Over the past few months I've worked with Matt Regan, "my sign guy" as I've called him, to conceptualize, design and create a few new interior and exterior signs for my Edgartown jewelry studio. I have been fortunate to have Matt's help on these important projects.
I first met Matt at a local business class and soon discovered that he is truly a sign dork. And I this with love and appreciation for him and the work that he does. He is truly passionate about signs, he even attends sign conventions- seriously! Matt is excited by traditional hand painted wooden signs (like he made for me) yet he is also totally hip and up to date on the latest in online marketing, branding and social media. An experienced marketing and branding professional, he's got decades of experience at real big-city marketing firms, with an understanding of Vineyard businesses and how to work with local companies. He even helped me navigate the town of Edgartown's sign rules and regulations so I didn't have to read that novel myself.
In fact, if you are in need of signage, brochures, banners, flyers or any marketing assistance, I highly encourage you to get in touch with him. He's recently launched his own company, Signworks, please check it out. Thanks for all of your work, Matt!
