Custom Acrylic Display for Citizen Watch Showcase
The display was made with multiple pieces of Printed Acrylic to form a base and stand that fit neatly inside the showcase, behind the products. The end result was stunning. A perfect showcase signage solution for a custom retail environment.
We sat down with Lacey Hensen, our lead designer, to discuss the process of creating this custom acrylic display and the challenges it presented.
Rachel McCoy: How did you decide on the application for this project? Was this acrylic requested specifically by Citizen, or was this a collaborated idea brought on by you?
Lacey Hensen: Everything was requested by Citizen, except the Acrylic and Plexi Glass display case. The material was recommended by myself, based on past experiences. I worked together with Gabriel Guerrero, our custom fabricator, to engineer a way to get the Printed Acrylic to stand up straight in the case. We decided to route a channel into the Acrylic base, to insert the vertical piece. This took some trial and error to get the perfect fit!
Rachel McCoy: Did you encounter any problems with the artwork that was sent by the client for this display?
Lacey Hensen: When the graphic elements were provided I needed to scale them to fit the desired space. Originally, Citizen wanted the breaks between the Air, Land and Sea images to be on a diagonal for both the window and the display case. Therefore, there were multiple design concepts proposed before finalizing the end product.
