Charlotte taproom Director of Brand Chris McClure and graphic artist Kortnie Emmons reached out from the brewery about some interesting projects for the interior and exterior. ey contacted a couple of other sign companies and no one knew how to do all the projects. I worked with Zack Hilyer, the brewery's facility director, to dive into elec- trical and installation needs. Always up for a challenge, I worked with the team at Modulex Carolinas and put some con- cept drawings and pricing together. The pole sign Burial wanted a vintage, vacuum-formed sign in keeping with a lot of the original '60s/'70s signs in neighborhood. I worked with Katie Waldrop at Diversified Signs in York, South Carolina, about tweaking some art to make this happen. Since they were doing the faces, we decided it best to have them do the job turn- key. Cabinets, LEDs and steel post could be test fitted before install. I also worked with Brace Sign Service out of Gastonia, North Carolina. Owners Brock Steel and Robert Flynn helped with the install. Since Charlotte required a licensed electrical contrac- tor for anything involving electricity, it was a perfect fit.
