Delcon Civil

This background in construction and surveying was invaluable while building the business from scratch, he says. “[It] gave me a really good understanding in most aspects of civil construction.” Obtaining success also took persistence and dedication. “It is a passion of mine,” Dave explains. “It is something that I take personally because I have built it from the ground up.”

Signs Of Progress

That is the view of Daryl Mills, Chief Executive of Victoria-based Kemsigns Group, who would like the company to be regarded as more than ‘just’ a sign-maker. He told us that even for big corporate clients who have their in-house design manual, Kemsigns’ design team can have a considerable amount of input. “We have to provide what’s known as ‘local store layout,’” he says. In the case of Subway, for instance, one of Kemsigns’ most prestigious clients, the team has to send an image of how each store will look to the US headquarters for approval. “But we have other clients who come to us when they want to revamp their image or even who don’t have anything yet, and want us to create a brand for them and we are happy to work on that basis as well.” Kemsigns can, if needed, develop the entire brand for roll-out across a client’s entire business.

Yet what, exactly, constitutes ‘smart’?
