A professional logo is key to standing out in the marketplace and increasing your bottom line. Branding is much more than a logo and collateral. It’s what you say, how you say it and knowing your audience. Supporting brand elements like icons can convey big ideas in a compact image to help users find their way in both digital and physical space.

Once your customers find you, it’s essential to design an optimal user experience on-site. Well-designed monuments, wayfinding signs, and super graphics foster positive and profitable touch points that wow your audience, drive loyalty, and keep your customers sharing with their friends. John spent over 25 years working at every level in the sign industry. Few know the intersection of design and signs as well as we do.
