“I have a fascination with the unusual things,” says Redgie Adams. “I don’t like to do the run-of-the-mill stuff. It just doesn’t excite me. Fortunately we’ve got our own little niche, and we have customers who want our kind of work.” For close to 50 years, Redgie has been turning out creative signs and graphics from his Arkansas shop.

He’s carved out a market for his brand of unique projects by doing everything from store and restaurant interiors to displays and custom furniture. Eventually the out-of-the-ordinary became the ordinary work at his two-man shop, which sits beside his home in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
