We were commissioned to produce the 3D elephant, lettering and decorative graphics for a new primary identification sign at the entrance to Elephant Yard designed by The Knack Design Consultants.
After deciding on the design for the elephant the next stage was to turn it into a working 3D model to be sculpted from ‘Sign Rock’ on our flat bed router. After the elephant form was created the parts were sprayed in gold paint and mounted on steel back-plates ready for installation.
Other elements included flat cut, acrylic lettering and a printed history of Kendal which made up the bottom section of the totem.
The feedback towards the sign has so far been very positive and it was a very interesting project to work on combining many different techniques in sign making.
