Project Scope/Client Needs

New Circles is a clothing bank that serves newcomers to Canada by providing clothing and education. They accept clothing donations at the side of the building, and their donors sometimes have difficulty locating the drop-off area. They had existing signage, but its placement needed to change to make it more visible from several directions.

Solution/Implementation

We were able to reuse existing signage by removing two different signs from two areas of the building and repurpose them into a visually appealing, strong, sign that more clearly pointed patrons to the clothing donation drop-off area. We constructed the sign using cedar posts set in concrete and fastened the signs to either side to make it visible from multiple directions.

With these signs removed from the building and installed on this custom sign post, it’s unmistakable where the drop off is now!

We made sure that the sign would be visible even through the busy street.

Signs still on the building and the beginnings of the sign structure.

4x4 cedar posts were used to construct this sign. The holes were dug and filled with concrete to ensure its sturdiness. Supports were put in place while the concrete cured.
