Covington Schools – Corridor Project…

With the construction of a new K-8 school building, Covington schools found itself in a dilemma in regards to preserving and displaying class composites from 1935 until the current date. What made this such a challenge is the fact that many of the old class composites had faded through time and some were in frames that were falling apart. Plus, there was no consistency established over the years as to the overall size of each class composite.

Color Green Creative solved these issues by digitally restoring each class composite – some of which have been drastically faded due to old printing methods not being able to last under the stresses of light. The restored digital files have also been posted online for alumni to download for personal use.

In regards to displaying the class composites, along with a complete history of Covington schools dating back to 1870, Color Green Creative strategically designed the graphics to fit within the entire corridor bridging the two schools together. The overall appearance maintains the Covington brand established through the school’s history – ultimately visually conveying the tradition and school pride shared by alumni and future Buccaneers.

Once the design was completed and all class composites were digitally restored, SpeedPro Imaging in Vandalia, Ohio printed the art and spearheaded the installation of the graphics. Graphics were displayed in layers to give the entire corridor depth from the existing lightening established during the construction of the corridor. The end result is a very captivating environment for former, current and future Buccaneers to enjoy for decades to come.

Below is a gallery of images from the completed project.

Covington Gymnasium

When Covington Schools constructed a new K-8 building, it wanted to capture the tradition and history from the old middle school gymnasium into the design of the new gym while maintaining the Buccaneer branding that has become the staple of the school. Since some of the funding for the new K-8 building prevented transferring a section of the old gym floor into the new gym, we took color samples of the old gym floor and matched that color by staining the wood in some of the graphic areas (Home of the Buccs). We also used historic photos from the add-a-year banners for each sport.

For this entire project, Color Green Creative designed all graphic mock-ups for the gym floor and graphic elements on the walls to scale and monitored the final production and installation. The end result is a gymnasium Covington Schools and the community can use with pride.

The above graphic shows the computer mock-up of the gym floor. Stain was used in the words “Home of the Buccs” to match the color of the gym floor from the old middle school.


Covington Hallway Graphics


Covington High School wanted to dress up its main entrance to the high school and minimize the ability for spectators at sporting events to see inside the offices without limiting the ability for office workers to see into the hallway from inside the office. Color Green Photo put together the perfect solution with 50/50 window graphics which allows office workers to see out and preventing spectators from seeing in. The concept graphically promoted three essential areas of Covington School – athletics, academics and activities, as well as emphasizing the school’s history and tradition.

Enhance U

Enhance U has become the premier athletic training facility in Southwest Ohio as evident by the number of athletes who have ultimately gone on to play at the collegiate and professional levels. As part of it’s on-location training programs, Enhance U needed a solution to attract attention while it was on the road at team camps. Color Green Creative developed an eye-catching van wrap for Enhance U, profiling the elite athletes who have benefitted from years of training. Each athlete was photographed in our Color Green Photo studio and used as the primary images for this amazing van wrap.

R&B Health Care Systems

In what was one of the most exciting and challenging web projects we’ve worked on, a website for R&B Health Care Systems and four additional websites for each of its assistant living locations turned out to be very rewarding. What made this project so successful is the fact that we were able to provide create five different websites that function seamlessly together – all the while maintain the R&B branding originally established by O’Hare Design, a colleague of Color Green Creative.

Visit the R&B websites below:

Village of Covington

The Village of Covington had a web presence that was insufficient for its needs. The website lacked flair and the ability for the Village to profile its history, village life and other subject matters it wished to communicate to local residents. It was a frustrating situation for the Village as updates had to be outsourced, which added unneeded stress to its annual budget.

Color Green Creative put together a captivating solution that allows the Village of Covington to keep its residents completely informed on anything and everything related to Covington, Ohio. The website is loaded with information – from a business directory to profile local businesses to a complete history of the Village of Covington. The website is filled with photographs and galleries from years gone by and up-to-date images and information to keep users coming back to the website.

In short, this website was a slam dunk in regards to exceeding the expectations of the customer – AND, most importantly, the website saves the village a significant amount of money annually because updates can be made by village personnel.

Creative Grounds Group

Creative Grounds Croup is a start-up company needing an entire web solution with a minimal budget. Color Green Creative worked within the budget constraints, but was still able to provide a solution in which positioned Creative Grounds Group as the leader in athletic field installation and maintenance as well ad the experts in residential and commercial grounds construction and maintenance. This solution also provided Creative Grounds the ability to self manage its website through a content management system.

Millmark Construction

Millmark Construction had a virtually no web presence and needed a full functioning website it could maintain in house – very similar to its sister company Milcon Concrete. Color Green Creative developed a captivating and informative environment that enhanced the Millark brand and offered a consisted functional solution for its sister company, Milcon.

ONU Football

The Ohio Northern University football program looked to Color Green Creative and it’s creative team to upgrade the team lounge, much like previous projects for the men’s basketball program and the female locker room. Key elements for this project were to emphasize the amazing stadium, the tradition of the program and offer a medium to reward current players who excel on the field. What materialized was a captivating area where individual action photos could be replaced with updated images without the extensive cost of replacing the entire background graphic that runs around the lounge area.
