DisplayArts is a home-based signwriting and signmaking business operated by Bruce Collins. It was started in January 1995 in the northern suburbs of Christchurch, New Zealand.
Bruce has a previous background of 12 years as a retail display artist, designing and dressing shop windows and interior merchandise displays in Christchurch, including two of the city's best-known retailers Ballantynes and McKenzie & Willis.
This was followed by 15 years merchandising, displaying and promoting major liquor brands, including Gordons Gin, Johnnie Walker Whisky, Coruba Rum, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Bourbon, Absolut Vodka, Jose Cuervo Tequila. This led to three further years merchandising and signage for Fosters Brewing promoting VB, Fosters Lager, Carlton Cold, Crown Lager and VB.
The bulk of our work is in handcrafted Signwriting and computer-generated Signmaking.
The handcrafted signwriting brush work is used to produce customised banners, posters, showcards, ticketwriting, and promotional interior signs.
Signmaking involves the use of state-of-the-art computer generated vinyl-cut lettering, which can be used for footpath signs, PVC banners, real estate signs, sandwich boards, magnetic signs, vehicle signs, and general signage.
