Featured Project: Mexican Restaurant Turns Heads with Outdoor Wall Graphic

U.K.-based ICO looked to Turner Signs to design and install a Mexican-inspired wall graphic

U.K.-based Mexican restaurant ICO recently opened its doors at a unique location in the city of Wakefield in England, with the restaurant being based underground in a former bank vault.

Having worked with Turner Signs on several print and signage projects for its other restaurants, ICO once again approached the Barnsley-based family-run sign maker to help raise awareness of its new location and promote its food to the people of Wakefield.

ICO tasked Turner Signs with filling an unusual brick wall space with its Mexican-inspired artwork but with the additional challenge for the installation to have an authentic Mexican style.

According to the sign shop, it first considered printed aluminum composite board for the job, but after seeing Drytac Polar Street FX on the Drytac Instagram page, it quickly became clear that the Drytac media would be a better fit for the appearance that ICO desired.

The shop used its Mimaki CJV150 to print the unique design onto Drytac Polar Street FX, supplied by Signmaster Systems, before applying the graphic to the wall space.

“The customer was absolutely blown away with the final result,” remarks Turner Signs Director Curt Turner. “We have been working with Drytac media for about four years and know how flexible their products are for jobs like this.”

Turner Signs offers a variety of different illuminated and non-illuminated signs, as well as wall art, banners, window graphics, and vehicle wraps.
