NOTlabs: Dumbrella SDCC 2012 Signage- 07.12.12

dumbrella0.jpg LASERS!!! On looking for excuses to play with our new laser cutter ~ NOTlabs just created some signage for our friends at Dumbrella for San Diego Comic Con 2012! After a few experiments, we decided to go with laser cutting wood and acrylic ~ and having sanded clear acrylic with inlayed wood letters suspended from a clean black pipe structure. On the next page you can see how the process unfolded, and how fun watching the laser cutter in action is!

Here’s the final signage with the preview night crowd around it… sign1.jpg

Testing the letters out all connected on pvc pipe on rope… dumbrella7.jpg

… the back… dumbrella8.jpg

We tried stringing up the rope/PVC/letter combo, but it didn’t stay nearly as straight as we wanted. dumbrella9a.jpg

So back to the full pipe plan! dumbrella8a.jpg

Drove it all down to SD and we popped it up in the booth! dumbrella11.jpg
