Over 1000 lamps and 12 foot high centrepiece

There can't be many people with an eye on the entertainment industry that have failed to notice the huge illuminated sign accompanying Morrissey on his recent tour and publicity shots. Forming the centrepiece for his shows, this custom sign was designed and manufactured by Specialz to a brief provided by lighting designer Max Conwell.


Comprising over 1000 lamps, the 12 foot high sign was fabricated from aluminium - with each letter in two halves so that it could be transported in a standard dolly, again designed by us.


Visually, the sign looks stunning thanks to Max's choice of base colour for the letters, which means they can be red one moment or green the next. Las Vegas effects are also possible due to the three circuit wiring scheme.
