I finally finished on April 19th (the day before opening reception).
Opening reception was a “Red Carpet” event with lots of fanfare to celebrate the Patent Wall and honor all the inventors (147 patent leaves were installed!).
The photos do not do justice since there is no way to get back far enough to get the entire wall since it is in a hallway.
I thank the Patent Team (Patty, Liz, Lina, Laurie, Kiran & Cynthia) for selected me to create this “FUN” project for them and VP Victoria for her vision to create a Patent Wall.
The Patent Wall consists of 4 sections: “Welcome to Patent Park”, Gum, Candy and Packaging/Design. Each of the 3 categories has a central tree with a photo frame inserted into the trunk to display the patent information and a leaf for each of the patents (patent # and inventor name[s]). Following are the best photos I could take.
Swedish Fish – my favorite image
As you can see the company is not chocolate but so much more: Dentyne, Stride, Bubblicious, Trident, Halls, Bassett (licorice), The Natural Confection Co., Hollywood Chewing gum, and many more foreign candies and gums.
