YESCO Awarded First Place in 2018 Sign Design Competition by WSA
Ritz Classic Apartments
YESCO Custom Electric Signs received a 1st Place award in the design competition at the 2018 World Sign Associates (WSA) annual conference held in New York City. The award-winning design in the large free-standing category was produced for Ritz Classic Apartments in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Weidner Apartment Homes contracted with YESCO to refurbish the iconic Ritz Classic Bowling Pin sign that had stood in South Salt Lake since 1958. The challenge was to redesign the well-known landmark with the look of a classic 1950’s sign using modern technology. Due to its historical value, a variance was granted by the city to rebuild the sign to its original 90-foot height.
“The WSA Coolness competition is a great showcase of exceptional work from around North America. Voting is determined by peer ballot. YESCO receiving first place is an impressive feat since they are up against so many other premier sign companies,” said Grant Price, WSA executive vice president. The award was presented to Jeffrey S. Young, senior vice president of YESCO.

Announcing YESCO Creative Services
Compelling content is vital to get the most out of your digital sign. Many consider it to be more important than the sign itself. After all, how many times have you gone to a great movie and thought, “Wow…what a great screen!”
Sadly, many business owners don’t have the interest, desire, time or in-house skill to create compelling content. In reality, there is a particular skillset required to create great content for roadside digital signs, and it varies greatly from print design. To get it right, you need to properly consider contrast, layout, fonts, and size constraints along with viewing distances and city code restrictions.
Another key to maximizing your ROI is frequency. You must change your messaging often to keep eyeballs glued to your sign. That said, you just may not have the desire or bandwidth to learn a new piece of software.
Let YESCO Creative Services’ team of experienced designers make managing your sign easy. We know how to create compelling content and can program your display for you, all at an affordable cost. You’ll have new ads in a few days at most, and an ad playlist change is a quick call or email away. Call your representative to find out more.

The Beverly Center Renovation
Beverly Center Custom Sign
The Taubman Company engaged one of the world’s elite architectural firms, Fukas, to design the renovations for its elite retail center in the heart of Beverly Hills, California. The extensive $450 million exterior and interior project has transformed an aging shopping center into a modern and vibrant retail destination.
YESCO’s scope of work was one of our most diverse. YESCO collaborated with the Italian custom metal company, Metaltech who produced the mesh curtain panel that softens the exterior façade. YESCO was responsible for the fabrication of the highly finished painted steel support structures and installation of the metal panel and integrated lighting systems. On the interior YESCO was tasked with the fabrication and installation of the primary design feature; a river and lantern perforated and illuminated metal panel system that weaves through the property and defines openings between floor levels. YESCO also fabricated and installed all of the new exterior and interior displays and graphic elements throughout the property.
