The sign, graphics and visual communications industry offers great careers for young professionals!
Industry employees can earn above average pay for their work, and companies are hiring! As older workers retire from long careers in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry, industry leaders are concerned about replacing workers in both skilled and management positions.
ISA recognizes talented young professionals in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry who represent the next generation of industry leaders thorugh the ISA Elite program.
Here's a profile of Eric Linquist, ISA Elite class of 2016, that was recently featured in ACTE's Technique's magazine.
“I first realized I wanted to be a sign maker in high school when I took manufacturing engineering classes. I loved that I can help a business express artistically what is on the inside—on the outside, through the creation of their sign. Everyday, I feel inspired looking up at the old signs hanging around the shop and think about how they were made by people like me.” —Eric Linquist, Sign Maker, Ramsay Signs, Portland, OR
Eric was also featured in the Sign of the Times magazine, in their Makers of Tomorrow series!
Eric is just one example of a dynamic employee in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry.
Stay tuned... we're planning more features soon!
