The result was a one-of-a-kind history wall that intertwines graphics and interactive elements, set within an aluminum structure, creating an information-rich, three-dimensional, and aesthetically pleasing tribute to Generac’s journey.

The Challenge: Creating a Dynamic Tribute

Generac wanted a history wall that was not only visually appealing but also educational and engaging. The goal was to create an installation that would capture the company’s evolution, innovations, and milestones while reflecting its forward-thinking ethos. The design needed to resonate with employees, visitors, and stakeholders, providing a comprehensive yet engaging overview of Generac’s contributions to the power solutions industry.
