The cool kids of neon just proved that we know how to get down with the youth: we’re now officially on Snapchat. Mondo Neon’s Snap Story reveals what happens in the world of neon and will contain behind-the-scenes looks at blogging, video shoots, podcasting and even a guest appearance or two.
The process of making neon signs, first demonstrated in a modern form in December 1910 by Georges Claude, is actually a very durable and efficient form of light. Built to last, neon sign makers specialize in crafting complex designs - and this evolution has been propelled by the popularity of these incredible gas-filled, electrically charged tubes.
From your favorite movie quote to inside jokes and swoon-worthy wedding centerpieces, your neon sign should deliver a cohesive message while also showcasing your fabulous personality at the same time. Of course, the actual design you choose plays a major role in the overall impact, along with the font, which can easily capture your style and enhance the appearance of the entire neon sign.
Today it’s quite easy to wander over to your favorite local eatery and grab a variety of sushi rolls, a bowl of miso soup, or some steamed dumplings while admiring the mesmerizing glow from a nearby neon sign, but do you ever stop and think about where these everyday essential lighting wonders of the world came from?
