The sign is beautiful. We used to live in Wilmington. Now we’re in Tewksbury, but I miss Wilmington. :slight_smile:

Yeah, “wow!” is right! You show excellent choices in the design, font choice, layout and use of white space. (Is graphic design your chosen profession?) :grinning:

@Jules - yes, I’m a graphic designer by trade ;-). I spent days searching through fonts trying to find the “right” one lol. The glyph options on this one is what sold me. Thank you for the kind words :blush:

@GrooveStranger - I accessed the alternate swoosh glyphs through the Adobe Illustrator interface when I was designing it.
