This blog post highlights the successful partnership between National Branding and D1 Training Lake Orion, owned by Dimitra and George Boulos. We’ll explore their journey from initial concept to grand opening, showcasing the dedication and teamwork involved in creating a standout fitness destination.

A Shared Vision Takes Root

Dimitra and George Boulos first encountered the National Branding Team at the National D1 Training Conference. As the official sign company for all D1 locations across the US, National Branding was a natural fit for their upcoming venture in Lake Orion, Michigan. The proximity to National Branding’s home office further solidified the connection.

“It was just an instant connection,” says Dimitra. “From the moment we introduced ourselves, they were incredibly welcoming and approachable.”

As first-time business owners, Dimitra and George felt some initial trepidation, especially regarding signage. The D1 franchise model provided a framework, but signage remained an unfamiliar territory. National Branding’s reputation for exceptional customer service and expertise instantly appealed to them.

From Vision to Reality: A Collaborative Process

The collaboration began weeks before the grand opening. The planning phase was crucial, allowing National Branding to understand Dimitra and George’s vision and specific requirements for the Lake Orion location.

The design process focused on crafting custom signage solutions that aligned perfectly with the D1 Training brand while ensuring functionality within the facility. National Branding worked closely with Dimitra and George to achieve this balance.

Making a Bold Statement: Exterior Signage

The first step involved exterior signage, including a large, illuminated sign proudly displaying the D1 Training logo for maximum visibility. Durable materials and high-quality lighting were meticulously chosen to ensure the sign’s longevity and vibrancy. The smooth and efficient installation process resulted in a striking first impression for anyone approaching the facility.

Enhancing the Athlete Experience: Interior Signage

Next, National Branding focused on interior signage, creating an environment that embodied the D1 Training spirit. Wall graphics, motivational quotes, directional signs, and branded elements were strategically placed throughout the gym. Each element was designed to enhance the athlete experience, providing both functional guidance and inspirational messages.

Dimitra and George Share Their Enthusiasm

“Working with National Branding was a fantastic experience,” says Dimitra. “They truly understood our vision and brought it to life with their exceptional signage solutions. The exterior sign makes a bold statement, and the interior graphics create an inspiring atmosphere for our athletes. We’re thrilled with the results and can’t wait to welcome our members to the new D1 Training Lake Orion location.”

The Final Touch: A Cohesive Space

With the final signage elements installed, the D1 Training Lake Orion facility transformed into a space that was both functional and visually captivating. The cohesive design elements tied together the D1 Training brand, creating a seamless experience for everyone who walks through the doors.

A New Chapter Begins: Grand Opening

With the signage complete and the facility prepped, D1 Training Lake Orion opened its doors! The grand opening was a celebration of hard work, dedication, and a shared vision brought to life. Athletes of all ages now have a state-of-the-art training facility to push their limits and achieve their goals.

A Partnership Built on Success

The collaboration between National Branding and D1 Training Lake Orion exemplifies the power of combining passion and expertise. We’re proud to have played a role in this project and look forward to supporting more D1 Training locations in the future.
