    When you really love your work and you’re good at what you do, a challenge is nothing but a chance to show off your capabilities. At GraphicWorks, we love a good challenge. There’s nothing better than going beyond a client’s expectations, especially for a particularly tough job. Recently, we worked with Peak Expeditionary, a Pre-K to 5th-grade school in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Peak was founded on the principle that learning should be challenging, meaningful, and adventurous. Their awesome focus on their students and the way they push those students to really learn inspired us and motivated us to really sink our teeth into this project.

    The Challenge

    We always do our best possible work, but this project required just a little extra push from our team. Peak came to us with an aggressive timeline. They needed four exterior signs, the first of which needed to be installed and ready for the school’s opening day. This meant we had to really get things moving as quickly as we could fabricating the signs so we could get this installation completed to meet the client’s needs. So, we wasted no time getting this project started, but were sure to deliver the same quality work we always do.

    The Signs

    The four signs that Peak needed represented the school and the tenants it is built on. The signs were made of aluminum composite and shaped into peaks. The first sign needed was an aluminum triangle with the name and logo of the school, which was mounted above the school’s main entrance. We got to work on this sign first. Through hard work and diligence, we managed to get this sign fabricated and installed before the opening day. The other three signs were made to look like the mountain peak on the school’s logo and included the three principles of the school’s teaching: challenging, meaningful, adventurous. We installed the other three signs shortly after the opening day.
