You may have noticed that we revamped our logo into a Neon font. It was all in preparation for an amazing project that I want to tell you about – Greenpointers Neon Sign Documentary.
We decided to get a badass NEON sign, which we can take to all of our events and markets, a sign that reflects who we are and what we believe in – local MADE IN NYC craftsmanship – and of course document the process from start to finish with the direction of the talented Miguel A. Rodriguez (my best friend in the entire world!)
Our Neon Sign Documentary will star Robbie Ingui of Artistic Neon, a 2nd generation Neon Sign Maker. This guy is super talented, hilarious and has thee best NY accent ever! Not only will we film him making our sign and teaching us about the process, but we will also interview his father (in upstate NY) and Thomas Rinaldi, who wrote the amazing book New York Neon to learn about the history of Neon Sign Making and how it has created a unique visual landscape here for the past 100 years.
If you think this project rules, then please consider making a donation to our Kickstarter Fundraiser, which launches today and ends on 11/10/2013.
Our goal is to raise $3000 to create this short documentary and there are many awesome rewards for funding – including rice balls.
