Announcing the 2017 USSC Sign Design Contest Winners

The United States Sign Council (USSC) is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s USSC Sign Design Contest. These honorees were judged the best of the best when it comes to the top-notch creative signs that are being designed and fabricated by sign makers today.

The USSC Sign Design Contest is an annual event that identifies and recognizes signs that demonstrate excellence in client identification, creative graphic expression, and a combination of materials and/or techniques. Hundreds of entries submitted from across the country—and even the globe—were grouped into twelve distinct categories and judged on three criteria: the submission’s overall appearance, its effectiveness, and its originality.
