Creative Places in 2022 Sign Contest
We are honored to be recognized in the 2022 Sign Contest – winning both second and third place in the Best Outside Design/Shop Fabrication, Illuminated category. The annual Signs of the Times contest showcases innovation from sign shops around the world.
Basing the design on a drawing from The Beck Group, our senior designer, Don Butler, had to color and number coordinate each individual acrylic piece that was receiving digital print so all the shapes would line up. CSD created a custom channel letter backlight solution, then one of our lead fabricators single-handedly fabricated and assembled the entire sign, which features the names of Tampa Preparatory School’s graduating class.
The result of an ongoing partnership with SeaWorld’s parent company, Busch Gardens, CSD created this 17-ft.-tall main entry feature set within the center of a fountain to play up the waterpark theme. The multi-phase installation required getting the sign foundations and anchor bolts in place prior to the fountain being poured.
