I love to think of every aspect of my signs as being important. Elements like brackets are designed in from the start - not an afterthought. Let me show you a couple examples.
The first was for a ficticious business called True North Sub Stop. It was a sample for my display in my studio. The bracket is actually part of the sign and plays off the shapes of the sign.
The second sign uses right angles and diamond shapes instead of circles.
I look forward to continuing to push the boundaries on future projects in an even more creative fashion.
