OGDEN, UTAH (October 2023) – YESCO, the 103-year-old company known for creating, repairing, and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, recently completed the fabrication and installation of four new pylon signs and 33 light pillars on the main campus of Weber State University.
The pylon signs bookend north and south entrances to campus along Harrison Boulevard. The light pillars line Harrison Boulevard between the two entrances.
All told, the project comprised more than 4,000 man-hours over a 28-week-long period and included the addition of 3,800 white LEDs.
Made from aluminum and steel, each of the pylons features white LED light with purple vinyl overlay that borders a giant Gothic-style “W.” Additional white LED light borders the top of each pylon, encased in vinyl that makes it appear purple at night. The light pillars have a white LED section that lights up purple at night as well, and they have a separate white LED section that illuminates the letters WSU.
The fabrication and installation of the pylon signs and pillars also followed the original design produced by VCBO, the Salt Lake City- and St. George-based architecture firm.
“This project will welcome students, families and visitors to Weber State University with subtle-yet-beautiful signage depicting school colors and the inimitable school font,” said Matt Wren, senior account executive, YESCO. “In doing so, we have provided another client with an opportunity to enhance the visibility of their brand with distinctive visual flair.”
YESCO specializes in the manufacture of custom electric signs, sign maintenance and out-of-home advertising. In addition, YESCO operates sign and lighting service repair franchises throughout North America as well as a sign financing business. Thomas Young founded the company in Ogden, Utah, in 1920 after borrowing $300 from his father. YESCO began by offering wall painted advertisements, gold-leaf window lettering and coffin plates.
