98 Years and Counting
Today we celebrate the dream of a young man, Thomas Young, who at age twenty-five started Thomas Young Signs with $300 borrowed from his father, George Young. This was March 20, 1920.
We celebrate the 98th anniversary of that event as we continue to strive to provide the most innovative, finest designed, engineered, built and maintained signs in the world. We celebrate the growth of our franchise program. As of early 2018 the company has awarded 162 territories across the Midwest, East Coast and Canada. YESCO Outdoor Media is one of the largest and oldest outdoor advertising companies in the Rocky Mountain West. We celebrate our longstanding commitment to providing our customers with signs and services of the highest quality and greatest value.
We celebrate the health of our beloved Tom Young Jr. Tom will celebrate his 90th birthday early next month.
We celebrate our employees. We continue to believe in the worth of the individual and are grateful to each of our employees. YESCO is truly a family business.
We will celebrate today by sharing a smile with our co-workers and remembering those who have gone on before as we look forward to our 100th birthday in just two years.
Thank you to all of our friends and customers.

Orleans St. building are coming down as the newspaper makes the move to renovated space at 30 N. Racine Ave.” — Chicago Sun Times

Old Ellsworth Brewing Company

This property is on the main intersection of a revitalization project in the Town Center of Queen Creek, Arizona. The sign designs were created to enhance and become a key visual aspect of this primary intersection, integrate with the aesthetic of the new downtown area, and support and establish a brand image consistent with the clients marketing and image plan.

Their 2D logo developed from images of old hand-painted brewery and tavern signage of times past were the inspiration for the multi-layered wall sign that included push through and routed copy, graphics, and halo illumination. Took the old school to new school!

This carried through to the monument sign design with routed copy and graphics, translucent inlay vinyl, and painted outlines of the copy. The shape, base, and depth of this display was design to anchor their image in the now upscale Downtown area.

The wall letters in white created a nice contrast to the brick wall during the day and white halo illumination at night provided an upscale look.
