At the University of Rhode Island, the Rams have access to some of the most impressive facilities in the northeast. One major addition to the URI campus has been the state of the art Thomas M. Ryan Center. Not only does this facility host the men’s and women’s basketball teams, but it also includes the football team’s locker room, team rooms, and the athletic department offices. The Ryan Center can hold close to 8,000 fans and has the ability to host not only athletic competitions but also events and concerts.
When the facilities team at URI wanted to give the blank walls a facelift, they called on the team at AMI Graphics to make the most of the space. AMI was given measurements from the Rams facilities team and went to work designing custom adhesive wall murals to help brand the empty spaces and add school branding.
On the wall murals, all the teams who call the Ryan Center home were showcased, including the men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and football teams. The murals also showed off the Alex and Ani court where basketball games are played and the students of URI cheer on their team with passion. The final result was installed surrounding the Athletics Hall of Fame, where fans can see past athletes who have had an impact on the URI programs.
In addition to the wall murals surrounding the Hall of Fame, concession signage and branding was refreshed around the different food options on the concourse. Above the main concession stands, adhesive murals were installed showing the style of food and adding branding. In a Dunkin Donuts location inside the Ryan Center, adhesive wall murals were added as sponsor signage to add to the ambiance of the kiosk.
Above the food vendors on the larger portion of the wall, different comedians who have performed in the past at the Ryan Center were shown, including major names like Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.
AMI’s installation team traveled to Kingston, Rhode Island to install the adhesive wall murals and were able to make quick work of the job, finishing the project seamlessly in less than a day.
