Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta have been helping children and teenagers for over 75 years. Starting with just one club on Washington Street in 1938, they now have over 30 Clubs in the Metro Atlanta area. The club has been helping thousands of children and teenagers each day to reach their full potential through academic success, healthy lifestyles, character development and leadership programs.
Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta partnered with INNERFACE Architectural Signage to design and implement new interior, exterior custom signage and wayfinding elements for their new and existing facilities. The new signage and wayfinding design was driven to create a friendly and welcoming environment that reflects their brand and mission.
The design and function was needed to work with children and teens for a dynamic learning environment in each classroom. Therefore, we designed and built a modular system to showcase their artwork.
For this application, we used a magnetic rail combined multiple frame sizes that can be arranged as needed. It can change quickly based on the day of the week or relevant activity.
For each classroom, we designed the frame and rail system with paper grips. This provided additional display opportunities and reduced the number of items taped to the walls. Other custom items included large format graphics, to further enhance the interior spaces and support their brand.
The new exterior signage was needed to welcome parents and kids, clearly identify and convey basic information related to the specific club’s operating hours. Each facility will have slightly different applications based on zoning and permitting limitations. We designed and built a consistent design that is correctly scaled and branded. Other design variations include internally illuminated and ground lit signage.
Our design and project management team will work closely with each Metro Atlanta location to research signage codes and ensure the best application of the new exterior design. From initial design discussion through permitting, fabrication and installation, our Design+Build approach makes projects easy to manage and guarantees success.
Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, will continue to expand with both new and renovated locations. We look forward to creating a long term partnership that will help them develop and maintain their environments. that are innovative, cost effective and best support their mission of academic success, healthy lifestyles, character development and leadership.
