Congratulations to Kreg Lyles, Marc Sund, and Gordon Sign of Denver, CO for being awarded 1st Place in this year's Signs of the Times International Sign Design Contest for Electric Building Signs!
This hipster pizza place in Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood serves up a gourmet mixture of pizzas, salads and hors d’oeuvres. A sign that places a modern twist on the classic, neon pizza-place sign is certainly appropriate. Gordon Sign’s Kreg Lyles designed the program using CorelDRAW X6 and Trimble SketchUp software. The 3-D sign, which Marc Sund fabricated, comprises an aluminum skin, illuminated with reverse-pan channel letters, that’s brightened by SloanLED single-line LED modules set to pivot from side to side to create a shape-shifting illusion as the viewer passes by. The shop cut metal and plastic components on its Computerized Cutters Accu-Cut XPS router, and painted them with Matthews fire-red and gloss-black, acrylic-polyurethane coatings.
