Makers of Tomorrow: Where Are They Now? Eric Linquist of Ramsay Signs

In the case of Eric Linquist, right where he was when he was named one of Signs of the Times’ inaugural Makers of Tomorrow in 2018. Linquist still works at Ramsay Signs (Portland, OR), though his role has shifted from that of a department-to-department rover.

Over the past two years, he’s pushed himself to learn different 2D and 3D CAD software. “It’s challenging, but I have picked up some great skills and tricks, and we have been able to create some cool signage with 3D parts,” he said. “I have also learned how to do neon layout and have become quite proficient at it.” Linquist intends for his designs to shorten fabrication times and to leave “less math work” for the shop’s sign builders.
