Jason and Monique Marshall are lovely people. They are approachable and professional, tasteful and down to earth, caring and wise. I was immediately engaged by Monique’s style and business vision and decided within .30 milliseconds we were going to give them the most elegant lobby sign they could possibly imagine.
Their new office is exquisite. Rich tones of burgundy and cherry wood abound. It looks like they hired a very talented interior decorator, but that’s not the case. They just happen to have amazingly good taste and wield it with restrained opulence. Even though the space they created is luxurious and rich, it’s also quite comfortable and welcoming; just like they are. That’s what we wanted this lobby sign to be as well.
The lobby sign we would make for Marshall Financial Services would be as gold as the bars in Fort Knox and as elegant as the Burgundy signature that is her logo. We felt the key to making a powerful first impression through this signage would be in simplicity of design but using rich tones and reflective materials.
I have to say, “Mission accomplished”. This lobby sign is stunning. I only wish photos could really show how impressive this sign is. We used a brushed gold back plate that we further enhanced with another layer of gold spray. The gold plate acts to reflect the over head lighting and gleams on the wall. The clear front plate of acrylic allows the gold light to shine through, and the logo’s script lettering of burgundy and black floats effortlessly in the center of the piece. This is a lovely, lovely lobby sign. Almost as lovely as the Marshall’s themselves.
We were so pleased with the outcome of this custom project that we made a video of the “birth of this lobby sign”. Everything you see on the video was done in house; concept, design, fabrication, and installation.
More importantly the Marshall’s are thrilled with their new lobby sign. If you’re looking for some financial advice, call Marshall Financial Services at 714-541-4180.

Saddleback Business Park’s custom Lobby Sign by Focal Point Signs; one of our favorite types of signs to work with customers on are lobby signs. Partly because there is a tremendous sense of pride knowing that the first impression of an Office Building is often the Lobby Sign. It sets the tone and creates expectations of what the experience in the building will be. The Lobby Sign is an extension of the buildings’ personality and the companies’ brand. The sign can be lovely and solemn like a beautiful high-brow woman or fun and colorful like an exuberant child. Every Lobby Sign is its own custom, one of a kind creation. Like Michelangelo working on his David, we get completely entrapped in the creative process excitedly passing back and forth ideas on the materials we can marry to create the overall “theme” and feeling. Yes! Lobby Signs are a passion!! Let us render in Illustrator the object of our obsession. Give us aluminum and acrylic and let our hands begin to play the instruments of our trade! The panel saw, router, and flame polisher! Ah, the smell of substrate being molded to our very desire. Carpe diem!
On the, albeit, selfish side, it’s also just plain fun for us to work with Lobby Signs. On installation day the energy is palpable in the air. Employees find reasons to linger a little longer to watch the new creation go up. Everyone is happy. It’s like getting a new car, or new jewelry for the office walls! I am blessed to be in a trade that gives me and all of our employees a sense of pride and accomplishment. We actually get to see the end result of our labors, and know that for years to come our creation will grace the office lobby and like a silent stalwart, greet all who enter.
We recently had the privilege of making an astonishingly elegant Lobby Sign for Saddleback Business Park, and I have to say it really is the center piece of the office. The elegance is in the simplicity of the design and how well it works with surrounding colors. I thought it would be interesting for anyone considering a similar approach to their lobby sign to see the process, so we made this video. If you are looking for a new Lobby Sign and want to work with people who get excited about projects and really want to work with you, then give us a call at 714-204-0180.
I remember years ago sitting in a corporate meeting where our Trainer, Jack King, held up his business card and asked, “What is this?” Of course everyone in the room responded, “A business card” to which Jack replied, “Is it? Is it really?” Jack went on to make a poignant speech suggesting that we view our business cards as debit cards used to make withdrawals from the bank of our reputation.
In many ways your signage is an extension of your business card, and reputation too. What does your signage say about you? What would you like your signage to say about you? We recently completed a project for a very professional Real Estate Company which was just opening their office. They had a very clear vision of what they wanted to convey, not only through their interior design work (very elegant, very professional), but in their signage as well. We were delighted to have been selected to create and install this custom lobby sign and window graphics. Congratulations to Abe and his team at Landmark Real Estate on their grand opening of their new office located in the Cashkill Building at The Block at Orange, and we thank them for the opportunity to do this project.
