In addition to valuing our client relationships, we believe that strong businesses help build strong communities. Mister Sign is committed to helping our local community through charitable giving and participating in events that help support the next generation of entrepreneurs.
A Clear Direction:
Mister Sign at its core began in my teens; I always created new business ventures and ideas. Early on, I realized the need for clear visual communication when I held a yard sale that almost nobody attended. All of my cardboard signs had been lettered with silver paint, making them completely unreadable.
I taught myself branding, website building, how to develop visual marketing aids, business cards and promotional products for each new idea I explored. Through my exploration, I developed a passion for creating unique and effective branding. I found that no matter the industry, one strategy worked in every situation: clean designs and clear messages.
The Mister Sign Timeline:
In 2007, I was given the chance to work in the sign industry. I spent the next few years learning everything I could from my mentor, and teaching myself the rest. When the time came to part ways, I worked for other sign companies, taking jobs in every aspect of the company from sales to design to production. Eagerly learning everything I could from top to bottom.
In 2012, after meeting my wonderful wife, I became a stay at home dad for a year for our amazing daughter. During that year, I continued to learn more about graphic design, and do small branding and sign projects for clients who had followed me throughout my career in the sign industry.
Seeing the repeated requests from my clients, I decided to open Mister Sign in 2013 with the support of my wife. With a lifetime of exploration, and 10 years of direct experience, Mister Sign is well on its way to becoming the Design and Production studio I have always dreamed of owning.
The Human to Human Touch:
We live in a world where anyone can go to the craft store and purchase a vinyl cutter for under $100. Poor quality banners using template graphics are around every corner of the internet, and everybody has a nephew who took a semester of graphic design. Signage and Design work have become commodities and it is our mission to bring artistry back to the sign industry.
With so much experience as a business owner, my goal is to create the “Human-to-Human” connections that I have always enjoyed with the people I work with. We treat each project, no matter how small, as important and valuable; we question the content and make suggestions to make it more effective resulting in a unique and professional product.
We hope you will enjoy working with us for years to come.
