Farmer's State Bank - Graphics & Signage
To add to the theme and element of surprise at Farmers State Bank's new Helena branch, graphics, signage and murals reinforce the steampunk aesthetic throughout the interior and exterior. Site and building signage helps guide customers throughout the site and to the bank or the two tenant spaces. SMA also designed a ghost sign to help brand the building as 'The Railyard', utilizing imagery of the nearby train depot cupola. The ghost sign was painted by Walldogs International, an international collective of muralists, that have also restored several historic ghost signs throughout Helena. Walldogs also painted several murals throughout the site to disguise them with the steampunk look.
