When Dan Mainzer called me for his new business in town I was eating my tuna on a mediterranean sauce: olives, capers and tomato sauce as my grandmother's recipe. He asked me to reproduce his new logo, made by Zacc Pollitt, on a rounded wooden board to be hung on the front of his new fish and seafood store. 3 weeks of detailed wood carving and painting process gave to Nosara the sign for this new fish sale shop. So I called my mom to ask her other grandma's recipes.

Working on this beautiful sign was a challenge putting together wood, stainless steel and LED light system controlled by tablet via wi-fi. Brandon Richardson asked me to realize something that had to catch eyes of people and respect image of his Realty Company. Design came from an idea of Nathan Jackson, part of the team of Wanderlust Realty. 250 hours of work on projects, wood, steel and LED adding 6 full days of installation was my fine and detailed work. So proud of this project I'm always happy to work on big sign!

Heart and passion for mountainbike and surf bring Ricardo Moraga to open this little but powerfull shop in the north of Playa Guiones. He asked me to give to the shop more visibility and create signs to better advertise his business on the road. I worked on a front shop carved and painted wood sign reproducing the deteiled logo and on a metal structure to support 4 small double sided carved and painted wood signs with all the business info. In this project colors were the goal. If you see around a cyclist muddied is probably Ricardo!

When Dan knew me he followed in love of my wood work.. He actually was the first person who belived me with wood signs in Playa Guiones. I redesigned the logo putting in a nice shape for the big wood sign that he got on the shop entrance in the main street of Playa Guiones. If you see a yellow big wheels bicycle riding fast on the beach, that’s come from Playa bike! Never stop Dan!
