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:

The Road Trip, the Weathervane, and Community


Part of the fun of working with a very loose community of artists is that one member can randomly stumble on something, interpret it, and pass it on to another member.

Pooks was out traveling the other day - as she often does - and happened to see an object in passing - a weathervane that is creepy, bizarre, and wonderful. All at the same time.

She sketched what she remembers and passed it on to me ('Ruly) with the thought of perhaps building something for Etsy.  I love not only her idea, but also the frenzied insanity of her pencil drawing and want to find a way to blend that in. Hmm...
