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
This week, we designed a partial wall-covering for Shoreline Church of Knoxville. This corner mural took some engineering to make sure the artwork overlapped, but didn’t look strange where the tree’s roots met. One of our employees, who attends Shoreline, installed it last night with ease using one of our user-friendly, repositionable, wall mural materials. More
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
Last year, High Resolutions was privileged to be chosen to help design and create large graphics for a bedroom in the Extreme Home Makeover in Knoxville. A production designer from the crew brought us sketches that were to become huge graphics for ceiling suspension, wall murals, and fabric drapes. Read on to hear about how we turned tiny sketches into huge graphics and to see photos of the final installation. More
This project wasn’t a small one. Neither was it huge. However, it certainly was on a tight timeline. We were challenged to meet, setup, produce, and begin installation of these graphics within a three day period. One of the major concerns voiced, was that of quality. Could we pull this job off in time, without a sacrifice in print quality? What was our response? Well, it’s in our name. We produce high resolution graphics at High Resolutions.
So, the job began with a meeting. We met with Tombras on a Wednesday. Began work that afternoon. Tombras made this project a breeze, really. We worked hand-in-hand, manipulating the art so it would work on these multi-dimensional surfaces. It takes real professionals to make things happen in these circumstances.
Thursday morning we began finalizing the art. Sizing and positioning the text elements, so nothing would be lost. By Thursday mid-day, we were in full production mode.
By Friday, we were finishing the graphics, and preparing them for installation. We began installation that evening, and finished up on Saturday.
Thanks to the efforts of all involved, the wall-coverings went up without a hitch.
