Clear Sign & Design has worked closely with the retail and commercial industry since our inception over 33 years ago. We are always looking for new ways to improve our client’s brand visibility by using the most cost effective and visually impacting marketing tool possible… SIGNS.

When we think retail, we think bold, creative designs, bright colors, and eye-catching materials. In this post-recession economy, no retailer can take foot traffic for granted. There is no more cost-effective way to help increase foot traffic and revitalize the impact of an aging property than properly designed signage.

Located on Sepulveda Blvd. near the Los Angeles International Airport, The Gateway Center was an antiquated 350,000 square foot business center that revitalized its image by adding nearly 12,000 square feet of prime retail space in 2011. Clear Sign quickly provided a magnificent multi-tenant pylon sign built from a combination of materials including Aluminum, Zinc, and Acrylic with bold Orange accents.

Fast-forward to early 2103, The Gateway Center decided to add signage for the rest of the property with the help of local design firm Beck & Grabowski. With a combination of a large multi-tenant sign, larger address numbers, smaller way-finding signs, and bold contrasting colors, this once bland property now boasts some of the best eye catching signage in the area.

In the end, a sign design is only as great as its execution. A well conceived plan can be easily ruined by an inexperienced fabricator, or by one who cuts corners on fabrication and installation just to save a few bucks. The truth is, there are more ways to build something wrong than there are ways to build something right. For an inexperienced buyer, this is a very difficult distinction to make.

At Clear Sign & Design, we surround ourselves with employees who share our quest for perfection. When the final product is delivered and installed, the pride we put into our work is self-evident.

Clear Sign & Design has many tools to help your property grow in visibility and distinction. Give us a call today at 760.736.8111 to find out how we can help separate your property from the crowd.
