Designing a Small Studio – Part 13, Sign Design (+ a favorite product)



With the studio build nearing completion, we explore ways to incorporate the building concept into something as simple as a sign. I also discuss a favorite product of mine (rare earth magnet cup sets) which we used to mount it to our barn door. It’s one with a surprising variety of everyday uses (I list a few in the video).
