Handmade metal sign for Blue Heron Design

Blue Heron Design is a cool and funky shop in downtown Lee's Summit, Mo. The challenge was to replace their aging wooden and vinyl sign with something that captured the vibe of the store better. So, I created this handmade steel sign. The logo and name of the business is cut from a steel sheet. Steel bars frame the sign. The entire piece is given a rusty finish and sealed with acrylic coating. A portion of the logo is offset from the background and painted a hammered silver.

The sign is offset from the brick to add depth and shadow.

In addition, I made a smaller projection sign. A big circle shows off just the logo of the store. A custom bracket holds the sign.
