Thousand Oak Signs - Fitting in and Standing Out


If you've ever been to Thousand Oaks, you know that part of what makes it so charming is that everything has a similar look and feel. It's where Spanish architecture meets Western style, beautiful and beige. The city has regulations to make sure that this beautiful theme is preserved.

While part of what makes the city so beautiful is that everything has a similar look and feel, you'll still want your business sign to stand out. 

So, how do you go about standing out while fitting in? Here are 3 examples from Dave's Signs own galleries to demonstrate:

Use Dimension to Enhance Visibility

Check out this 3-Dimensional sign for American Eagle Outfitters. You can find it in the outdoor section of the Thousand Oaks Mall.

When you compare this to other Thousand Oaks signs, particularly within the mall, you can see how it fits in perfectly. The black metal sign is almost an exact match with the black metal of the mall's beautiful railing above it. 

What makes this sign stand out is that it reaches out over the walkway, catching attention from below and above. At night the letters are outlined by beautiful yellow backlighting, grabbing even more attention.

Compliment the Building's Architecture

This channel letter sign created for Farmer's Insurance in Thousand Oaks compliments the building’s architecture.

You've probably noticed how many commercial buildings are lacking proper signage; moments when you park your car and walk toward a building, you look around and hope to find your way. 

An appropriately sized sign ensures that your customers will never get lost. They'll feel confident they are in the right spot and taken care of from the moment they park. 

Illuminate Your Sign

One of the best ways to make sure that your sign stands out from other Thousand Oaks signs is to light it up. Check out this illuminated channel letter sign for Regency Theaters:

Day or night, if you're interested in seeing a movie you'll know where to go. This sign is so bright and large that it can be seen from incredible distances. If you weren't thinking of seeing a movie, you will be once you get anywhere near this theater.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
