Cobb Galleria Marquee
Cooper Carry’s Environmental Graphic Design (EGD) Studio worked with Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority to design Cobb Galleria’s new $2 million, 100-foot digital marquee. This will replace the existing 50-foot sign that sits along I-285 that is now blocked by a pedestrian bridge crossing I-285 to SunTrust Park.
Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority Board Member, Bob Voyles said, “Once the Braves deal was announced (we) wanted to employ the most current technology, we want to create the most iconic sign.”
Cooper Carry’s main goal was to develop a design that looked more sculptural, becoming an addition to the skyline at 100 feet tall. The side of the sign that faces I-285 has a carved out portion revealing programmable LED lights behind glass panels with an etched pattern that reflects the Cobb Galleria logo. The new marquee has 2,600 square feet of digital screen on three surfaces. The base of the digital screen sits 60 feet above the top grade to ensure visibility from the highway. The Cobb Galleria Centre logotype is featured in large dimensional letters that are halo illuminated against the surface on two sides.
