The Best of the East Bay Party is an unconventional festival in every way, and the signage is no exception. You’ll find handmade signs courtesy of the Express‘s ace design team, throughout the halls and courtyards of the museum, directing you to the various activities.

And for our East Bay Express and Amoeba Music sign hanging over the main stage, we’ve tapped El Cerrito-based Made for Glory Signs for the job of hand designing and painting our largest and most prominent sign. Sure, we could have dug out one of our company’s preprinted vinyl banners from storage, but where’s the fun in that?
