Signage for Bad Daddy's Burger Bar in Broomfield, CO

26th of July 2017 |   BSC Signs

The Flatiron Crossing Project

Have you been to a Bad Daddy's Burger Bar? They recently opened a new location at the Flatiron Crossing mall in Broomfield, bringing their total to twelve Colorado locations. BSC designed and installed the signage, which included some interesting challenges.

Here's a photo of the finished project.

The shape of the building requires that any signage be visible to traffic approaching from two different directions. The main signage is provided by two electric channel letter signs that are mounted on the upper portion of the building. The channel letters were custom made by BSC Signs and are internally illuminated with LED modules. This style of sign does excellent double duty — it's clear and easily visible during the day, and at night it's bright and easily seen from a distance.

The LEDs make the sign energy efficient, and they evenly illuminate the translucent acrylic faces of each letter. The 3D letters are made from aluminum and are extremely durable and long lasting. 

If you look carefully at the backing panel that the 3D letters are attached to, you'll see that its made of wood. The design called for weathered, reclaimed wood, which gives it a very organic, natural look.

The other style of sign in the project is a bottlecap design. It represents the bottlecap from a glass beer  bottle. As you can see further down in this post, we previously made a bottlecap interior sign for another Bad Daddy's location. For this project we needed to value-engineer this sign to get a similar effect, without having a deeply sculpted design.

The finished sign has three layers, giving it a nice 3D look. There's the main bottlecap shape, then the Bad Daddy's cut-out letters which are individually placed on the corrugated metal backer. It makes for a very durable, pleasing design that is also cost efficient.

Working with city sign codes and Landlord Requirements

The signage for the Flatiron Crossing location went through some approval challenges. Back at the end of 2016 when the location was brand new, we weren't able to place the signs in the optimal position on the building. Due to the local design rules, the signs had to be installed quite low on the building. This constraint was experienced by other new tenants in the building as well. Eventually though, permission was given to re-install the signs in their current location, much higher up on the light colored part of the wall. It's a big improvement! 

It's a good reminder though that every sign project depends on approvals from two sources. First, it must meet the Sign Code requirements of the local government. We have a full-time sign code tech who expertly navigates our clients through the process. The second requirement is to get an approval from the owner or landlord. This all takes time, so if you have a business that will be occupying a new space and you'll need signage, we strongly recommend that you contact us early on, so we can start the approvals process rolling.

ARTWORK AND APPROVALS

Here's a revised conceptual drawing for the Flatiron Crossing sign project. We use artwork like this to communicate with our clients and get the required approvals from everyone involved in the project. Once the sign is approved, our designer creates a final shop drawing for our fabricators. A Project Manager is involved throughout the entire process, coordinating the different requirements of the project and making sure our clients are in the loop and updated.

Previous Projects For Bad Daddy's Burger Bar

We've been building signage for Bad Daddy's for a few years now. We really like this beautiful neon sign that's located next to the AMC movie theatre at the Southlands mall. It was quite a complicated sign to build but it turned out to be a beautiful piece of sign art — especially at night when the beautiful glowing neon can be seen!

Here's another project we did for Bad Daddy's. It's one of our favorite signs from the last few years! This 3D sign was the first bottlecap style sign we created, and was installed in 2016 at their new store in Littleton. It was sculpted out of layers of architectural foam, with the main "Bad Daddy's" name routed into a reclaimed wood panel. the "Burger Bar" letters were individually created on our CNC router, and then painted to provide the outline effect.
