Buffalo Sabres Architectural Signage Wins Best Overall Award
The winner of Best Overall architectural signage project for 2011 from ASI is the Buffalo Sabres recognition and team history wall. ASI, Buffalo worked closely with the Buffalo Sabres and Cannon Design to establish the environmental graphics for the new state of the art locker room facility at the First Niagara Center.
The project was fast tracked to be completed in less than two months, from the start of the production artwork to the final installation in order to be ready for when the Buffalo Sabres returned from a European Exhibition tour.
