Yogurty’s Froyo – Signage – 2012
Located on Bloor a block east of Bathurst, this sign was hand painted on the side of the Yogurty’s FroYo building.
527 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON
Froyo was opening up a new location on Bloor near Bathurst. This is just north of the large high school “Central technical school”. The froyo team was smart to have something hand painted on the side of their building. The area is considered a cultural hotspot for the latest trends. The wall faces the westbound traffic on Bloor, a great wall for something fun and colorful. This area also has plenty of young kids and teenagers around from the high school nearby plus the hipsters tend to gravitate to this neighborhood. The area can be a hotbed of foot traffic from old to young.
The design was very colorful, this will grab your attention if you’re driving or walking by. There is a cherry in the middle of the first O in Froyo, this cherry is painted in a realistic manner and is complementary to the graphic nature of the rest of the sign. Parts of the letters are transparent and appear to be overlapping some letters. With a drop shadow on a few choice spheres, this sign pops off the wall.
We projected the image with a digital projector. This was tricky because the alleyway was not that wide and our projector screen throw distance could not project the whole image at once. So we had to project the image in three to four different stages and being on a scissor lift added to the challenge. To do all the different projections we measure out the wall and make the projection the same size as the section of the wall we were trying to project onto.
To paint the main letters we used paint brush and painted it in freehand. For some of the transparent areas we used a glaze medium.
