Avista Gets a Birthday Makeover


As part of Avista’s celebration of its founding in 1889, the company remodeled its corporate headquarters' foyer and lobby, tasking helveticka with messaging elements that both acknowledge Avista’s 125-year history and reinforce its brand. For the foyer, helveticka designed a custom 3D entry sign; the lobby, designed by Avista’s interiors team, includes a video wall – an array of four 52” flat-screen monitors – for promotional messaging, some of which was produced by helveticka: Avista’s 125-year anniversary film and seven informational animation shorts focusing on electricity generation, environmental stewardship, and more. Near the video wall are four milestones panels, also created by helveticka, that provide a glimpse into some of Avista’s historic achievements over the last 125 years.
