ARTISTIC AND EXHIBIT DESIGN AND FABRICATION SERVICES FOR SITE SPECIFIC ARTWORK, COMMEMORATIVE PIECES, BRANDING AND DISPLAY PROJECTS

(contract last updated 05/09/2019)

SCOPE: Contract for Artistic and Exhibit Design and Fabrication Services for UW Departments. 

 

This Contract is designed to offer users a variety of qualified artists, graphic artists and firms with experience in designing and/or fabricating artistic interpretive or exhibit design elements, including site specific artwork, commemorative pieces, branding and interior/exterior display projects.  The location of the artwork will vary and will include indoor and outdoor walls, building entrances, furniture and other structures.  Some designs may be based on an existing logo or photo that needs to be enhanced or transformed to meet the specific requirements of the individual project.  Projects may be for both design and fabrication or fabrication only. 

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR UW DEPARTMENTS USING THIS CONTRACT (Contact Doreen Forslund, at (608) 262-1333 or doreen.forslund@wisc.edu for additional clarification.)  University departments will be free to compare the various vendors and pricing, conduct interviews and/or site visits, and purchase from the vendor of their choice.  Users should verify with vendors the specific services they are able to offer for each project.  As pricing varies among vendors, it is suggested, but not required, that users contact at least two vendors in the appropriate lot prior to committing to a project.

 

Special Approvals:  Prior approval from the Division of Facilities Planning and Management (FP&M) may be required for fabricated/installed products to ensure that the proposed work is a feasible project which complies with campus standards, structural requirements, state codes and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.

 

University Relations:  Campus units should consult with University Relations before working with outside vendors on graphic design, production, photography, video production, or printing.  Users of the contract should also note that University Communications and University Marketing, units within University Relations, provide assistance in news and media relations, issues management, writing and editing, research communications, publications management, graphic design, web design, online communication, advertising, marketing, and special events, and should be used for these purposes.  University Marketing manages the UW-Madison brand and visual identity including the implementation of the graphic identity campus wide, and provides support for all university entities that use UW-Madison logos and should be contacted regarding projects of this type.  The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s brand and visual identity guidelines are available online and include a description of the logo and guidelines for its use.  http://www.uc.wisc.edu/

Specialties:

The Wood Cycle has intentionally worked to diversify its offering, such that once we connect with a client, we are  able to produce whatever they next need in wood.  Having said that, there are still a few points of greater note.

 

The Wood Cycle is perhaps the most recognized for specializing in locally sourced woods.  In fact, the Wood Cycle has very intentionally never worked in woods that are not native to Wisconsin and whenever possible, the wood is sourced from the local landscape.  To our knowledge, we are the only area firm that is equipped to work from tree to finished  product, particularly with such a broad array of potential end products in mind.  More specifically within this realm, The Wood Cycle intentionally tracks its wood sources, such that we can routinely work specifically with a client’s own Wood from their own tree(s).

 

Custom furniture and artwork is a significant product area, with the most significant aspect being very large live-edge slabwork.  The Wood Cycle is specially equipped to harvest and dry wide slabs (current inventory includes slabs more than 4’ wide, 10’ long and 4” thick).  Our equipment and access to local logs also means we are able to find and cut unique and unusual slabs.  This allows a wide range of design potential.  Projects include large slab conference and dining tables, desks and a variety of more artistic items.  Many projects are one-of-a kind designs that are unique to the shapes of live-edge slabs.  Most projects are commissioned designs for specific commercial and residential  clients, but some project ideas are too unique to describe, so we simply need to build the products and then find the client.
