Exterior Retail Shop Sign Package at night

This exterior sign package was designed for an historic building built in 1911 in downtown Orlando FL. It consists of one large Blade Sign mounted to the corner of the building, so it can be seen from both streets. One Illuminated Sign Cabinet with the new Walgreen’s Logo above the main entrance, and three sets of Channel Letters above the windows.

The design work was assigned to Visual Sign Design by White Sign Company. VSD designed the signs to scale worked out the materials and supplied WSC with the proofs for approval by IBC International Building Consultants and Engineering. VSD sent all the files to scale to WSC for production.

Large Exterior Blade Sign

The design concept for the Blade Sign was originally designed by Process Architecture LLC. Who was designing the new upgrades to the building for Walgreens.  As you can see the new blade sign was inspired by the old blade sign done for the First National Bank in 1934.

There were lots of challenges that came with this project and there were a lot of hands involved. Shout out to IBC for their mounting concept and hard work. Not even hurricane Irma can bring that sign down.

White Sign Company did a great job building and installing the signs. They are pleasure to work with.

Exterior Blade Sign Construction

History of the Building:

Founded in 1911, The People’s national Bank became the First National Bank in 1920. During the Depression, the bank planned a new building, designed by Orlando architect Howard M. Reynolds.

Exterior Historic Blade SignThe First National Bank and Trust Company failed in the early 1930’s and was reorganized in 1934 as the First National Bank at Orlando. In 1973, the bank merged with other Orlando banks to become Sun Banks, with this branch called Sun First National Bank at Orlando. Most recently, Valencia College had offices and classrooms here until 2014.
