Our homeowners association is working to update the landscaping and aesthetic of the main entrance to our housing development, which also includes updating the 'signage'. This is an upscale development called 'The Retreat' and consists of large lots and executive homes.
The existing signage, while 'elegant', is dated. As a component of the larger master plan, we are looking to update and slightly modernize the signage at the main entrance, while maintaining the 'upscale' feel. Additionally, it is important that the 'new' design be complimentary to the street signs within the complex (which will not be replaced). As such, we need to maintain some level of 'continuity' with the existing 'theme' throughout the complex (for example, perhaps using a similar or complimentary font).
We think the design element has two distinct components…lettering “The Retreat” with a corresponding ‘medallion’ or ‘button’ (with the tree in the circle). Copy of the ‘original’ medallion will be included with the photos. Ideally, we would like to better tie-together the script-font with the medallion as today, they don't tie-together very well.
Photos are provided to better communicate the existing font / colors that are used on the street signs and the existing lettering and medallion. The winning design will ultimately be provided to a sign manufacture and incorporated into the landscape design. Thank you for your interest in the project!
