the Queen City Project

The CoSign project is an experiment in creative place-making. It pairs independent businesses with designers and fabricators to fill a neighborhood with beautiful new signage. The initiative’s first foray took place over the course of 6 months in Northside, culminating with a grand Black Friday reveal.

CoSign is a brand new artistic and economic initiative that debuted in Northside on Black Friday 2012 and is poised for implementation all over the country.

Connecting small businesses with artists and professional sign fabricators, CoSign was created by a partnership between the Haile/US Bank Foundation, Little Things Labs and the American Sign Museum to provide a packaged process in which gorgeous new signage is designed, fabricated and displayed. These installations help to create a diverse aesthetic bond which beautifies Northside’s Hamilton Avenue business district. We love what CoSign did with Northside, and we’re obviously excited to see who’s next.
