Asheville’s Urban Trail Interpretive Sign

Asheville’s Urban Trail Interpretive Sign

Recent sign designed, engineered and fabricated in collaboration with @giganticavl, @chukkb & @allegraasheville with and for the @cityofasheville and @avldowntown as part the Urban Trail project.

Feeling grateful for the opportunity to help honor the legacy and genius of architect Raphael Guastafino. If you don’t know who that is, look him up. Much respect is due.

You can find it in front the Basilica of St. Lawrence, right by the Love Asheville mural which was the first project I did with Scott Smith a year ago.

I’m pretty proud of this one and what we’ve accomplished in this year in general.

Onward!

Custom Sign Design in Asheville

Custom Sign Design in Asheville

This was the first sign I designed for @giganticavl when we started teaming up last year. Always fun to play with double sided asymmetry.

It’s taken a little longer than the typical project to fulfill due to permitting hurdles and fabricator foibles. But we got it done and we’re all happy with how it turned out. Shout out to @chukkb for helping save the day with some last minute plasma cutting.

What I love about sign design is the blend of disciplines. Form and function. Architecture, construction, information design, graphic design, way finding, experiential design, typography… They all come together on a project like this. Lots to explore and play with. Never a dull day.
