Creative Signage for Boutique Living: Lucille
Nordeast Neighborhood, Minneapolis, MN
Sign Package: Unique canopy signs, LED lighted signs, monument sign, wall cabinet sign, interior ADA, room identification, and unit identification signs
Spectrum Sign Systems and Solhem continue their partnership in Nordeast neighborhood boutique living building: Lucille
Known for building beautiful, sustainable design-forward communities in the best Minneapolis neighborhoods, Solhem has done it again with its unique residential project: Lucille. When Solhem wanted creative signage for its new boutique living building, they reached out to Spectrum Signs.
The Lucille called for a canopy sign above the main entrances in a distinct font. Spectrum worked with the provided font to design and create signature signs that fit the aesthetics of the building and the neighborhood. The sign is a non-illuminated reverse channel letter set that projects over the face of the canopy. The Lucille sign showcases Spectrum’s creativity and attention to detail as it includes what appears to be a floating dot over the letter i.
The Lucille building also includes a single face wall cabinet sign as well as a monument sign. Spectrum worked with the general contractor who used the same brick from the building to build the base of the monument sign to tie both together with style. The limited space available for the sign was a challenge that the Spectrum team was able to help solve in the design phase.
The interior ADA, room identification, and unit identification signs were designed to mimic its sister property Frances, using inverted color schemes. Spectrum worked with Solhem’s desire for a minimalist interior sign presence and ADA regulations for font and braille size to create a distinctive and classic look.
This was a fun project and we appreciate being able to bring Solhem’s creative vision to life.
