Project Spotlight:

Ben & Jerry’s came to Light-Works requiring a new menu board system for all its North American scoop shops.  For years, they had been using a backlit system with magnetic flavor strips and wanted a completely new look to match their new store design and a more effective method to display their brand and swap out the content.  They needed us to turn the concept into something that would be cost effect to produce, ship, and change out content.  The materials needed to be authentic, made in Vermont, and of course using sustainable material wherever possible.  We suggested using Visual Magnetics to use recyclable material instead of PVC and to save significantly on shipping weight.  The frames would be made from local pine; stained, finished, cut and assembled under our care.  The hanging system, to resemble sliding barn doors would be fabricated locally as well.  It all had to be UPS shippable, and demonstrate cost saving over the legacy system, particularly for content change outs.  Light-Works produced the complete five panel system and shipped them system wide to their scoop shops.
