“Maybe we weren’t meant to have a nice sign…” was one of our late night texts recently. We disagree and hope you do too. Long story very short:
We need a sign. A small sign. A creative sign. We have spent the last month waiting for companies to return our calls, laughing at the pricing, or writing emails ending in: “…sorry we’ll not be contacting you on any future project from our studio.” Sigh…
Here’s where you come in. View this as an RFP. A call for bids. A plea for ideas. An opportunity for something neat.
Below is our general idea for a gallery sign, to be wall-mounted, to be prominent, and gorgeous. Please take a look and if you’re interested, by no later than midnight, the day before Valentines Day (that’s next Wednesday, the 13th) please email us with a reasonably complete quote on the job of designing, creating and installing a sign. Include cost, timeline, materials, sketches, and inspiration. The ideas we have below are just that: ideas. Please be liberal, be creative, be crafty, and be local if possible. On Valentine’s Day, we will review the bids and announce our selection. In turn for the studio manager’s signature on a nice wide check made out to you, we’ll forever brag about our new, awesome sign and the artist / artists who created it. This is an open bid, not limited to individuals or businesses; large or small. A bottle of rye whiskey may or may not sway our opinion, just sayin’….

In our heads, we’ve been thinking industrial, distressed metal, bold, clean, textured, etc. We’re open to ideas of size, color, the whole text cut-through (though that’d be cool…) and simply need you to kind of read our minds and tell us what we want. You know us better than a company that excels in putting up a cloud-touching Taco Bell sign, yes? Yes.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fun stuff – thanks! And remember, bids are due next Wednesday by midnight Pacific time – ’cause we’ll be in California. Lucky us, lucky you.
