2019 Makers of Tomorrow

Our second annual presentation of the sign industry's next generation.
2019 Makers of Tomorrow

Beginning today and running through the rest of the week, Signs of the Times presents our second annual Makers of Tomorrow, a quintet of young signmakers who fashion striking sign projects and exhibit a burning passion for the industry.

Chosen from a strong field of nominations from across the US and Canada, these five Makers represent the best of the sign industry’s next generation: the indefatigable head of a custom sign company with a knack for advocacy; an original changing the design practices of a 100-year-old sign company; a grassroots handpainter whose talent matches his massive Instagram following; a graphic designer-turned signpainter inspired and educated by the old guard; and a young shop owner who broadened the fun he was having making products with a laser engraver.

The Five Makers

*Alex Perry, CEO, Right Way Signs (Chicago)

*Jaclyn Veasley, Senior Graphic Designer, National Sign Corp. (Seattle)

*Alex Kurakake, Owner, Smart Alex Signs (Huntington Beach, CA)

*Jennifer Konanz, Owner, Konanz & Co. (Calgary, AB, Canada)

*Greg Leaman, President & CEO, Leaman Signs (Mount Pearl, NL, Canada)
