What are the benefits of incorporating an LED neon sign into a creative space?

The pinnacle of internal branding for many, installing a custom LED sign can bring a wealth of benefits to your professional space. However, few companies are aware of the range of creative options available for their business.

With the market flooded with creative industries and shared or rented professional spaces, it can be incredibly difficult to mark out an area that is yours. And with remodelling or modifications off the cards, it’s often worth taking the time to review the choices available to you and find one that’s right for your unique needs.

So, here is our guide to some of the benefits (and key considerations) about adding a sign to your creative space. Starting with.

What is an LED neon sign?  

Popular since the 1900’s, conventional neon signs have been superseded by LED neon technology. These are small filament free bulbs that have a long shelf life and are incredibly bright when operating at full capacity. While individual LED bulbs may be small, putting a number of them in series can create highly detailed and bright illumination. Once highly expensive, technical innovation has massively brought down their cost – making them a viable and effective solution for all your signage needs.

Where can they be used?  

High-performance and robust, LED bulbs can be used in a variety of locations from external signage, individual rooms and corridors, to hybrid spaces. This makes them ideal for creative spaces, letting you mount them with ease and enjoying reduced running costs. They also run quietly, eliminating the tell-tale ‘hum’ that accompanies conventional neon signage.

What do I need to install one?  

A wall and socket. Lightweight and adaptable, neon signs can be installed on any wall or space that is able to support the weight of the sign. This allows them to keep a low running cost. These can be installed by yourself if you feel confident in mounting items to your wall or a professional if you are concerned about damage to your owned or rented property.

Can they help creativity?  

When it comes to professional creativity, few things are more inspiring than the space you are working in. Getting into a positive professional routine can be a massive help and our LED signs have been used by businesses, offices, freelancers and more to mark out their professional space. This can be through a bespoke design, a recreation of their internal branding and more – enabling you to ‘get in the zone’ and make a positive impact on clients and employees alike.

Can I create a custom design?  

Yes! One of the strengths of LED neon signage is the high-level of reliable customisation you can enjoy. This can range from your branding, slogans, images, and more – letting you dictate how you want to decorate your space. While there is no ‘one size fits all’ pricing model, talking through your design with your chosen provider will help you get a better understanding of your price point and what can be done to keep costs as low as possible without sacrificing quality.  

Are they expensive?  

No! While there is a cost involved with production of a bespoke sign, they are not as expensive as other forms of illuminated signage – with conventional neon signs coming in at a significantly higher price point than other conventional models.

What are some of the key benefits? 

While many individuals may decide on an LED design solely for aesthetics, picking one out comes with a number of benefits. These include, but are not limited to-

Increased Engagement: Adding LED signage to your creative space can be inspiring to your employees and help them feel part of a team. This also comes without any distracting glare, letting you install signage in your space without distraction.

Brand Consolidation: Depending on the type of sign you select; your imagery and design can help play a vital role in affirming and highlighting your brand. This can help raise your profile with visiting guests and form the cornerstone of your company’s professional identity.

Improved Atmosphere: Adding an LED neon sign to your space can be a focal point for your design and help set the tone for your space. Depending on the types of bulbs and colour schemes you choose, this can set the atmosphere for each room or help change it as needed.

Cost Effectiveness: Thanks to advancements in LED technology, a neon sign can be extremely cost effective to run and a price conscious addition to any professional creative space.

Long-Term Quality: Durable and easy to repair, once purchased, a LED neon sign has a significant shelf life and can be flexible if you decide to remodel or switch spaces. They will also endure the knocks and bumps of travel with ease – unlike conventional lit signage.

What should I think about before getting one? 

Even if you are 100% sure about the design and purpose of your LED neon sign, it is important to take some time to review your options and confirm that they are truly right for you. Consult your provider and this will allow you to create a unique design, review your brand presence, and produce an end-to-end aesthetic appearance that allows you to optimise your look.
