Creative Sign Designs Updates Tampa Bay Times Downtown Signage

Creative Sign Designs

Brighter things are happening downtown and Creative is happy to be part of the change.  The Times announced the purchase of the Tribune headquarters in downtown Tampa in May of 2012. The purchase marked the end of the 123-year-old Tampa Tribune as a stand-alone daily newspaper. The Times began its history about 134 years ago as the West Hillsborough Times out of Dunedin. It was known for most of its existence as the St. Petersburg Times, but changed its name to the Tampa Bay Times in 2012 to reflect the home territory it serves in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando counties. Get the full project details here. And check out the time lapse video below of the unveiling of the new exterior signage.

Why Invest in Solar Powered Signs

Creative Sign Designs

When it comes to solar energy capacity, Tampa is one of the top cities to watch nationwide! This is according to the 2017 “Shining Cities” report from the Frontier Group and Environmental Research and Policy. Tampa is in 32 place nationally when it comes to overall solar capability, which is a measure of how many watts per person of solar energy is produced in a given location.
