Key Signs and Graphics to Help Rebrand a Community

by Christina Krenek

Tysons, a business district centrally located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, rebranded with a new name, logo and message to help define the area and drive economic development in the community. Tysons Partnership, a local non-profit association representing local business, civic and government leaders, needed to communicate the new branding across the area and increase location findability.  FASTSIGNS® helped the business district rebrand using a variety of unique signs and graphics.

Working closely with Tysons Partnership, FASTSIGNS developed colorful, modern signage to show off the community's new logo. Monument and site signs were installed at various highly visible locations for entering and exiting the city.

Fabric banners were added to fences and construction sites to promote the Tysons Partnership organization and local events around town. Dimensional logo signs were placed on top of the fences and throughout the community.

To help guide pedestrians and visitors where they need to go, FASTSIGNS provided four-sided wayfinding signs that were placed outside subway entrances. The map signs included the brand's eye-catching colors and graphic elements.

Custom lettering for the water tower makes an impact and further extends their branding in a big way, and small tabletop signs were given to the Tysons Partnership Board of Directors and members of the association to commemorate the experience.

People can now identify the Tysons district, visitors are welcomed with sleek signage and the business community is growing. FASTSIGNS continues to provide new signs and visual graphics as needed.
