Noble Signs is a Brooklyn-based design studio specializing in hand-painted and neon signage and floor to ceiling brand design.
Founded by David Barnett and Mac Pohanka in 2013 out of an appreciation for classic New York City signage(now scarce), Noble represents a new approach to a traditional craft. Fusing art, contemporary design, and technology with time-honored techniques-- including brush-lettering, gilding, and neon bending-- Barnett and Pohanka are bridging the heritage of the art form with a thorough understanding of today's realities.
As proud students of this lost trade during a resurgence of interest in the history and practice of handmade signage, Noble Signs offers a unique service-- design, signage, and branding-- with a grasp on real businesses with local needs. Combined experience in publishing, illustration, fabrication, publicity, fashion, film, and art allows the Noble team to offer a hands-on, floor-to-ceiling approach that has yielded results for numerous businesses across Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Noble Signs brings a uniquely artistic and customized experience for their clients and takes genuine pride in unified design and quality execution in the style and function of the work.
