Pub sign

Still a work in progress but happy with the results so far. The customer left the creativity and design to me but asked for mountains on it. Feel free to edit and make your own. Thanks for looking.

It came out pretty good. I like the shape - I just downloaded it to save for later.

If I may, I'd like to offer a wee bit of "design" advice , for future reference.
We all start out ( me included) taking nice shapes we like from one sign & trying to fit the elements of another sign into the space. It's usually an exercise in frustration.
Generally, it's simpler & faster to lay out the elements you want in your sign, place them where you want them (appropriately sized) & THEN build a shape to fit. COWBOY1296, you pulled it off nicely this time, but keep this in mind for future signs,
I do dimensional signs full time, & one of my biggest challenges is when someone comes to me with shape restrictions. They invariably don't get my best work ....

as a rule signs are not what i do, but that said i am no sure i fully understand you. I know that you can overload a sign with to much info. but in this case the friend who wanted it dictated in the end how to lay it out.

COWBOY, my reply wasn't intended for just you, just a bit of information for folks in general.
I guess it's hard to explain.
