This is a sign for the lobby of a hair salon. All their rooms have a funky 50's-60's feel. The lobby had random squares painted on the walls in colors matching the logo. The whole place has a light and fun atmosphere.

The available wall space and the existing decor inspired the design of the background. The logo and its colors were merely to be translated to glass. I chose "smalti" for the letters. The extra thickness in addition to their lively irregular surface gives a wonderful contrast to the flat tiles used on the background.
