Custom Logos

Any Color

Weather you're upgrading your existing logo or starting from scratch, lettradeshowoffs! help you find the way to a unique and memorable logo design. The tradeshowoffs! logo design for this service shop had an updated color palette - colors can always change. B & W was chosen for the interior wall & an etched effect was chosen for the store front. The band of services at the lower part of the store front glass was backed by a color from the owners color palette that is also on the back wall.

Custom Prop Design

Acrylics

The Leasing Manager thought a service based shop could benefit from a jazzy, kooky kind of back wall prop. tradeshowoffs!designed a prop utilizing jewelry counter hands - which were originally intended to have watches & rings on them - and had custom crafted acrylic panels manufactured to mount the hands on for a unique & colorful prop installation.

Off Site Events

Not every off site event requires armed guards as did this Cartier watch event at Chicago's Mid America Club in 2010. But off site events do require other strategic planning activities. Transportation, travel friendly backdrops, lighting, signage and coordination with the event promoter are just a few that need special attention. Let tradeshowoffs! take care of these logistics so that you can concentrate on making any event a success.



Freshen Up Your Trade Show Booth

Color

Under the category of "no job is too small" - here is a perfect example of what a few simple things a company can do to freshen up a trade show booth - or a store for that matter. With the "before" pic you see a 10' x 20" inline booth. Not awful, but the owner wanted to make it more attractive visually. With the "after" pic, see what a different color palette and a few new fixtures can do to give the booth a fresh look.


Practical Design Solutions
