Schoolhouse Children’s Museum Unveils Makeover Received from FASTSIGNS® MetamorphoSIGN Contest
(BOYTON BEACH, Fla.) July 2, 2012 - Recently, the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center in Boynton Beach, Fla. unveiled the makeover that it received as a result of winning FASTSIGNS® MetamorphoSIGN Makeover Contest last summer.
The museum’s new look was revealed during a ceremony with more than 40 people in attendance. Included on the list of attendees was the Mayor, several commissioners, executives of corporations that had contributed to the museum, members of the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum’s board of directors, dignitaries and city officials.
“The FASTSIGNS of Lake Worth team was very patient, accommodating and understanding as we went through the entire process, particularly the center’s owner, Ken Baxter, who was working with both us and the City of Boynton Beach to move the project along. We’ve received numerous compliments about our new look from visitors and community members,” said Lindsey Nuzzo, Marketing and Development Coordinator for the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum.
The makeover included removing several palm trees that obstructed the view of the museum and relocating them elsewhere on the property. In the resulting hole, the FASTSIGNS of Lake Worth team installed a monument sign featuring the museum’s logo. Additionally, the team placed two new banner poles on either side of the museum’s entrance to provide a space to advertise programs and events. An audio visual display and a sign with changeable space inside the museum were installed to deliver a variety of messages. Finally, posters were hung in the museum’s higher windows to add color and visual interest without altering or damaging the exterior of the historic structure.
As a result of the makeover, the museum has enhanced its marketing and communications efforts by having consistently branded signage on the exterior of the building. Additionally, the museum reported seeing 40% more visitors during the makeover year as compared to the previous year, and a 127% increase in general operations compared to the same time the prior year (due to the combination of new educational programming, stronger marketing and rebranding efforts, and stronger visual communications via the new signage.)
“FASTSIGNS is very excited to have had the opportunity to be involved with this unique and positive organization and to have an impact on it, as well as on the city of Boynton Beach,” commented Baxter. “We’re glad that we were able to provide this historic community landmark with the right combination of signs and graphics to not only engage and draw in more visitors but also to ignite added support to help develop the rest of Ocean Avenue as a main downtown corridor.”
