S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • November 2015 • 59 "It's very cool when you can take a two-dimensional object on a piece of paper and make it a 3D living and breath- ing thing," Ziglin says. Who's Buying? Why do customers come back for business, or better yet, come to you in the first place? Cox says, "Most of our customers rely on our design experience and award-winning reputation, that they feel it's best to let the artist take the reins. We prefer this approach, as it gives us 100 percent design freedom, but always welcome their ideas or any reference material they may provide." For Ziglin, the process is a little dif- ferent. In the Ziglin Signs' world, routed work is just part of the experience. The shop also completes printed graphics, electrical signs and more. Jack-of-all- trades is truly a suitable title. "That's where our niche has helped us the most," Ziglin explains. He says that the sparkplug project came from a much more involved job with brake pads. And that customer started out in the vehicle wraps arena. "They came in one day to look at some artwork we were doing for one of their customers—we were doing a wrap for them—and they saw some 3 D stuff we had on our shelf and asked, 'You guys do this?' That was it." Routed signage by nature is typically a unique type of offering. For that reason, it continues to be in demand and requires a lot of attention. Both sign makers and customers take this kind of work seri- ously because, in the end, it strengthens both of their businesses. "Most of our work isn't cookie-cut- ter," Cox says. "We have an international clientele that is very enthusiastic with the work we specialize in. Therefore we try to keep our work unique and fresh, so it doesn't become boring and stale—or cookie-cutter." These types of signs are a thing of beauty. They are original. They provoke thoughts and questions. They tell a story.
