2013 USSC Sign Design Competition Winners Announced

Best of Show: Mack Bachman, Golden West Advertising, for Metro Express Car Wash. Best of Show: Mack Bachman, Golden West Advertising, for Metro Express Car Wash.

The judging is in, and once again, the 2013 USSC Sign Design Competition demonstrates that the members of the United States Sign Council (USSC) are highly creative designers—coming up with some of the most innovative ideas in sign design throughout the country.

The USSC Sign Design Contest is one that judges real signs—signs that have been ordered by a customer and built to specification and signs that are being viewed by the general public day after day. And looking over the many entries that USSC received this year, it appears that USSC members are producing some outstanding signs.

The thirteen winners will all be featured in the organization’s 2014 USSC Sign Design Calendar, which will be mailed to all USSC members by early- to mid-November. This year’s “Best in Show” (pictured, upper left) was awarded to Mack Bachman, designer at Golden West Advertising in Boise, Idaho for Metro Express Car Wash (which also won First Place for “Freestanding Sign – Internal Illumination).

The USSC would like to send special thanks to this year’s judges who took time out of their busy schedule to serve the industry—John Maxman of JHM Signs in Alpha, New Jersey, and Adam Yorston of Yorston and Associates.

All first-place winners can be viewed in the slideshow below.
