During my time at Signs Etc, I have been involved in design and creating artworks afor signage for local businesses, design firms and builders. Advanced Shade Systems (2018-2019), I designed various types of shade sails and structures. One of them was a custom cantilever shade structure, for Brisbane City Council at Oriel Park.
LEARNING EXPERIENCES / CHALLENGES
Designing within the clients budget and within the design standards and limitations.
Creating technical drawings accurately for the parts of the structures to be manufactured.
Working on bid tenders
My role at Signs Etc, was to design and create artwork for signage and forin-house manufacture. Most of our clients are local buisnesses, design firms and builders. Using would get wither a design specification of what the client wants and I will create 2-3 design options to be further developed and approved by the client. Depending on the scenario would normally do a site visit and measure the area or vehicle/object. and note down any obstacles for when installing the structures. The designs are created in CorelDraw and approved by the client.
Once the design is confirmed and approved by the client, the signage design is either engineered if it is a large structure and technical drawings are created for manufacture. Once the drawings are approved, manufacturing in our workshop, then installed on site once manufacturing is completed.
I have also been involved in the companies marketing and bid tenders. Social media links are below:
