The Making of a Neon Coca-Cola Sign

August 2nd, 2011

The work that went into this neon Coca Cola sign is amazing. It was designed and built for Piccadilly Circus in 1954. Seeing the craftsmanship of these old neon signs makes me really appreciate just how easy it create vector-based files nowadays. Long live any remaining signs as beautiful as this one was.

    “For Piccadilly Circus”, not “for the Piccadilly Circus” :)

    I would love to get my hands on the beautiful drafting of the sign. I used to love doing technical drawings by hand, and that one is a real masterpiece. Thanks for posting!

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always useful to read through articles from other authors and use something from their web sites.
