Recent work – gym graphics – Corona del Mar High School

Inside the gym of Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach (in Orange County CA) – alma mater school mural graphics, along with the school mascot, the Sea King. Underneath the main graphics is a listing of donors – every member of the 2016 senior class.

This is digitally printed and computer cut vinyl, which can work well on interior wall applications like this. Thanks to Corona del Mar High School for the opportunity to help.

Graffiti Test (video) — Southern California Custom Sign Shop – Big City Signs


Demonstration of removing graffiti from a vinyl film laminated with Concept 108 Tedlar Anti-Graffiti film. Graffiti sample had been on the film for about 2 weeks, and is removed with the proper solvent. I try three solvents as a test.

Recent work – Promenade at Downey – THE VULTEE ARCHIVES AND HISTORY MUSEUM

Recently Big City was given the task of reproducing the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation logo on the building front of an upcoming museum. The Promenade at Downey retail development in Downey (near Los Angeles, California), was built on property that was used by this company in Downey’s rich history in the Aerospace industry.

The project included making the logo look like it had been weathered and aged – in a “ghost sign” style. Got to love that corrugated metal, too. Here are some progress photos, and the final result.

First, a beautiful tile floor logo that remains inside the building – this is what the project was based on:



On the outside of the building, then, here is how our instant-aged logo developed:





After everything was finished, I went back and got this photo:
