Before & After: Victoria Point

Here's a few images of old and new signs from Brisbane's Victoria Point State School, one of our recent projects:

Before: The original entrance to the school


After: New handcrafted signage gives the entrance a fresh look.

Before: The changeable message-board sign

After: Danthonia's LED message centre

Before: The flat metal 'arch sign'

After: Danthonia's three-dimensional, sculpted & gilded version

The school's crest was hand-sculpted and artist-painted on all of the new signs.

 'We are very happy with our four new signs. I am still amazed that the entire project was accomplished all via phone and email.'

- Sue Vink, Business Services Manager, Victoria Point State School
