Follow-up: David and Robin McDonald
Arroyo Grande, California
Posted on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016
Robin and David McDonald were first featured in the July/August 1993 issue of SignCraft. They opened Avila Sign & Design in 1985 with the plan to build the business on custom sign work with an emphasis on design. That approach has kept them busy in their small town on the California coast, about midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. SignCraft caught up with Robin at the shop one busy afternoon
So Avila Sign & Design has a new home since the last feature in SignCraft.
Yes—we recently moved to a new shop. So the biggest change here has been the move from Grover Beach, the next town to our east, to Arroyo Grande. We’ve been building and getting adjusted to the new space for the past couple of years. The shop is about 2,000 sq. ft. and is next to our home. We have a log cabin near the beach, which is pretty unique, and it makes a really great sign shop setup.
