Kiriba is the name of the cutting edge of the Sashimi knife in Japan. The customer stressed the importance of the knife in his business and logo. What better way to win a customer than to make that importance stand out in the design of the sign. We were able to achieve this by designing the knife to stand off the face of the sign and make it large enough to break the boundaries of the sign cabinet. To add to the dynamics of this sign it was designed to have the fish element also break the boundaries of the sign as well. Exposed neon and subtle halo lighting makes this sign really stand out. Our fantastic salesperson, Carole Alexander, wanted to reduce costs by refurbished the existing aluminum cabinet with new paint and electrical. The faces are aluminum with sections routed out and backed with acrylic. The faces were painted with vinyl details. The fish and knife are also painted aluminum with vinyl details, stood off the faces for depth. The main issue with this design was getting all the pieces to fit and work together to create the finished result. This was accomplished through the hard work of Gerald Pearson, who did the layout on how pieces will fit together and routing of materials, as well as putting the final vinyl details on the sign. This sign shows how to take an existing basic rectangular cabinet and make it exciting. This was a vast improvement to what could have easily ended up being just another vinyled acrylic face in a rectangle.
