In business, as in life, our success on the outside begins on the inside. When Buffini & Company, now the number–one Coaching and training company in North America, recently moved their corporate headquarters to new facilities in Carlsbad, California, they called on North Coast Signs to meet their interior signage needs for a new lobby sign.
Just as this prestigious company challenges it’s employees and clients to rise to a higher standard, it was only fitting that the interior details of this new facility needed to do the same. To attain that end required a focused approach to deliver appropriate solutions that would reflect the excellence and professionalism inherent in everything they do. The result was a package of interior sign details for their employees and visitors that would inspire them to strive for the excellence delivered by the organization.
It all began with a striking execution of the Buffini & Company logo in a lobby sign for the front entry wall. This design features a unique application of materials to add texture and highlights to custom background panels, which provide a high contrast backdrop to the elegant brushed aluminum dimensional letters on standoffs.
This beautiful sign was then framed by hand painted renderings of their Mission and Values statements in an authentic Gaelic font, reflective of the Irish heritage of the company’s founder.
Once inside the halls and office spaces, every workspace is clearly identified with nameplates featuring a subtle curve and brushed aluminum finish, which draw elements from wall sconce light fixtures and other built-in furniture elements in the facility. Key to this choice was a design that also allows company management to change and update employee names and titles as needed in the future using a supplied template with colored paper and a standard office printer. A model of elegance with efficiency.
These were further supplemented by custom wall plates for the executive office suite with a sliding cover, featuring the company icon, to reveal either a ‘Do Not Disturb’ message or the company tagline: “Work by Referral, Live the Good Life!” Another functional detail to the facility was the addition of a snap frame in the same finish outside their primary meeting room which allows them to insert personalized messages or schedules for guests.
Lastly, in putting the finishing touch on the impression of excellence on all Buffini & Company employees and guests, North Coast Signs provided custom restroom signs with a brushed aluminum finish to meet ADA tactile and braille specifications.
