First Century Bank is a local bank with a long history. Started in 1894, the bank has flourished in East Tennessee. One of the newest branches is in a newly remodeled building in Maryville. The site on West Broadway was the location for one of our recent projects. Working alongside the bank’s architect, we developed and designed signage for the doors and interior walls using the bank’s colors. Incorporating historic and local photos, we emphasized not only the bank’s long local history, but we also visually placed it in its home just outside of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. More
Knoxville’s PYA Analytics does work for the healthcare industry and has to comply with HIPAA standards. Part of their strategy for this involved obscuring the all-glass windows and doors found throughout their office space. We were tasked with creating graphics that were functional and beautiful. One of our designers, created a geometric pattern of multi-colored squares, hinting at graphs, charts and data. The art was printed on frosted vinyl and applied on all the glass surfaces that line the halls, continuing upstairs to their loft space.
Last week marked the grand opening of the Health Information Center at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Part of the mission of this library is “…providing patients, family members and the community with valuable information on the latest health news and free research for specific diseases or illnesses.” Working with Heather King, interior designer, we developed and designed several complex display graphics that utilized dimensional lettering, acrylic panels and exotic woods.

Here at High Resolutions, we do quite a bit of work for some local churches as well as churches across the country that find us on the web. One of the local churches that we work with often is First Baptist Church Concord. Here are just two recent projects that we helped them accomplish. More
Local florist, The Flower Pot, came to us last year wanting a refreshed image for their brand. They asked us to design a logo and begin producing graphics for their storefronts with the new design and color scheme. After giving them a logo that they loved, we began designing a variety of signage and vinyl for their doors, windows, and walls. More
One of our regular customers added a new vehicle to their campus security force and needed graphics that would officially integrate it into their fleet. We had previously designed the graphics for their fleet, so it was a simple process to bring up the old files, print, and install. We used reflective vinyl on most of the vinyl to give the vehicle high visibility especially at night. You can see the effect that it gives in the images where we used a flash to simulate headlights striking the graphics. Reflective vinyl is especially suitable for vehicles that need high visibility such as construction vehicles, tow trucks, or emergency response vehicles. Brightly colored, reflective vinyl can grab drivers’ attention. This is especially important as a safety feature for jobs that require vehicles to be used at night.
Last week, we completed what was one of the larger and more complex vehicle wraps that we’ve done. Waste Management asked us to design and install this grand-scale wrap on one of their Knoxville-area recycle trucks. The large, bold side graphics are eye-catching with a huge vista of part of the Knoxville skyline. The cab continues the imagery around the front of the truck. You may think that the huge panels on the side of the hopper were the hard part, but those curvaceous fenders provided the biggest challenge.
We measured, re-measured, and measured again to determine exactly how much image needed to be printed. With a lot of planning, and some very skilled installers, we were able to use three separate, overlapping panels to make a continuous image over the entire cab.
Over the summer, Clayton Homes approached High Res about designing, producing and installing a wall mural for a main thoroughfare in their home office. Almost all visitors and clients that visit the corporate headquarters in Maryville, Tennessee make their way through this hallway at some point during their visit. Clayton recognized the prime visual real estate they had available to them to educate their visitors on how the company has thrived over the years. This month, we put the finishing touches on the project. Read on to see how what began as an almost blank wall became a showpiece for the company. More
