One of a Kind Interior Signage for SMOKE BARBEQUE & BREW
Shooting Star Casino has asked us to be a part of a fun new project at their Mahnomen location. SMOKE Barbeque & Brew was conceived to replace Whispering Winds Restaurant. In March of 2017, the doors opened and it has been wildly popular with the Shooting Star patrons.
CREATION OF THE SMOKE SIGN
Indigo Signworks was given a logo concept, and was asked to take on the task of designing and producing a unique sign to help showcase the new restaurant. After some consultation and conceptual meetings, we felt strongly about our concept moving forward and began the engineering and shop drawings to make their new sign a reality.
The new “SMOKE” sign features some fun animations and lighting techniques. We began with Indigo Signworks exclusive Halo Deluxe lighted letters; layered with a translucent acrylic base and an opaque PVC printed face. This ensured that the letters would light only around the perimeter, giving it the look that the client wanted. Below the main “SMOKE” copy, we utilized a hammered metal laminate on PVC for the “Barbeque & Brew”. This laminate gave the sign that “smokehouse” feel the client was after.
What made this sign truly special was the flame component of the logo. Indigo was asked to create motion and movement to the flame utilizing programmable LED lighting. After careful thought of layout and programing, we were able to achieve an animated flame that gives SMOKE a noticeable presence on a busy gaming floor.
We are proud to continue to provide the goods and services that Shooting Star Casino requests and look forward to their next fun challenge!
