Statesman Studio gets IONized

By January 16, 2018Uncategorized

The Studio team’s latest field trip took them to Austin’s Ion Art Inc. Kim Harrington, Studio’s senior designer, was introduced to Ion Art at an event last November that celebrated 100 years of Neon in Austin. Founded by husband and wife team Greg and Sharon Keshishian in 1986, Ion Art as grown over time from a neon sign company to a “design-build” powerhouse that mixes myriad media (neon, argon, metal, glass, wood) to create some of the most unique art, display, and signage pieces anywhere. In fact, it’s almost impossible to miss their work if you’re walking around Austin at night.

The Studio team would like to thank Kyle Beck, Design Manager, Wesleann Mendell, Operations Manager, and the rest of the Ion Art crew, for a fantastic tour of their facility, the in-depth explanation of their processes, and especially for fulfilling our continual quest for creative enlightenment!
