    Just installed these at the Perot Museum here in Dallas. I guess they wanted the subtle look. White wall with white letters.

    I know I'm in the wrong business for someone that doesn't like heights, but it's done at least. The install was about three stories up due to the open area directly beneath it.

    Included a couple of more pictures of the building itself just because it's cool. :)

    Looks good but is going to be hard to see for anyone not knowing it is there.
    What is the model of that man lift with the tracks?
    It looks like it could fit in as part of the building decor.

    Love subtle. with letters that large, they wont miss it even if its the same color.

    I can never sell customers on subtle. I'd love to do a full 3d sign in all one color and let the shadows and highlights define it.

    And did you find it especially stressful that you had to swing over top of the stairwell? LOL

    That's a really interesting building.
    I like that they didn't clutter it with in-your-face signs.
    Love....Jill

    It's the Teupen LEO 13 GT (link). Again, I'm not much for heights, but it was a pretty smoothly operating piece of equipment. The only thing I didn't love was the front of the bucket has kind of a permanent lean downward and isn't adjustable.

    Thank you, Craig!

    The joke is probably obvious, but I'm missing it lol. Unless you're referring to the vent...?

    Yes. lol...

    Eyes forward, eyes forward, eyes forward... :covereyes:

    It's a very busy building lol...thanks.

    Agreed. I'm kind of liking the choice they made to go with the white-on-white the more I look at it. Kind of a classy move to have their name but not right in your face.

    The floor indicators are a little more in your face though...they're about 8' tall white vinyl.

    The building is definitely a modern design but I think it looks good compared to what they could have done to it. You also got to remember this a museum so the building is also going to be apart of the attraction. I honestly look at the building and am inspired by the engineering involved to make this building look like this.

    As for the sign, I like how it looks with the mono tone look. Simple sign for a complex area. If you did to much to it, in my opinion, it would be too much and overpowering for the space. Good job on the sign and install.

    It is funny how many of us have a fear of heights in this profession. 20' up a latter and a slight breeze I feel like I am hugging the ladder. Put me in a bucket with harness I am fine. No harness, I am nervous as hell. Even saying this, I have been skydiving, bungee jumping, and cliff jumping.
