This week I had the opportunity to help a new business with creating a storefront design. The client informed me that her business would be very similar to a nail salon but she also specializes in cosmetology. After receiving all of her contact information and hours of operation I began creating a horizontal layout that would best fit her business. I decided to find a clean and elegant looking font in order to attract her target audience and make her service look professional. I am much more comfortable with Illustrator but for this project I used Corel Draw to show my boss that I could learn and adapt to the applications we use at ImageWorks in order to make the printing process easier. I know that showing effort to adapt in any workplace is essential and it will pay off for future employment opportunities. After sending a proof of my design, the client really admired the fonts I chose. She told me she wanted something simple but she didn’t realize that the font itself could truly bring the image of her business to life. After the proof was approved, I drove to get the true measurements of her entrance and the store front window so that my design wouldn’t be too big or too small. I returned to the shop and imported the files into Flexi Sign to prep for the install. I planned on using white vinyl because the windows were kind of tinted and I knew it would make the design stand out. The next day I returned and centered the design by checking the measurements of both sides. I tapped down both sides and installed the vinyl as carefully as possible to avoid heat bubbles. It turned out really great!
