Pickering Landmark gets National Recognition

Posted on Tuesday November 08, 2016

The LED-backlit Pickering crests, located on the east and west faces of the Pickering Civic Complex Tower, have been recognized at the 2016 Sign Competition Awards at Sign Expo Canada.

The City of Pickering congratulates Pattison Sign Group, the sign and visual communication company that led the crest installation work, and who received the esteemed award in the Fascia Signs/Channel Letters (Tenant Signage) category.

Sign Expo Canada is the Sign Association of Canada’s National Trade Show, and is regarded as Canada’s premier industry event. The Trade Show showcases the latest and best products and services in the sign industry, as well as features the renowned Sign Competition, Wrap and Design Competition, and Creative Competition.

The pin-mounted, stainless steel crests were installed in summer of 2016, as part of a larger masonry repair project at Pickering City Hall.

Although Pickering’s Logo has evolved over time, the crest, originally created in 1974, remains on a number of prominent landmarks in commemoration of the municipality’s rich history. The themes of atomic energy, industry, agriculture, greenspace, and Lake Ontario are all represented in the design.
