CFG Bank Arena is a 14,000+ seat, reimagined world-class concert and entertainment venue and the premier destination for the biggest artists and events in Baltimore, Maryland – the city affectionately known as Charm City. They host 120+ shows annually, including the hottest artists on the planet. CFG Bank Arena also offers an upgraded experience with their Fearless Club, which includes premium upgrades like a dedicated arena entrance, exclusive culinary options, after-show access, private restrooms, and more!

This iconic Baltimore landmark, operated by the Oakview Group, has recently undergone a  $250MM+ renovation to offer guests the ultimate entertainment experience in town. The reimagined space features a myriad of modernized fan enhancements, including show-stopping wall graphics and new wayfinding signage by Strategic Factory.

CHALLENGE: Find a Local Partner To Execute CFG Arena’s Signage Revamp

As a part of the CFG Bank Arena redevelopment, Oak View Group wanted to feature large-scale, visually captivating wall murals, dimensional lettering and logos, and new ADA and wayfinding signage throughout the arena.
