Go Graphix: The “MAAC Daddy” of Tournament Graphics

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Springfield, Mass. – The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference named the MassMutual Center in Springfield as the site for the 2012-2014 MAAC Basketball Championships. Of course, the MassMutual Center is a world-class venue offering all the amenities, but because of the high profile nature of the tournament, they chose Go Graphix to handle their graphics needs.

To spruce up downtown streets and raise awareness of the event, Go Graphix produced 40 street banners. A giant 12’ x 50’ banner was made to hang out in front of the MMC for all passersby to see. Inside, Go Graphix produced and installed the court graphics, championship boards and numerous of signs and graphics.

Go Graphix is very proud of its relationship with the MassMutual Center. This beautiful 8,000-seat multi-purpose arena is home to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League and the Springfield Armor of the NBA Development League.

The MAAC is also represented in Springfield at The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame with an exhibit which positions the MAAC with the legends and history of the game of basketball. To accomplish this important project, 42 Design Fab called in Go Graphix to produce all of the graphics for the exhibit.

Presidential Graphics

Friday, February 10th, 2012

When President Obama recently visited the Rolls Royce plant in Prince George, VA, Go Graphix in East Longmeadow, MA answered the call to provide banners and backdrops. There isn’t much prior notice given for presidential stops, so, needless to say, producing numerous large banners and finishing them off in a day was quite a challenge.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition Chooses Hill Family

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

On June 21, Ty and his team traveled to Suffield, Connecticut with special reason to whistle while they work – as “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in seven days rebuilds the small, fire-damaged and deteriorating home of the musical Hill family who give the gifts of song and inspiration to their community.

Known to local admirers as the “family choir,” the 13 Hill family members – William and Catherine along with their sons, daughters, nieces and nephews — have motivated friends and neighbors with their musical talents, academic achievements and selfless generosity. Cramped living conditions and sorely needed electrical, plumbing, roof and other home repairs have continued to take a backseat to helping those in need and providing a good education for the children. Five of the Hill siblings and cousins living at home are college students, and the family also scrimps and saves to provide medical treatment and care in their home for cousin Shamia, who received a kidney transplant from daughter Sonia.
Growing up in the housing projects of Hartford, Connecticut, William and Catherine Hill both dreamed of a safe and happy home brimming with their passion for music and education. Hard work and persistence made their dream come true – until the nightmare of a fire in 1993 damaged their small ranch house well beyond what insurance money could repair. It is now up to “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to rebuild the Hill family with the home they truly deserve.

While Ty and the designers, local builder Pecoy Signature Homes and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Hill family will go on vacation to Walt Disney World.
