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.
