About A


We make the complex clear with good design and no-nonsense language.

The Opportunity:

The Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation was searching for a platform to enhance economic activity and vibrancy in Greater Cincinnati neighborhood business districts, while leveraging the creative talent and resources of individuals from within the community. The foundation was also looking for a way to work with the American Sign Museum to expand their outreach into neighborhoods, and to create an infrastructure to train the next generation of local signmakers.

The Method:

CoSign paired local business owners with local artists/designers and local sign fabricators to design and install a critical mass of unique, hand-crafted storefront signage in Cincinnati's Northside neighborhood, an area seeing significant reinvestment and growth. 

The Result:

Over the course of five months, CoSign engaged 52 local artists and designers in the development of 144 unique sign proposals for 19 Northside businesses. CoSign rewarded 11 artists with a monetary stipend for their sign designs, educated them on the entire process of sign design, permitting, fabrication and installation and provided them the opportunity for their work to be displayed in a prominent public space.

The Lessons:

  • Participation shifts perception

  • Invest in individuals

  • Innovation is a cross-disciplinary sport

  • Compensate connectors

  • Legacy is not a building with your name on it

  • Scale changes focus

  • Provide frameworks for dreaming

  • Let experts be experts
