Industry and Commerce Does Not Mean Mass-Production
When I hear the terms ‘industrial’ (or industry) and ‘commerce’ I tend to think of large-scale businesses like car manufacturers, white goods manufacturers, or high tech firms like Samsung or Apple and so on.
‘Industry’ has become a catch-all term for the mass production of items for a global market. That’s a real pity because it doesn’t mean that, or at least, some uses of the word don’t mean that. Looking it up on dictionary.com one of the usages of the word is: ‘systematic work or labor’.
So that’s what got me thinking about this – our work is all about bespoke signage, we design each sign individually for clients, whether we produce one of them or hundreds of them. In reality, we have a ‘systematic’ flow of work from design stages through manufacture to QC.
Another use of the term is ‘any general business activity; commercial enterprise’, a category which again our small business falls into. It’s a business, we not here to lose money after all are we?
We don’t just make one kind of signage for industries here, we design for anyone who wants signage. We can design all kinds of signs, all shapes and sizes, for all different purposes: if you want something making into a sign, it’s a pretty good bet we’ve either done it, or we can do it, remember that in the future if you want a sign!
