Call for IIT sign design

Time for a new sign at IIT! What would you suggest? We are in the process of replacing our sign at the south-eastern corner of the property at 1630 Neilson Rd. An aesthetically pleasing sign is a visual identifier conveying both the spirit of the institution it represents as well as the form of activity that lies within. We are opening up the process for anyone to submit a conceptual design, so get involved!
