West Village – a home away from home for the holidays!

After 10 years or success, West Village updated their logos and needed to enhance signage on their property with their new look.  They chose North Coast Signs to partner with them for a variety of projects.  Complementing the building architecture and branding colors, we created new signage to enhance the beauty of this property.

Here are some of the projects completed just in time for the holidays – the most wonderful time of the year!

West Village – Illuminated Monument:

The monument at the intersection of Canon and Avenida Encinas displays the logos of the three main properties:  West Inn & Suites, Bistro West and West Steak & Seafood.  The BEFORE photo shows how it looked with the old logos.  The AFTER / NIGHT photos show the new look. Each logo was made with push-through letters on aluminum pan frames, with new LED  illumination. Black lettering with perforated vinyl gives high contrast by day, yet shines white at night. We provided removal of the old sign faces, and installation of the new faces.

As you can see from the BEFORE and the new DAY / NIGHT photos, tasteful signage for a beautiful building.

To enhance the entrance to the West Steak & Seafood we provided an illuminated post & panel sign with backlit dimensional letters. This illuminated post and panel sign provides sophisticated signage for this upscale establishment.  The frame measures 50” wide x 42” tall x 6” deep, routed aluminum panel face with ½” thick push-thru acrylic for the West Steak & Seafood logo, halo-lit with internal LEDs (UL Listed).  The sign is a beautiful silver finish, consistent with other original restaurant signs on the property.

To navigate the property, the new directional parking lot signage shows the way. After an extensive site survey, we created a wayfinding plan, to help guide their guests. Each sign panel is double-sided, and measures 24″tall x 28.5″ wide. The panels are supported by 2” thick aluminum square posts with a baked enamel duranodic bronze finish. Each sign has the West Village logo in reverse cut tan premium cast vinyl to match the building exterior paint colors. All lettering is made with white reflective vinyl for high visibility at night.

Inside the West Inn & Suites lobby, there are several ADA Signs displayed.  The “Warning” Sign measures 10” x 13”.  The bottom layer is 1/4” thick transparent green acrylic. The top layer is 1/4” thick P95 with the information applied to the second surface with a vinyl print, lettering in a custom pantone color. The “Library & Breakfast Room” sign measures 7.5” square.  Constructed similarly to the “Warning” sign, these have the added features of ADA compliant tactile lettering with raised braille. Each panel is custom made and assembled to match existing signs.

Another interior sign for the West Inn is a breakfast bar sign.  Designed to sit on a counter top and greet guests with information about the breakfast.  We provided a custom printed full color Giclée print that is 8.5″ wide by 14″ tall,  directly on 1/8″ thick aluminum with a durable clear coat over the top for added protection and durability. It includes an 8.5″ wide brushed aluminum stand with an angled slot  to hold the graphic panel.  This provides a beautiful sign, but with the durability to withstand the rigors of a food service environment.
