NotTheSignShop | Maker | Studio | Middlesex, Vermont

We are Not. NotTheSignShop.

We are a Vermont-based Maker studio pursuing novel applications of technologies and materials, exploring connections between traditionally separate domains and ways of working, and building the unconventional in an improvisational style.

Happily at the intersection of CUSTOM DESIGN, NON-TRADITIONAL SIGNMAKING, and the EXPERIMENTAL, we partner with our clients to help the space around them convey who they are quickly, effectively, and with lasting results.

NotTheSignShop is a loose collaboration among several artists. To grant the artistic freedom and ability-to-experiment that anonymity provides, regular members receive an artist tag. Currently on the site are the works of Unruly-e, Pooks, and Fluffy.

Our shop is on a dirt road just north of Tangletown, in Middlesex, Vermont and open by appointment:

Watch Me Soar Graphic - 1. Design

Expectant parents and avid science fiction fans sought assistance for custom ways to bring geek culture to their little one, in this case a wall quote from Firefly: "I am a leaf on the wind. Watch me soar."


After initial discussions with the clients, we developed several options for font and lay-out.



They liked the look of a hand-rendered font and so we worked up options revolving around their initial choices.



The lettering layout shown in #1 was selected, and options for leaves and motion were considered.



Lastly, we looked at color and impact on motion design.
