This financial industry client had recently undergone a name change to Venture Bank. Bank design objectives included unifying branding between their retail bank facilities—a new exterior bank design and signage to represent stability and trust and new interior spaces to show commitment to quality and community and to promote a full portfolio of banking and financial services.
Design & Planning
I-5's challenge included creating exterior facades and signage that worked at each unique Venture Bank location. In the highly competitive banking market, the bank design had to rise above the rest, yet fit in with Venture's new corporate identity.
A distinctive, complementary interior signage design included full-color wall murals and illuminated pedestal s which gave customers information about services available or separated different services within the bank. New illuminated logos immediately identified the bank. These were mounted on newly constructed entryways. Building facades were upgraded, including architectural metal awnings.
Build & Install
Thanks to I-5's "concept to completion" in-house resources, all design, production, and implementation were handled by I-5 teams. This streamlined, one-source process ensured minimal interruption to operations.
For one of Venture Bank’s more problematic sites, I-5 Design created an interior and exterior plan that achieved overall bank design and branding goals without having to raze the existing building and rebuild a new one. Working with retail bank branding specifications, I-5 manufactured durable architectural signage, façade structures, large custom wall murals, and other decor elements at our in-house manufacturing facility, minimizing on-site construction. Site installation was reduced to just one day, creating minimal impact on business.
“The I-5 Design and Manufacturing staff have not only exceeded our customer service expectation, they continue to find solutions to every little challenge presented to them. Each encounter with an I-5 staff member has been professional, friendly, courteous, and solution based. Absolutely top notch.”
