Brad Hominick Productions specializes in community roadside signs of all sizes and shapes. If you come across an especially interesting sign in your travels across Northwestern Ontario, chances are BHP is behind the construction.

Case in point: the new signage in and around Nipigon, Ontario. This project involved many traditional and specialty sign installations including the main Nipigon road sign installed near the local tourist information bureau. Commissioned by the Township of Nipigon and designed by Henry Suarez of Fire Dog Communications, this one-of-a-kind sign celebrates the National Film Board’s (NFB) classic short, “Paddle to the Sea”. Brad Hominick took the 2D drawing and transformed it into the 3D monument using wood, steel, and natural rock from the area. This beautiful yet rugged sign will delight locals and tourists alike for decades to come.

In particular, Henry Suarez praised Brad Hominick’s attention to detail in realizing the artist’s vision, his quality craftsmanship, and excellent choice of building materials.

Other signs in the 2013 project included a wall mural, road signs, and signage at the actual Paddle to the Sea Park.

You can view larger samples from this and other projects in the BHP Portfolio Gallery.

“It was a pleasure to work together with BHP on the new Nipigon initiatives. Their knowledge and experience are true assets to anyone looking to improve the quality, longevity, and craftsmanship of new or existing signs in the region. Attention to detail, value, professionalism, safe structures, and a quality product are what BHP provides.

“BHP also works hard at keeping true to the artist’s vision and provides great insight into how to achieve the artist’s vision within safety guidelines, building standards, and client budget.”
