The competition was stiff, but Metro Sign & Awning won the job.

An environmental graphic design throughout an office building can transform the entire work space. Modern buildings today have to provide much more than simply a desk, computer and a cup of coffee. Incorporating environmental designs provides employees with inspiration, motivation, purpose and a way to relate to the company brand.
