Experimenting With Typography
In signage, typography often provides that at-a-glance first impression that people gauge and judge the rest of the design by — so your font choices need to be purposeful and appropriate.

Choose the right font.

 

Carla's Garden
"I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow." — David Hobson

All signs have meaning.

Welcome To Camp Crystal Lake 
"My thoughts and opinions on the sign.... WOW! I think that about sums it up!!! I have had the sign for a few days,, however, we are fostering a VERY active two year old and I wanted to wait until i was alone so I could open it and truly appreciate the sign.. Initially, I will admit I was concerned about spending that much money on something I wouldn't have the chance of seeing until I have already spent the money.. But my fears were put to bed as I opened the box and started unpacking.... I am truly blown away by the finished product!!! It looks amazing!! I will piece together a video review and post it on my youtube page and send you a link when it's finished if you would like to watch it? I will also incorporate the photos you sent along as well!! Thanks for including them it will make the review that much nicer!!

Thanks again Tom! I will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants to know where i acquired such an awesome sign!!!"

 

 

Bradley's Painting

While contrast is an important part of any design project, it is especially important when you only have a couple of seconds to catch someones attention. Every focal point needs to be clearly distinguishable.
