Bizzell Design

Signage is what has given Bizzell Design the reputation of an industry leader. Our ability to blend construction methods, materials and graphic design into beautiful sculptural elements helps you to create “instant” image and brand identity. With all of our projects, we are very careful to research theme, history, study the architecture and create a graphic language that adds to the character of the streetscape. We are experts at wayfinding and create detailed maps that guide visitors to area features and amenities.

We understand the powerful effect a well planned streetscape can have. We think beyond the sticks and bricks and provide architectural elements that flow into street furniture, lighting and signage to create a sense of place.

The scope of our services include:

  • Brand & Identity
  • Signage & Wayfinding Programs
  • Streetscape & Storefront Design
  • Entryway, Gateway & Monuments
  • Lighting - Sculpture
  • Branded Mixed Use Communities
