Environmental Graphics | Identity | Signage Design
Ross Luthin Creative is an environmental graphic design, wayfinding and sign design firm founded in 2000 by Gordy Ross and Ted Luthin on the premise that good environmental graphic, wayfinding and signage design has the power to make places more interesting, experiences more memorable, destinations easier to find and businesses more successful. Since then, we have applied this concept to the enhancement of every type of project, designing sign programs and environmental graphics for mixed-use developments, destination resorts, corporate campuses, retail centers, office buildings, multifamily residential complexes, colleges, universities, student housing and medical centers. Our services include: environmental graphic design, signage design, master sign programs, Visual Positioning and identity design.
Having accumulated over thirty years of work in the Environmental Graphics profession, Gordy utilizes his wealth of experience to lead the creative efforts of Ross/Luthin Creative. A founding principal of the firm, his work is a blending of spatial planning, technical know-how and creative intuition. Gordy applies many of his experiential assets to each project: materials knowledge and fabrication techniques, planning, understanding project and tenant identity needs, and budget awareness and value engineering.
His extensive work as a Designer and Creative Director has included leading the creative efforts for a broad range of projects - from corporate campuses and medical facilities to boutique wineries and regional retail centers.
