Employees at Farmers State Bank (FSB) in Iowa are proud of the connections they have with their local communities. They volunteer countless hours to help make the cities they serve great places to work, live, and play. To help show this connection, we were hired by a national design firm, NewGround, to fabricate and install a beautiful branded environment in the bank’s newest branch in Des Moines, IA. Let’s take a look at the signage elements that were installed for this project!
This wall mural is sure to get noticed by guests as they wait in the lobby or pour themselves coffee. Now that's smart branding!
Vinyl Wall Mural
We printed and installed a laminated vinyl wall mural (pictured above) with the words “Grounded in community since 1879” in the branch’s lobby. The artwork for this mural incorporated overlapping hexagon shapes in FSB’s brand colors. The most unique part of this mural was the black and white dimensional photos. They were adhered to the wall with velcro to allow them to be easily interchanged as needed. The photos contain images of employees giving back to their communities in various ways.
This window graphic also serves as the logo sign as you enter the branch.
This particular branch contains a vestibule which visitors have to walk through before entering the main lobby. As shown in the photo above, we applied a large window graphic, which contains the bank’s logo, to the glass in the vestibule. The letters “fsb” and the tractor shape were cut from two different colors of window vinyl and then applied on the front surface of the glass.
This is a great entryway! The bold green colors and window graphics work well with the electrical sign above the front door.
In addition to the vestibule graphic, which you can see from the outside of the branch in the photo above, we also installed window graphics on the exterior window surfaces. These included the green vinyl along the top of the glass windows and more hexagon shapes with welcoming messages.
Silicone Edge Graphics
SEG displays like these are becoming more popular in bank settings.
Silicone edge graphic displays (SEGs) were installed in the lobby at the receptionist’s desk and also on office walls. These fabric displays were printed on tensioned fabric and pulled tight within their frames to create an elegant look. They’re also designed to be easily interchangeable as needed.
Frosted privacy vinyl looks great on these glass windows and doors!
This particular branch has a lot of glass doors and windows. To create privacy and decoration, we installed window film (also called frosted vinyl) along the bottom of the office windows and glass doors. We also cut bands of colored vinyl (in FSB’s brand colors) to adhere to the top of the glass.
As you can see, NewGround did an excellent job designing a welcoming branded environment for Farmers State Bank. As the bank expands and refreshes its locations, more branches will receive similar signage elements.
