Favorite Signs of 2018

Four Sweet Signs and a Donor Wall = Our Favorite Signs, 2018 edition

Here we are in 2019 and while we’re look­ing for­ward to anoth­er great year of cre­ative projects, great clients, and growth, we’d like to take a minute to check out just a few of our favorite signs from 2018.

So, in no par­tic­u­lar order:


This mon­u­ment sign was part of a larg­er rebrand­ing project. This sign was engi­neered to fit over the top of the pre­vi­ous stone mon­u­ment sign which helped save time and mon­ey by avoid­ing demo or removal. The (very detailed) logo is stood off and back-lit with white LEDs

It’s an elec­tric gui­tar, of course it’s going to be at the top of our list of favorite signs! This 22 foot wide gui­tar uses flex­i­ble LED light­ing to achieve that neon” look and feel. The sign is also a tem­po­rary sign so need­ed to be engi­neered so that it could safe­ly be installed, removed, and stored between seasons. 

Corten steel has always been pop­u­lar. But Faux Corten steel made a big push this year. Our pro­duc­tion team has mas­tered the art of mak­ing alu­minum look like rust­ed steel and with­out the mess or residue in the long term of actu­al rust­ing steel. Oh, not to men­tion that the illu­mi­na­tion is pow­ered by a solar panel. 

These high­ly engi­neered cityscape signs are great for wayfind­ing. Not only do they look great, but they are also con­struct­ed to break­away if need­ed to reduce the impact on the foot­ings and make it eas­i­er to install a new ver­sion in the event it’s need­ed. Design cred­it: Corbin Design

Donor walls aren’t usu­al­ly our thing, but when it involves faux corten it is! This illu­mi­nat­ed donor wall has accent acrylic lay­ered under the faux corten tree trunks that high­light donor names. What a great and fit­ting design for a nature cen­ter to hon­or it’s donors!
