Any business needs to be recognized by its customers and potential new ones.
Weather you have complete branding campaign in place or you just need a facade for your small business, we can work with you!
Angies List. Indianapolis, Indiana
The idea here was to create an interesting mural that stands alone, yet hints of the business that it represents. A sign this big needs to pass strict zoning rules and regulations. Words advertising your business must be 20% or less of the entire space, so a sign can not take up an entire wall. Art however is wide open, there are no size restrictions. We thought the pegboard of tools in most dad’s garages would be relatable to everyone, And would allude to the business within. Angie’s list connects you to repair men, contractors, and other service professionals, (the guys with the tools). Sadly Angies list was bought out and this building no longer housed the business. Thankfully it is still a great mural that speaks to people, so no need to paint over it; as it is now a local landmark!
Posh Petals Indianapolis, Indiana
This used to be a white brick storage warehouse. Our dear friends opened the business and needed to do something that would put their business on the map, as they say. Using the architectural detail of four inset panels on the side of the building, we painted one huge poppy. Each with it’s own bright color pop-py out against the rich earth background, that says flowers.
We then we added the Posh Petals logo prominantly on the side and front of the building. Also tying the front and side together is the two tone green and magenta color scheme. A Damask pattern then hand painted on the awnings. Posh Petals continue to be a thriving business and one of our local landmarks!
Agrarian, Homestead Supply
This is an example of a customer wanting a sign made of an existing Logo. This sign was hand painted onto a light weight and durable sign board.
For an accent we created a hen, two chicks and two bees made from wooden slats.
Gallery Pastry Shop
Gallery Pastry Shop
This mural is cleverly camouflaging a walk in freezer built out onto the courtyard at the gallery. Because who doesn’t want to have giant Monarchs joining you for crepes and mimosas?!
Cornerstone Tasting Room
This iconic restaurant and building was in desperate need of a face lift. Color consultation started the process here. The business owners wanted to stay in a familiar palette, so using some of the existing colors and adding a few new shades, we were able to accent the arctitectural features of the building.
The result here was the friendly and approachable, neighborhood vibe that our client was looking for.
Erin Young Designs
This client wanted a visible but understated sign for the outside of her business. With a sign, it’s important to say a lot in two seconds. Clean and concise it tells you what’s inside.
This exciting business has limited space for signage. because of this easy one story access painting directly on the building was the way to go.
Large scissors are painted on the front door……Upholstery get it?
When Visiting Home Room Just look for the Scissors on the front door.
Having a landmark like this on your front door really makes it easy for your customers to find you!
small boutique, small signs; big impact
Gallery Pastry shop
Logo painted on the building with understated illustration
Mass Ave Toys
This nostalgic toy store needed iconic characters to welcome customers to the store.
For this doggy daycare and grooming salon, we created an image for the side of their building, Starting with the existing logo, we surrounded it with happy playing dog silhouettes. The business owner did not want bright colors but a sophisticated palette of soft green with deep blue gray, black and white.
Plenty lifestyle and gift shop is a fantastic place to find special and unique thank yous and treats for yourself. This signage was created out of palette wood to reflect the vibe of the funky items inside.
Hand Painted Lettering!!!
This hand painted lettering will last for years longer than a printed sign. It was precisely painted with high quality exterior latex paint.

This Building has seen many business incarnations come and go. And so were the signs painted on it’s exterior. We deciphered a few old ghost signs, or billboards painted or the former business owners. Recreating what was believed to be a Quaker oats billboard, we created ads for a few of those former tenants. Henry’s bee keeping supply, E.P. Walker candy company and triple F Coffee.
another Ghost sign
This iconic pizza chain has a new store in the old movie theatre in Vincennes Indiana. We painted their sign on the building as if it were a revived ghost sign so to feel like an original part of the town’s history.
