This huge neon sign in St. Louis is a stunning 27 feet tall and we won First Place/Best in Show for Internally Illuminated Outside Design sign in the prestigious Signs of the Times Magazine juried contest. I wanted the colors to be wild and bright, like a carnival. Since the indoor mini golf place has a magician theme, I put the man and woman in dressy clothes and magician’s top hats with a red magician’s cape.
With animation and neon flashing on and off in sequence, it looks like the players are putting a golf ball and that it moves into the hole and disappears. The cape is also moving back and forth and the letters in MAGIC are flashing on in sequence. It lights up the street in the vibrant Delmar Loop arts and entertainment district.
