We spend countless hours at work.
Our career paths become part of who we are. Many friends, challenges, triumphs and memories are formed over this course, so when it's time to retire, we want to remember.
Shadow box frames are a great way to display keepsakes from work. The depth of a shadow box allows for many options when choosing what to highlight and you don't have to limit yourself to one-dimensional items. In one frame you can relive your entire journey or you can select key items from an important accomplishment. The choice is yours! They're your memories and your retirement!
Our client had a longtime career at CAE Inc. (Military Division).
To highlight the details in the plate we selected a grey background for the items to sit on and a complimentary teal blue mat for the outer edge. A deep black wood moulding was chosen for the frame. This combination picks up the CAE company colors beautifully.
We also wanted to carry consistency into the shapes of the frame design and work items. The moulding profile has an angular bevel that picks up the shape of the retro font on the steel emblem and the angular logo on the business cards. It's all the details!
