MIPS technologies was recently acquired by Imagination technologies in Santa Clara. So the exterior signs had to be changed from Imagination to MIPS.
The main monument sign is a double sided sign with raised letters. The letters were screwed to to the aluminum panel. Removing the old logo would have left holes on the sign. The holes can be repaired on a concrete or stucco sign but not on metal surface. To avoid replacing the complete sign, we suggested covering the sign face with new aluminum face and adding the new logo to it. The customer liked the idea as it was a big cost saving - instead of replacing the big monument sign we were able to refurbish the face and add the new logo.
Here are some photos from the project:
