After a company wide vote the Sign of the Quarter was awarded to First Alliance Credit Union! We asked for those those involved if they had any comments and these were the responses:
"The Sales Uncovery process sold this job. At the end of the first meeting the VP said that he felt that La Crosse Sign will be getting this project. He threw out the Architect's design and worked with us. A trusted relationship was formed and we have supplied signs for a number of their locations. The biggest challenge was locating this sign on the site. The location the Architect had noted was technically in the utility easement. Also, the next door neighbor had placed a 300' site line restriction on the that same side of the building, so nothing could have been placed there. They even went to court to fight it. In all other possible locations there were many underground utilities. We suggested to sacrifice one of parking spaces and place the sign there. This location has turned out to work very well. Cool elements on this sign are the clear push-thru acrylic letters that offer depth to an otherwise flat face. The top and side of the sign matches the architecture of the building, making the sign a true part of the property. There is a line of accent lighting that runs up the side of the sign that grabs attention at night. This is the best sign in this area." -Jeff, Sign Consultant
"When Jon gave me the job I was pretty excited to take on such a large project. Knowing how much floor space it was going to take up, planning out the construction was crucial. Taking it on one section at a time it quickly took shape and tied together really well. Making each sign section detachable not only made the use of space more efficient, but made for a rather painless installation." - Tyler, Fabrication Specialist
