Signs Signs Everywhere A Sign
Sorry, no long haired freaky people today. But I do have another sign. Ya ya.. You spin this crap every day during the winter. T shirts in the works, No woody jokes thank god, cause I am just bored of those as well. But had to ask. So now we can move on. So, todays sign. Well, its for the back of the building at the peak of the large building. Its going to be painted red, and painting on that would be insane. So I made a round logo lock up of WB and Railway. Anyway, here is a step by step of how I did it. Found the plywood in the barn BTW, and used house paint. Doing it in the basement of the house and paint smells would get me evicted.
And here is a mock up of how it will look on the building
Yes, like the mock up a lot
Love the cowsills
It looks great. It amazes me how you can do all that by hand!
Dat’s purdy! Better than a clock that tells if it’s Miller” time
Sign looks great, but I think it would POP more if you leave the apex of the building the silver/grey that it is currently. The sign kind of fades a little with the red background.
Just my 2 cents.
I agree, Troy. It kinda blends in & gets lost, with the gable in red.
Looks awesome – excited to see it on the building once complete. You might wanna do a sample of the white paint with the clear coat first – sometimes the clear (depends on brand) will yellow up the white paint once it’s applied.
I am looking forward to an HQ event. The last time I was there you were just a customer. It has come a LONG way in a short time!
Cool sign & fun to see how you create these artworks!
Here is a mock up with the top silver. I would need to make the ring around the circle black to pop. Also to Kevins point, YES, in fact I want a water based clear that is flat so it smooths out.
If I go silver, then there needs to be some sort of Silver in the base to connect it all
Okay now I am obsessing.
And another, the issue here is the black top and the silver top do not match up with the rest of the Railway. Although there is an argument for the silver since the HQ Color pallett is Red, Black and Silver, white is an off white for signage only
I am planning on making the window on the dorr larger which will help the ballence of it all.
Matt, I like most of your combinations, however, whichever one you pick, may I suggest painting the cinder blocks red…………………….you know……..for balance.
The more that I look at the options and the building on the right, I would think it should match…..red peak with white roof trim…….bwtfdik.
Red peak. No good ever comes from listening to Troy.
NO BACON FOR YOU !!!
Anyone that can cook bacon in a bikini without getting burned from grease spatter is bada$$ in my book.
I got into you head, with that Five man electricial band song the other day “sign sign everywhere a sign” did’nt I Matt. Cool song. Mike , I did’nt realise that the cowsills did a version of that also. Ear worms can make a person productive. Very cool sign. I think another story would be hanging it. Silver peak. It breaks it up.
maybe it wasnt the cowsills
crap im getting old
But the Cowsills did do “Indian Lake”. Hell we’re all getting old Mike
If you expand the pictures you might change your mind as to what looks “right”. These little 2″ x 3″ aren’t large enough to make an informed decision. When I expand it the red gable end looks best. I originally agreed with Troy until I expanded the pic.
OK Floyd I get what you are saying, but I still like this best (only with the bigger windows and no writing).
I don’t have photo shop or I would make that combination, and NO I don’t think it needs to match the other building either.
Looks great! Cant wait to see the finished product and whatever pics Troy comes up with. Lol
If all this gets too confusing I’d say put four legs on the sign and turn it into a great coffee table for your ‘lounge’.
Amazing work Matt, fun to see it happening.
Leave the gable red, but paint the trim triangle silver.
Liking bigger window, same style as existing window.
Another vote to paint the concrete block red.
How do we collect our consultant fee? 🙂
Great ideas from all. But, I prefer red gable end with white trim for facia; larger window that nearly matches the one on the left for “window sill” and upper “height” from the ground, pane numbers and size – currently proposed window is too large, too low and just looks silly. Place “Life in the Past Lane below the new window in two lines as shown, in black. Paint the block foundation red.
