Services: Design, Fabrication, Installation

Brezel: Exterior sign fabrication for Brezel in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati Ohio and an interior sign for the Brezel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jeremy Slagle did the original 2d design and we did the all drawing, whittling, sculpting, mock-up building, for-real building, gold-leafing, welding, painting, and hoop jumping that it takes to make and hang a sign. 

Ethyl and Tank: We designed and created an exterior canister neon sign. For the interior, we resurrected a bunch of original 1930's neons for the bar and coffee shop, including the original "Ethyl" from an old gas station, and the original "Tank" from the same gas station. The "Sycamore Lodge" sign was salvaged from the original Sycamore Lodge in Zanesville, Ohio, and we rewired the original neon so that only the "MORE" would light. Seemed fitting for a college bar. Sadly, the neon was broken by the construction crew a few days after the opening of the bar.
