Founders of Fairchild Semiconductor, circa 1960
In the late 1950’s Ed Moran was an acclaimed but starving artist who founded one of the Valley’s first sign shops, on The Alameda in Santa Clara. What was called back then the Santa Clara Valley was mostly made up of apricot orchards, more than a decade before from assuming its current-day moniker the “Silicon Valley”. His company served some of the first prominent local tech companies at the time: IBM, HP and Fairchild Semiconductor (some of his handy work can be seen in the photo on the left behind the company founders), and developed long-lasting relationships with the early developers who built out the valley: Trammel Crow Company, Spieker Properties and Lincoln Property Company, all customers we continue to do business with to this day. Ed’s son Danny grew up working in the family business and in 1993 took ownership, renaming the company Corporate Sign Systems. For many years Corporate Sign Systems worked on the ‘build’ side of the business, mostly through outside designers and consultants. In 2016, for their love of art and yearning to bring the company back to its art-based roots, Danny and his wife Nancy launched LUX Create, an in-house design and art studio. The creation of the new ‘design + build’ model resulted in creative, efficient, and value driven projects for our customers.
Today, Corporate Sign Systems and LUX Create employ some of the industries’ top creative thinkers and artisan fabricators in the business. Our two teams work side by side under the same roof, in collaboration with leading artists from around the world, delivering some of the largest, most unique signage & wayfinding, EGD and private and public art projects locally, nationally, and internationally.
