Cicada Cantina

Project Solution

The owner of Cicada Cantina in Redding, CA, needed signage that reflects the fresh style of his innovative Mexican restaurant. A returning client, he knows he can count on McHale to provide the creativity, outstanding craftsmanship and quality service he expects from a sign company.

For Cicada Cantina’s sign, the owner provided the inspiration; our designer took the restaurateur’s vision and aligned it with the proper materials. To achieve a natural look, we created a bi-level, two-tone metal design. For the base, we freehand-cut 14-gauge mild steel with a plasma cutter and etched it for a bluing effect. We then painted the steel lettering in Cicada’s signature green and stud-mounted it to the base. Green LED backlighting gives the sign a halo effect at night.

To ensure excellent visibility, we combined the right color and finish with the perfect amount of backlighting to make the business name really pop. Not a simple task, but we got it done. The owner is very happy with the results … and that makes us happy!
