking their very valuable ideas, suggestions and perspectives, and engaging experienced signage professionals to create a option that will make our client’s new or existing business successful.

Gaining Perspectives

We know that our clients don’t work with signage everyday, as we are not professionals in their area of expertise. As much as we try, we don’t always agree with our client’s perspective. We respect their request, and work to develop concepts that we believe will serve them well.  Our best relationships have come from clients that we have very open dialog, so that we grow to become a proven resource to the way they market their business. Truly great relationships that are most beneficial, don’t come from those that think alike, they come from gaining perspectives from others. We strive to build that kind of relationship with our client, and have been doing that for over two decades.

McKenzie County Law Enforcement Center

One such project Indigo Signworks has recently completed was with Construction Engineers of Grand Forks, ND, for McKenzie County Law Enforcement Center.  Indigo Signworks received an “Invitation to Bid” from Construction Engineers for McKenzie County Law Enforcement Center in Watford City, ND.  Sales representative, Nathan Helm, went right to work after going through all of the signage specifications. The bids were accepted, and Nathan worked closely with Jon Steen, Project Manger at Construction Engineers, during the almost two-year build.

“I’ve enjoyed working with you as well and appreciate how organized you are in your emails and tracking the many changes the architect & owner have thrown our way. It makes my job easier the way you handle those items.”

– Jon Steen, Project Manager at Construction Engineers

Minnesota National Bank Updating their Signage upon their New Branding

Posted on by Indigo Signworks, Inc. in Articles, Customer Spotlight, Featured Jobs Leave a comment

MN National Bank Signage Updates

Minnesota National Bank’s history dates back to 1902 when they were known as the Merchant’s National Bank of Sauk Centre. In 1987, the bank was sold to a group of local owners to become First National Bank. In 2008, they merged with Lake Country State Bank and were renamed Minnesota National Bank, retaining the tradition of being a community bank with expanded offices in Sauk Centre, Long Prairie and Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. MNB is in full-swing updating their signage to match their new branding. MNB, along with HTG Architects, out of Eden Prairie, MN, then made contact with Indigo in early 2015 to discuss fully updating the entire Long Prairie location’s signage needs.

Long Prairie, MN

Minnesota National Bank, Long Prairie began the process of a building renovation, which in turn, evolved into a new branding signage package. (see photos below) During the initial conversation with HTG Architects, we had to discuss the best way to overcome structural obstacles of the existing building to try to implement individual channel letters on an outer wall, as there was no access for wiring behind it. It was decided to move forward with a hinged retro frame LED illuminated cabinet on the building front, and refurbishing the existing cabinet on the back of the building. The pylon sign covered multiple elements of our industry with routed push-thru acrylic letters on the top portion, back to back 15.85mm Daktronics displays, LED illuminated cabinets with rigid dividers and stud mounted PVC address numbers on the base cladding. They were very pleased with the halo effect of the push-thru look night illumination on the top routed aluminum faces.

Pelican Rapids, MN

With the completion of the Long Prairie location, we then approached the image at their Pelican Rapids location. After a number of discussed options, they decided to replicate the Long Prairie pylon for that location. It’s currently in production (see photos below) and hope to see it up before Christmas. With a second electronic message center location, the Daktronics cloud-based control suite was converted from a local access to a shared control for multiple locations. This will allow them to edit and publish presentations already created from branch to branch with the same matrix size message centers.

Sauk Centre, MN

Lastly, their new 3-story building currently under construction for their main branch office in Sauk Centre will have incredible exposure for their new image, located on the entrance corner of the Super Walmart. The pylon will incorporate the same elements as their previously fabricated structures with a few added tenant panels, three large LED illuminated wall cabinets, some directional signage, and two entrance monuments. (see photos below) The completion of this project will tie all the branches together with an updated first-impression and Daktronics software.

It’s truly been a pleasure to work with them as well as HTG Architects on these projects!
