Pnovak1 got their new signage by running a design contest:
Create a Cool Table of Analysis Modeled on the Periodic Table of Elements
Check out Pnovak1's Signage contest…
CARO Analytical Services is a full service environmental laboratory with locations in Vancouver, Edmonton and Kelowna. In a nutshell: we use chemistry to test for environmental contaminants. Read: WE ARE CHEMISTS :) Our target audience is mainly business to business, targeting environmental professionals, scientists, engineers, etc... We like to also be progressive mostly tailoring to the 25-35 year old age group. There are also a lot of women in this industry so gender neutral and classy elements are essential.
What's your vision?
We have an analytical chemistry laboratory and we are mostly all chemists. We would like to model the board of squares that contain our common analytical analysis after the Periodic Table of the Elements, a standard template for which can be found via Google. It should be titled, "CARO Analytical Table of Analysis". We would like to replace each element with one of the parameters that we test for. I have prepared a template that is attached below, to show what should be represented in each square. The square formatting should be designed to mimic the standard Periodic Table, so a number in the top left corner, the analytical holding time in the top right corner, the descriptor centered along the bottom, and an image of the corresponding parameter in the middle. Please see the third attached document for a sample of how we would like the squares to look. To keep things simple, we are looking to highlight a few squares (perhaps 30-40 or so) that will contain a photo/graphic, keeping the SO4 and other written "elements" while the others will could be blank or filled with a relevant image. This idea, however, is entirely up to the designer. We do ask, however, that the colour scheme be set to match our logo, be similar in style to our past 99design projects and that the logo be included as a part of the title. In terms of size, the final size of the poster should be in the area of 5ft by 3 ft, so the individual squares should be sized accordingly.
We want to keep it clean and simple, and to maintain visual integrity if we choose to scale it down for smaller promotional material. Preferably, we would like this to be delivered in photoshop and illustrator formats if possible (which I believe it is possible to do both easily and not twice the work). See our other contests for similar design elements. See our website and try to match to look and feel www.caro.ca See our twitter @caroanalytical or instagram #caroanalytical
CA$379 Silver package
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Signage starts at $199.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their signage.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Pnovak1 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
