    New Member Profile: Clear Sign & Design, Inc.

    It has been quite the journey from small start-up in 1981, when owner Steve Weddell started Clear Communications, as a small design and marketing firm compared to what the company is capable of today. In the years since, Clear Sign & Design has systematically built on Weddell’s original vision of what a custom sign company should be, creating a dynamic, “client-centric” culture based on collaboration and integrity.

    In 1997, we incorporated and refocused our firm’s brand to better reflect the new direction it was headed. Thus came the
    company’s new name … Clear Sign & Design Inc. In the years since, Clear Sign & Design has systematically built on Steve’s
    original vision of what a custom sign company should be, creating a dynamic “client-centric” culture based on collaboration and integrity. Our growth has continued by carefully building a team of talented individuals who share our passion for excellence, and that same level of passion continues today. Since 1981 we’ve been involved in tens of thousands of projects, all the while learning, growing and adding to our capabilities and skill sets. Our culture thrives on innovation and our thirst for perfection fuels our relentless passion for learning.

    “Being involved and proactive within our industry is an important aspect of our culture” says Clears Signs General Manager Gabe Griffin. Already active within the ISA and WSA, and contributing to multiple technical committees between the two, it only made sense for us to join the CSA to broaden our area of resource and continue to stay on the cutting edge of technology, industry trends and code / governmental related issues.”

    “There is no denying the tremendous impact and investment the CSA has made to better the business climate for all of us – and we are proud to help support the cause moving forward as we strengthen this industry from the inside out.” ~ Gabe Griffin, Clear Signs General Manager
