Building a Modern and Cohesive Visual Environment for a Credit Union’s Relocation

by Larissa Croll

The Opportunity

After several decades as a fixture in the community, Columbine Federal Credit Union moved to a new standalone building and needed many new signs and graphics.


The Challenge

Columbine Federal Credit Union needed to communicate the relocation to current and prospective clients and wanted to help customers navigate the new, larger facility once their doors were open. The credit union contacted FASTSIGNS® of Englewood – Littleton for help creating visual communications that reflected their brand.

The Solution

ATM signThe project began simply with a banner at the construction site to announce the future home of Columbine Federal Credit Union. Matt Reber, the Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, requested a lobby sign to complement the updated, sleek design of their new location.

FASTSIGNS’ Matt Metcalf said, “We delivered a beautiful solution to meet the credit union’s needs,” explained FASTSIGNS’ Matt Metcalf.

FASTSIGNS created a metal logo panel on the wall above the teller line, becoming a welcome beacon in the credit union’s new building.

After the new lobby logo was installed, the team at FASTSIGNS consulted with Reber on designing and creating various signs including logos for the doors, parking lot and drive-up ATM signs, informational signs for teller lines, decals for the teller windows and frosted window graphics that provide privacy.

FASTSIGNS provided a custom directional sign in the parking lot to guide customers to visitor parking spots and the drive-up ATM lane. The frame of this sign matched the façade of the building and tied the visual theme together.

The Result

The comprehensive sign and graphics solution helped Columbine Federal Credit Union extend a modern look to every part of their new facility.
