For its $75 million expansion project, The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY, appointed ID Signsystems to create a series of museum statement signs to support several new interior and exterior exhibit areas throughout the Museum.
IDS was selected through a competitive bidding process and our expression of how we would translate the Museum’s vision into tangible exhibit pieces. We meticulously translated design concepts into large 3D renderings, offering a clear visual representation of the proposed sign elements.
Using our value-engineering process, each piece was manufactured to strike a balance between meeting the client’s budget and maintaining high-quality craftsmanship and state-of-the-art techniques.
The Museum expansion includes a new 24,000 sq. ft. ESL Digital Worlds exhibit for which IDS created a 12-foot larger-than-life game cartridge sign as a focal point at the exhibit entry. The sign was fabricated using a push-thru illumination technique for the three-dimensional lettering and contains adjustable LED illumination, giving the client direct control of the sign’s illumination.
