HOMEWORK! Just for fun!

Your assignment, should you choose to try it:

Let's design a sign for a fictitious law firm.
It can be vehicle lettering, a carved sign, vinyl on Correx,
window lettering, an awning, sandblasted, handpainted,
whatever blows your hair back.

The name of the business is:
Dewi, ROCKHAM, & HOWE

Design their sign and then upload your image here.

This is not a contest. There is no time limit, as this thread
will probably go over like the proverbial turd in a punchbowl!
Show us your ideas!
Love....Jill :wink:
PS
Sorry Dewi! And my brother is a lawyer, so I don't hate them.

No worries :D Done my homework like a good boy, although I chose a business card - could be a sign I s'pose :-?

Cheers, Dewi

Yay! Thanks, Dewi. Nice job!
I knew I could count on you. Forgot the biz card one!
Here's what I came up with, it helped to pass the morning. Any others?

Here's mine. Dimensional gilded letters for the main copy and surface gilded sub text. The scales will be dimensional too standing off the sign.

i only use signlab and photoshop mate. never ever see the need for anything else.

photoshop is pricey, corel has just as many if not more features and its better priced.

i use signlab for all vector work, photoshop for images.

hope this helps...

p.s.
if anyone else is replying, try keep this thread as it originated on design. maybe steve, Dewi etc could edit their message box in their upload to show software.. not sure. just a thought. i didnt want this thread to drift onto software as the design submitions are good topic for this time of year.

Don't be too hard on yourself mate. I thought it looked pretty good.

You were obviously going for the minimilust corporate look :lol1:

Brushed stainless steel case with raised s/s diamond shape
Flat cut acrylic lettering, raised for company name
Flat cut acrylic lettering, not raised for all other lettering & logo
It would be a double sided sign and illuminated from below

:lol1: :lol1: I thought I would just add the details above so you dont just think its a grey sign :P

Carrie :D .... almost got really carried away and started designing the sign base, grass and everything :o :lol1:
