Michigan Sign Company Owner and Operator Al Lalonde
Creative Designs and Signs is a full-service custom Michigan Sign Company based in the Pontiac, Auburn Hills area offering dimensionally fabricated entry signs for subdivisions, schools, municipalities, and businesses, throughout south east Michigan. Our business started with designing custom, hand drawn, carved and sandblasted redwood and cedar signs 36 years ago. We have progressed as well with our carved signs into building custom illuminated and digital signs, message centers, commercial entry ground signs, architectural monument signs, awnings, interior signs, displays and graphics, and custom neon signs. We offer a complete design build service from design concept, fabrication, installation, and service.
Al LaLonde, owner and senior designer, has extensive background in design and painting starting as a teenager studying photography. His interest in custom cars led him into owning Unique Vans, a custom van shop, building and designing beautiful interiors and paint jobs for vans, trucks and cars. His interest progressed into owning and operating LaLonde’s Design, a custom aircraft and vehicle, paint and interior shop at Al Meyers Airport in Tecumseh, Michigan. As he improved his skill in air brush renderings at Washtenaw Community College, designing lettering and signs were becoming of interest. The business progressed into complete restorations of air craft and vehicles as well as beautiful color schemes. His interest in sign art and brush lettering pulled him to study graphic arts at Pratt Institute of Design in New York. Returning in 1980, Al LaLonde opened Creative Designs and Signs and to this day our team of professional artists, fabricators and installers have applied their skills to delivering professionally designed signs and concepts for our customers.
