Boys & Girls Club of Newark Signage for George to the Rescue
The nationally televised George to the Rescue home improvement television show on NBC featured Trillion signage for their Boys & Girls Club of Newark teen room makeover. Trillion was asked by Budget Blinds of Westfield to design quotes for large, motorized, retractable window shades that were to be used in the room. Taking the large sizes into account, as well as the fact that the window shades could be retracted in various positions, we designed shades with the Boys & Girls Clubs logo along with quotes from Shaquille O’Neal, Oprah Winfrey, Cory Booker, and more. The window shade designs spanned the entire length of the redesigned room; over 40 feet.
“It was nice to contribute our design expertise for a great cause, but nothing was more rewarding than seeing the kids interact with the new room during the show’s big reveal,” said Lou Leonardis, creative director at Trillion. Newark mayor Cory Booker was present at the show and handled the reveal to the kids along with the show’s interior designers and contractors.
The George to the Rescue episode that featured Trillion’s design work aired in major cities across the nation and locally on NBC 4, Saturday, April 27th at 10am and 7pm EST. You can watch the full episode here.
