Signs on High Rise. You need a really tall ladder

Signs for San Diego does some interesting installations. Recently we have done a couple of High Rise installs. These installs are all unique and take special study and preparation. There are the normal permits, but closing streets, working with different materials and mounting, and then the big issue, installing from the top rather than reaching the site from the ground.  In this case a downtown hotel: Moxy 

Moxy is a new Marriott International hotel. These target city visitors, younger, tech heavy guests that want to have a lobby they can hang out in.

Are you luck enough to have a Pylon Sign?

Posted by Frank Murch | Oct 25, 2018 10:00:00 AM

A Pylon signs are controversial.These are tall signs on poles. Often these are the first signs put up in In under developed areas, and areas visible from highways. Pylon signs are common for gas stations, malls and shopping centers. As the area develops and grows, these signs are often limited or eliminated. Cities often consider this type of sign a visual form of pollution. Cities are using the zoning laws to change character of the neighborhood. In most Coastal cities these are not permit-able as a new sign. However, they are effective and if you are lucky enough to have an existing (likely older) pylon sign, you have an advertising machine.
