“This is just the way the shop looks today,” Randy says. “It can look better, or it can look a lot worse. There are times when I just can’t stop to get it organized because I’m trying to get the work out. Vicky helps with that, though, and it frees me up for production.”

Designer at work: Randy Howe

Randy Howe’s shop, Getzum Exposure, is in the small town of Port Dover on the shores of Lake Erie. It’s a small town (population just over 6000) in an area surrounded by other small towns, about two hours south of Toronto.

Randy has been in the sign industry since high school and opened his first shop in 1986—in the early days of computer-aided sign making. As a sign designer, his roots are in the times before signs were made with the help of the computer.

“Even though I’m just about 100% digital today,” says Randy, “my first recollections of signs and sign design are from before the computer. I’m thankful for that. It sounds funny, but signs were different then.”
