HYVE – Salt Lake City Signage for Superior Multifamily Living

In the world of modern multifamily living, the right signage can make all the difference. Ad Light Group, in collaboration with Forum, recently embarked on another successful project that exemplifies this synergy. We had the privilege of providing design, fabrication, installation, and permitting services for the Hyve, a 296-unit apartment complex nestled in the heart of Salt Lake City. This project not only showcases our commitment to excellence but also highlights the art of creating multifamily Salt Lake City signage that mirrors the contemporary lifestyle offered by urban communities.


Designing for Elegance


Taking Salt Lake City Signage to New Heights


The first step in the journey of creating exceptional multifamily signage for Hyve was the design process. Ad Light Group worked closely with Forum to transform their branding package into a comprehensive sign family. This sign family not only met the stringent code requirements of Salt Lake City but also encapsulated the elevated design that is synonymous with modern multifamily developments.


The goal was clear: to mirror Hyve’s elegance and make a statement through the design. The east façade, in particular, features two striking sign cabinets mounted to the parapet, accompanied by a pendant wall sign on the south side. On the south entrance, a branded projecting sign and a Leasing Center blade guide prospective residents to their reserved parking spots. These elements, harmoniously integrated into the architecture, add a touch of sophistication to Hyve’s visual identity.


Crafting Exterior Signage with Street Appeal

Striking the Perfect Balance


The exterior signage design was a meticulous process that involved close collaboration with stakeholders and a deep understanding of Salt Lake City’s sign code regulations. Ad Light Group, in alignment with Forum’s vision, sought to maximize street appeal while adhering to these regulations. The result is a visually captivating design that not only attracts attention but also complies with the city’s stringent guidelines.


The aesthetics of the design are not just about branding; they also play a pivotal role in creating a sense of community and identity for residents. The design and placement of these elements were meticulously planned to enhance the overall visual experience of the Hyve complex while ensuring that they seamlessly blend with the surroundings.


Precision in Fabrication


Creating Design Masterpieces


The fabrication of the design elements was carried out at Ad Light Group’s state-of-the-art facilities. Our dedicated interiors team, metal fabrication team, and paint team collaborated to turn the designs into tangible masterpieces. Precision and attention to detail were paramount during this phase to ensure that the final products meet the highest quality standards.


From the selection of materials to the color palette and finishing touches, every element was carefully curated to bring the design to life. The end result is a set of design elements that not only withstand the test of time but also add a touch of elegance to the Hyve’s exterior.


Seamless Installation

Coordinating Excellence


The installation process was a well-coordinated endeavor. Ad Light’s project managers maintained constant communication with the Hyve site team to ensure that the installation was carried out flawlessly. This meticulous planning and collaboration not only ensured the safety of the installation crew but also prevented any disruptions to the ongoing construction.


Ad Light’s installation crew used specialized equipment to install the design elements with precision and efficiency. When necessary, they also coordinated site logistics to ensure a smooth and safe installation process.



In summary, the Hyve project stands as a testament to the power of design elements in elevating the aesthetics and functionality of multifamily developments.
