Color Lab Project : Furman University

[fa icon="calendar'] May 23, 2018 / by TPM Admin posted in Color Lab

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The first thing I notice when I walk through the doors of any new place is the interior decor. Being from Greenville and growing up in a Furman family, I have been visiting the University for my entire life. When the new stadium was being built and renovations were taking place I was excited to see what was in store. As you can see, Furman's branding is on point and TPM's Color Lab did some really cool stuff to make everything stand out!

The FeatureManager design tree on the left side of the SOLIDWORKS window provides an outline view of the active part, assembly, or drawing.

The FeatureManager design tree uses the following conventions:

Making it Pop with The Color Lab!

[fa icon="calendar'] May 02, 2018 / by TPM Admin posted in Color Lab

I recently came across a study titled, "Impact of Color on Marketing," where I learned how much of an influence color can have on people's moods and feelings as well as how it can contribute to differentiating products from it's competitors. This study also found that up to 62-90% of judgments made about products can be based on color alone. Color is a very important element when it comes to creating your brand identity, and predicting consumer reaction to color is more important than the color itself. 

Personally, I've always been a huge fan of color, and I agree 100% that it can affect someones mood. After taking a walk through The Color Lab this week, I noticed that there were lots of vibrant color coming through on everything from vehicle wraps, blvd banners, interior lettering and the list goes one. There is no better way to stand out than with bright and colorful graphics. I don't say this often, but take my advice this time and be sure to make your branding pop! No matter your application, The Color Lab has got you covered!

Be sure to check out last week's post where we share a fun project that we had the opportunity to work on with Young Office Supply!

Color Lab Project : Young Office

The Plans

When you walk through the doors of Young Office you can't  help but ask for a tour of the whole building. With the inviting feel and modern look,  you never know what is around the next corner.  The layout and design are unlike any office I have seen before, so I was excited to see what project The Color Lab was about to take on with Young Office. I got there early so I was able to get some "before" pictures and see what the plans were for the project.

Understanding Autodesk’s New Packaging Changes to BIM 360

Recently Autodesk announced changes to the packaging for BIM 360, their AEC project delivery and construction management platform. BIM 360 supports informed decision-making throughout the project lifecycle, helping lead to more predictable and profitable outcomes.

Beginning on April 9, the BIM 360 platform will be sold in four product offerings: BIM 360 Docs, BIM 360 Design, BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Build. In addition, Collaboration for Revit is being repackaged as part of the BIM 360 family to allow for better integration and management capabilities.

While we are changing the product packaging, BIM 360 subscribers will be able to continue to use the products they use today. The new packaging provides BIM 360 subscribers with added capabilities, including the ability manage all project information through a common data platform and access to the next-generation BIM 360 platform modules. Access varies by product subscription and is detailed below.

Experience Clemson Project with The Color Lab

[fa icon="calendar'] April 11, 2018 / by TPM Admin posted in Color Lab

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

If you saw last week's post then you now know the perfect place to get all of your Trade Show needs! This week we are going to share with you a fun project that we recently worked on with Experience Clemson located at ONE on Main Street. We decided that the perfect fit for the atmosphere where people gather to experience a glimpse into the excitement that comes from being a part of Clemson would be the SEG Fabric Frames to make a statement and show off the brand. 

If you aren't familiar, SEG stands for Silicone Edge Graphic, which is a high resolution, dye sublimated fabric graphic finished with a thin silicone strip which is inserted into our aluminum frames. These can be used on pop up displays, pull-ups, Charisma Frames and more! A benefit to using dye sublimated fabrics is that it's wrinkle resistant and can also be washed and dry cleaned so you can maintain a new appearance. There are so many options that we offer here at The Color Lab from Wallmount to Floor stand or Backlit, contact us for details so we can help you find the perfect fit for your space! 

Be sure to pop in to Experience Clemson to see our work and to experience running down the hill with the football team, hear the stories of students, alumni and faculty, and discover the history behind some of Clemson’s greatest traditions.
