Wait, Azimu-what?? Read  on to satisfy your curiosity about the new building with an awesome red entry on Bend's westside. M.C. Smith Signs partnered with Pacific Crest Affordable Housing to design a striking free-standing monument sign that blends perfectly with the contemporary architecture of the structure and highlights the building colors and design. Residents love living in this new complex within walking distance of lovely shops and delicious restaurants in Northwest Crossing. Inside the building, designers took care to add uniques details such as energy-efficient design, exercise room, and bike room.


Esthetically, on the outside, the “Azimuth 315” nameplate features .250” brushed aluminum raised letters. The core structure of this freestanding sign is metal powder coated in PPG “crushed tomatoes” to match the building's main lobby entrance. Address and logo graphics are thoughtfully applied with V1 high-performance vinyl.


The combination of materials and design elements results in a simple but striking contemporary sign that stands out on its own while pulling together the entire development. Our graphic design experts pride themselves in partnering with local businesses to bring your visions from concepts to reality.
