Abstract

This paper enunciates the viability and durability of Plexiglas material based on characteristic strength, shatter-proof properties and brilliance. The paper explores the suitability of Plexiglas in the display of information in outdoor advertising. Plexiglas is also appropriate for indoor décor because of its flexibility, easy to shape and not too sharp edges. The paper utilized Plexiglas as a key material in the production of customized electric powered table–led display for selected principal officers of Olabisi Onabanjo University Ago-Iwoye. Questionnaires were administered on six (6) respondents of whom some of the principal officers’ images and designation are customized on the LED Lamps. Findings show that the LED lamp adds ambience and aesthetics to the office of the principal officers. Plexiglas material gives durability to the lamp and enhances the allure of its illumination. Also, customization of the souvenirs with images and positions of the university officers celebrates the accomplishments of the principal officers.
