Muma Basketball Center, University of South Florida, Tampa
Slam dunk! Signs Now – Tampa, Florida goes all out to brand the new practice facility with signs, banners, graphics and more in time for its Grand Opening!
Completed in 2011, the Pam and Les Muma Basketball Center at the University of South Florida (USF) serves as the focal point for the school's sports complex. The 51,000-square-foot facility features two practice courts, player locker rooms, lounges and more for the men's and women's basketball teams.
The new center would, of course, need graphics and signage of all types. In the interest of enhancing convenience, communications and quality, university administrators cast an eye for a single resource experienced enough to do it all. This was no occasion for a signage provider to drop the ball!
Having earned the trust of the USF administrative staff in successfully completing many previous projects, Signs Now – Tampa, Florida was first to get the call. Excited at completing a large-scale project for a long-term client on a high-profile occasion, sign maker thought the opportunity was too enticing to pass!
And, thus began a full-court press. Outside the Center, the university called for three wall banners. Inside, the list included numerous dimensional wall signs featuring USF’s distinctive Bulls mascot as well as large-size photos. Multiple vinyl championship and player banners were also needed!
While the university’s list of deliverables was long, the turnaround time was short. Having received the project just prior to Muma Basketball Center’s Grand Opening, Signs Now – Tampa addressed an accelerated schedule requiring sign-offs from many school administrators. For installations, the sign maker also had to work around frequent practices at the facility, which was already in use by the teams.
Winning at the buzzer! As the clock ticked down, Signs Now – Tampa stepped up. All of the many signs were sized, fabricated and mounted to schedule—earning enthusiastic applause from all who attended the Grand Opening!
