When investing in new signage, who do you want to paint your sign? You want an artistic, creative and experienced professional sign painter of course.
That’s Mike Fisher, our new sign painter. Mike has been in the sign business for years and I’m delighted he’s joined our sign fabrication team. He’s a great team player. And he has the level of sign painting proficiency we look for when we recruit craftsmen to join our sign company.
Creativity is in Mike’s DNA. According to Mike, “Growing up, my father and I restored old cars together. It started when I was about 12 years old. That experience carried over into my career in the sign business. I’ve been running paint departments and used to be directly involved in neon fabrication. Over the years, I’ve built on those sign skills.”
It’s not overstating things when Mike says his whole life is art, music and making things. He’s driven by being around other talented, creative people who inspire him, making him a great fit for the Sign Effectz culture.
Mike spends a good amount of time thinking about design. When it comes to great signage, “the big thing is design and construction. It’s got to be fabricated well. When I was an art student, I got interested in design, and it’s been a big factor in my life. I look at it a little more critically than most people probably.” His favorite? That would be the Milk Can Hamburgers and Custard sign.
When he’s not at work, you’ll find Mike pinstriping and working on improving his hand lettering. He paints all sorts of things, like motorcycles and guitars to name a few. He also illustrates by hand and plays several musical instruments.
