Project Statement

When the founder of Lakefront Brewery went to Germany to research beer houses, he discovered, and fell in love with, elaborate holiday decorations in window boxes! So, he decided to bring the tradition home to Milwaukee, and enlisted our display department to make it happen. Rocking a cartoon reindeer theme, along with internally illuminated “beer bubbles,” beer steins, ball ornaments, and LED twists of fun, our artists brought the boxes to life. Looking good in the daytime, but really bright at night, they attract attention from blocks away.
Our team created the cartoon drawings and had them printed on a weather-resistant rigid substrate. Beer steins were inside-painted yellow to look full and incorporated into the design. But, the crowning achievement is the look of energetic foaming beer bubbles created with frosted plastic spheres. The display artists even engineered the lighting and did the installation of the Lakefront Brewery window boxes—getting to ride in a cherry picker! Cheers!
