Custom Signwriting roll out Hickory’s Smokehouse design every eight weeks to meet massive expansion
Every eight weeks, Custom Signwriting undertakes a rapid rollout for Hickory’s Smokehouse as part of the restaurant’s extensive expansion. Formerly a biannual occurrence, these rollouts now transpire at a significantly increased frequency. Custom Signwriting, tasked with this challenge, conducts site surveys due to discrepancies in architectural dimensions. Amidst the rough-sawed timber exteriors, with a 30mm deep stepping between planks, they must adapt to unpredictable weather conditions and tight timeframes. Focused on external visuals, the artwork spans from 1 to over 8 metres, demanding precision in scale and execution. Despite the difficulties posed by the irregular timber surfaces, the majority of the work is skillfully accomplished by eye to ensure standout aesthetics for Hickory’s Smokehouse.
