Project Spotlight: Custom Donor Wall Display

Updated: Jun 15

BlueFire Creates a Custom Donor Wall Display for DC-based Non-Profit

The Leadership Institute collaborated with the BlueFire team to create a custom donor wall for their headquarters in Arlington, Virginia.

As a non-profit organization, the Leadership Institute has been supported by a dedicated network of donors since its inception. The Leadership Institute felt it would be an excellent opportunity to highlight their phenomenal donors by creating a captivating custom wall display in their honor. Development Assistant, Aron Railey reached out to the BlueFire team to execute this vision.

Bringing a Vision of Recognition to Life

The BlueFire team began the process with a project discovery meeting with the client to develop a greater understanding of their vision and to develop a plan of action that would bring the custom wall display to life with a stunning end product. The project was designed to be a critical feature of the lobby in the Leadership Institute’s headquarters. The materials used to create the donor wall included a combination of the following:

  • PVC cut lettering to give a three-dimensional effect to the display

  • Frosted acrylic stand-offs to provide a floating effect to the donors’ names

  • Printed brushed silver elements

Throughout the consultation and installation process, the BlueFire team worked closely with the client to ensure that the overall appearance of the signage and implementation of the project were executed effectively.
