Illuminated Channel Letters & LED Signage: David A. Straz, Jr. Center
Illuminated Channel Letters & LED Signage
When the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts needed new LED signage, Creative Sign Designs was the natural choice. We teamed up with architect John Toppe of Toppe Consultants, Inc. and Lorrin Shepard, Senior Vice President and Chief Operational Officer of the Straz Center to consult, design, fabricate and install the custom signs and LED channel letters.
We provided all exterior signs for the rebranding project, including four sets of illuminated channel letters and stars on two different elevations of the performing arts center, and a new, 16 mm full-color Daktronics LED message board mounted on the center’s covered pedestrian walkway.
The company signs required 100 gallons of paint, 33,000 pounds (over 16 tons) of aluminum that end-to-end would reach a distance of 3 miles, and enough LEDs to light up a one-mile stretch of road. A team of very talented individuals devoted over 20,000 hours to the LED signage project during the fabrication process in order to successfully meet the project’s completion date.
“Our new name and our new look will change our downtown skyline forever. It will serve as a welcoming symbol for our growing cultural arts district and help us celebrate the arts in our wonderful community,” said Judith Lisi, president and CEO of the Straz Center.
Other organizations included in the cultural arts district are the Glazers Children’s Museum, Tampa Museum of Art and Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. Creative Sign Designs provided the custom business signs for all of these as well. The addition of the Straz Center's LED channel letters completes the District.
