StarTribune looks to the future as it moves into a new contemporary office building in downtown Minneapolis. After 95 years at its previous location, the media company is updating its image and selected Nordquist Sign to help with their branding.

Robb Walker, CEO of Nordquist Sign, said, “To assist our clients in all aspects of their signage needs, we create long term strategic partnerships to help them define, strengthen and grow their brands. Working with the StarTribune as they updated their image was an exciting opportunity for Nordquist Sign.”

Nordquist Sign fabricated and installed the entry sign facing Third Avenue. The manufacturing expertise of the Nordquist team involved implementing a design and installing the sign to the two existing structural entry columns. The projecting sign was constructed with a horizontal aluminum support system and the letters are custom manufactured from stainless steel and house a low voltage LED lighting systems. The new Star Tribune logo is a translucent custom printed graphic.

“When the Star Tribune had a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring its brand to life at the new Star Tribune Building, we turned to Nordquist. As they have many times over the years, they managed the project with attention to detail and delivered a top-notch finished product. The proof is in the countless compliments we receive from visitors and neighbors, and the pride our employees feel,” said Steve Yaeger, Chief Marketing Officer and Kevin Desmond, Senior Vice President Operations.
