The Milwaukee County Zoo holds a special place in our community. Founded in 1892, it enjoys a rich history of inspiring “public understanding, support and participation in global conservation of animal species and their environment.” So not just any old sign would live up to that.

new lighted monument sign installed at Milwaukee County Zoo

That’s why we built and installed a double-faced 12’ lighted monument sign with electronic message center (EMC) to mark their location west of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The combination of backlit letters and face lit letters gives the sign a special visual appeal.

PARTNERS – We’d like to give a shout out to JCP Construction, Adaptive Displays and, of course, the Milwaukee County Zoo. This project is an example of how collaborative partnerships produce excellent results!

GREAT MATCH – One of our top priorities was to match the existing signage at the zoo’s main gate in order to maintain their brand image. We performed a technical survey and soil survey. Our designers and fabricators nailed the color, size, and materials. The end result is a remarkable consistency between each lighted monument sign.

HIGH VISIBILITY EMC – The EMC from Adaptive Displays that we built into the zoo’s new sign delivers high-level visibility, leveraging the zoo’s prime location on two busy streets. The unit is temperature and climate tested to withstand the harshest treatment mother nature can dish out. The EMC is UL Energy Verified so it consumes less energy and decreases overall operating expenses. It’s also UL-Listed, which means it exceeds rigorous safety standards for design and manufacturing. Best of all, it delivers customized messages to the zoo’s target audience!

UNSURPASSED VALUE – Our sign experts helped the client understand the complete value they received by working with our team. To learn more about how you can benefit from a great-looking sign like this, contact Don Nummerdor, Account Manager.
