Under the Sea

These interior casino displays were created for The Isle Casino - Pompano Park in Pompano Beach, FL. The casino features a high-end tropical underwater theme, so the displays needed to convey that idea throughout; from subject matter and shape design to color palette and finishes.

Our incredibly skilled craftsmen were able to capture the flowing grace of the tapering compound curves with shaped aluminum and a ground pattern under translucent candy paint finishes. The great tropical leaves were made from formed glass with solid steel armatures, and were attached to rotators so that downward-directed spotlights dapple the customer in an always changing, soft, blue and green tinted light as they play their favorite game. The abstracted exotic fish, dolphins and seahorses, smooth and sleek, stand out from the jumble of forms flowing around them, while at the same time allowing them to sink back into the overall form, when taken in as a whole, much as they do in life.

From design to installation, these displays are an amazing collaborative feat of form, finish, lighting and mechanics, and a pleasure to be a part of. Chris Mohan, Designer, YESCO Las Vegas @rt.flackfize

‘Lighting up Las Vegas’: YESCO celebrates over 100 years in business

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — YESCO, the company behind many of Las Vegas’ iconic, glittering signs is celebrating more than a century of being in business and helping shape the image of Las Vegas.

A new exhibition opened Thursday in the Arts District, showcasing YESCO’s colorful history dating back to the early days of Las Vegas. The exhibition was originally planned to open in 2020 for YESCO’s 100th birthday, but COVID had other plans in mind. The company is now 102 years old.

The exhibit, put together with the LVCVA’s News Bureau, the Neon Museum, and Nevada Humanities, examines the history and impact of YESCO on Las Vegas, from early neon signs on Fremont Street in the 1930’s, to the mid-century signs on the Las Vegas Strip, to today.

YESCO was founded back in 1920 as one of the earliest companies in the West licensed to manufacture neon signs. The company’s signs have been described as “monumental advertising” of their day. Behind each sign — like the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” from decades ago or the more recent towering gateway arches in front of the Strat — there’s a colorful story involving the men and women who made it all possible...
