Bringing Neon Signs to Life

We’re big fans of neon signage. A well-built neon sign can last decades, if not longer. So, whenever we have an opportunity to pursue this option with our clients, we are, of course, more than happy to.

Aside from the intense colors and attractive glow they produce, I like the way neon signs force you to create the most simple, straightforward design. The way the mono-lined weight of the bulb cuts up the shapes and pieces them together to create an object or word pretty much demands it.

This video by Bloomberg showing how they are made is incredible. You’d think that in this day and age they would be spit out of a machine. But, no. It’s still a true handcraft. And that process makes them more appealing to me.
