If These Walls Could Talk
2 Back to all posts

Lipsey’s is one of the largest independently owned, single location firearm distributors in the country. With a rich history spanning more than 60 years, the company remains a family-run business today. MESH began to collaborate with Lipsey’s in 2013, tasked with the creation of a more modern logo design. From there, we moved to revamping their social media presence to increase brand awareness and enhance relationships with both dealers and customers.

When Lipsey’s moved to a new location earlier this month, they envisioned environmental graphic installations reflective of the company’s history and beliefs.

That’s when they turned to MESH. From the beginning, we had a few goals in mind…To tell the Lipsey’s story on a wall, not just a sheet of paper. To creatively display over half a century of history related to this family-owned Louisiana institution. To impress visitors from the moment they walk in the door and to motivate employees on a daily basis.

Below is what our team came up with. Metal, glass, plastic – we did it all, and now the iconic polar bear in the Lipsey’s atrium is no longer the only eye-catching element.
