These panel display systems were fabricated to promote the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The installations could be found at airports in Chicago, Philadelphia, Tampa and Dallas. The systems consisted of a low profile stage floor with ramps and banner boards that were held upright by the flooring.
The front of the boards had a front view of the CTS-V Coupe that was broken up among the panels and printed at various sizes.
When the panels are viewed at the correct spot, the images on the panels line up to form the complete image.
The banner boards had information highlighting various aspects of the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe on the back.
Each panel was approximately 30 x 72 x 3 inches. The public could freely walk around the panels to read the information.
This is a hand crafted weathered sign produced for Gander Mountain. We started out with old weathered barn wood. Spliced the planks together and then hand weathered the boards even further through various methods such as, bead blasting, wire brush and a few oddly modified power tools.
The final touches to the weathered look was achieved with paint, various wash coats and some dry brush techniques. From the large ‘You’re’ to the little ‘Camp’ and everything in between, the artwork on the sign is all hand painted.
