How does Neon work?

How does Neon work?

  Neons play a significant role nowadays. They are visible in the streets of big cities, small towns and villages. These neon lights can take the form of artistically curved shapes and letters. They add a colourful, glowing effect to each item that is made of them. A glowing logo, banner, sign on a restaurant, cinema or clothing store attract the attention of passers-by and encourage them to use the services or make pur-chases. Neon lights are an eye-catching idea that has been perfect for the advertis-ing industry from the very beginning. The beginnings of the neon career The very word "neon" is derived from the word "neos" and means "new gas". Neon occurs naturally in the atmosphere, but in negligible amounts. Neon gas was dis-covered in 1898 by William Ramsay and Morris Travers. However, it was George Claude who was the first to create the neon. He combined electric gases and then passed an electric current through them. The result of thi [...]

Spatial letters in our cities

Spatial letters in our cities

  In the last few months, technology has moved forward, taking us into a completely different dimension. However, one thing has remained the same. Of course, we are talking about the use of spatial letters by manufacturers of advertising signs. Additional development of the technology of illuminating letters with LED modules means that this choice will be the best decision for many years to come. You ask why? These decisions are influenced by a number of factors, among others, the materials from which they are made, their functionality, versatility and originality. Let's start with the first factor which are the materials used to create three-dimensional letters. You probably don't even expect it but spatial letters can be made of any type of material, from ordinary metal letters, through stainless steel sheet, plexiglass, and even natural leather!

Neon as a unique and timeless form of communication

Neon as a unique and timeless form of communication

Four years ago…. I remember it like it was yesterday, in mid-October 2016, I received a mysterious phone call asking me to take pictures of several spatial advertisements in the Tri-City. My first thought was - "I should take pictures of billboards and store advertisements… It makes no sense". But on the other hand, as a photographer, I always value gaining photographic experience in undiscovered areas. After the first meeting with the boss of the Pretende company, I knew that they would not be just some hanging advertisements, but creative, modern and elegant, unique and eye-catching spatial advertisements. Not only are there spatial letters decorating various entrances, but also LED illuminated letters, exclusive golden letters or futuristic inscriptions made of wooden and stainless steel letters. However, none of them delight me as much as neon ads! This is how my four-year-long adventure with various neon signs all over Poland began. And all of them cam [...]
