Signage is a simple industry, that is until it IS NOT.
Signage is one of the few industries this writer is aware of that has almost ZERO barriers to entry, with the resulting HIGH level of competition that one would expect from an industry that is established, simple and requires very little specialized knowledge or specialized equipment.
Since signage has been sound for thousands of years – yes literally (but not quite the way it is today) signage seems to be a simple industry to get into. And in reality for the most part signage is a simple industry.
As with any industry – or sport – it is very simple to be a spectator and KNOW what the ‘experts’ or players should be doi9ng, but when one suddenly finds yourself say on center court at Flushing Meadows facing a serve from Ivan Lendl (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Lendl) what always seemed like a simple move is suddenly more than overwhelming. I can attest to this from personal experience, as for kicks I was asked to face a serve or two from Mr. Lendl. Needless to say, he had the first tennis ball back in his hand BEFORE my tennis racquet HAD MOVED!!!
As the saying goes, professional’s make complex tasks look simple, mostly because they PRACTICE over and over and over again, so when they get to face an unusual situation – or a sign that looks simple but is in fact highly complex to produce in 3D format – the time practicing allows one to come up with workable solutions.
The YINGLI SOLAR sign at the top of this post is one such sign. Looking at the sign one would never imagine the multitude of ways the sign can be produced to create the desired 3D look and feel the client desired.
SignForce managed to produce the internally illuminated 3D sign after some interesting fabrication were assessed, and got the sign out ON TIME! And ON BUDGET!
When you are in the market looking for signs that have a strict deadline and a set budget, SignForce is the supplier for you.
