Corporate Headquarters Remodel

I’ve had the opportunity to work on a lot of great projects over the years. Every project is unique and offers its own set of challenges. One of my favorite projects was a recent corporate remodel of Legal Shield’s home office in Ada, Oklahoma. This project was fairly extensive and touched on pretty much every capability Diesel Displays has to offer. We were challenged to create a more interesting tour experience for the thousands of associates and employees that tour the facility annually asRead more

Paper or Plastic?

A Question of Durability This is not only a valid question at the grocery store but also one that should be asked when conceptualizing your next merchandising display. One of the key factors to determine materials for your display is how long does it needs to last? As a general rule of thumb I consider corrugate a good solution for a 3 to 6 month lifespan. Anything beyond that more durable materials should be considered. Corrugate displays do the jobRead more

Treehouse: Building a Sustainable Living

Diesel Displays partnered with Treehouse to bring the design of their customer service areas to life. In bringing these ideas to life, we were not only asked to work within all of our capabilities, but to also try out some new materials. My favorite was the Inhabit Living wall flats used for the Paint Desk inside of the Paint Studio. The flats create a wonderful texture and depth to the paint desk, making it one of my favorite pieces we completedRead more

Time to Catch Some Eyes

No matter your brand, when you have a product launch you want it done right. The goal when unveiling a new product is to create a memorable experience for consumers; to make a statement. There’s a number of ways to achieve this. Some are expensive and others risky. Many, however, are never truly original. This is where it pays to get creative. When Fossil (the licensor for Michael Kors watches) approached Diesel Displays, they wanted a unique display for their latest product launch: The Michael Kors’ Access. ThisRead more

Many individuals have an affection for the place they call home. And if home is where the heart is then the community is the blood that pumps it. Our collective “home” is our identity.

We too have a pride for where we call home – Dallas. When developing the Dallas Big installations youRead more

Working with the Community

Diesel Displays made a BIG move nearly a year ago. We switched office and production locations from Addison, Texas down the road to Carrollton, Texas. This was significant in that we doubled the size of our workspace. Since that time we’ve been able to get to know our new home. Carrollton is a booming suburb just north of Dallas, founded in 1842. There are sprawling parks, big name corporations like Halliburton and McKesson, and award winning schools. Carrollton is also centrally locatedRead more

Manufacturing: The Three Keys to Success

Satisfying supply and demand is a peculiar balance. Often, manufacturers are bogged down with the managing of equipment, personnel, logistics, and vendors. To help reign in these issues companies need to remember the three keys of manufacturing success: time, cost, and quality. Many believe you can only pick two of the three on any given project. Striking a balance in this magic triangle can lead to the success or failure of any good manufacturer. TIME – Create More of it Time is perhapsRead more
