Can’t say too much at the moment, but we were recently approached to make a neon sign that will feature in the Manchester Utd vs Norwich pre-match build-up on ESPN this Saturday, 17th November. Kick-off is 5:30pm so for those of you that have ESPN make sure you tune in before the game.
The manufacture of the neon sign was filmed on Wednesday.
Our neon signs for Reebok shared the stage with Labrinth last week at a “secret” gig hosted by Reebok Classics.
The event, which was held at the Old Vic Tunnels beneath Waterloo station in London, featured several acts, with Labrinth headlining the event which was attended by celebrities, industry representatives and a number of fans.
We were tasked with producing 5 neon signs in total, which were simply the iconic Reebok ‘R’ in white neon. The centre piece of these was a 2m high version, with 2 smaller pieces featuring on the stage, and then another 2 fitted onto the graffitied walls of the Old Vic Tunnels.
At Neon Creations, we are continually looking at expanding our product range, and we are now really excited to launch our Neon Infinity Box.
As can be seen, these give the illusion of the neon shape going on and on and on……..
We find that the effect works best when using simple shapes, but it would be possible to customise this to incorporate text.
As with all of our custom made neon signs, there are a wide range of colours available to chose from.
These neon infinity boxes look great mounted directly onto the wall, and make really unique gifts. They would also make a really great feature in a bar or nightclub.
In these examples, the overall size is 500mm x 500mm, but again, can be customised to suit individual requirements.

Neon is undoubtedly the most eye catching form of lighting or signage, and can definitely be used in the most creative ways. It is indeed a form of art, as every single neon design is hand made – starting out as a straight glass tube, and being transformed by the use of a flame, into curves, letters, logos.
The use of neon has truly stood the test of time, with the first neon sign being sold to a Paris barber in 1912. You only need to take a walk down any High Street to see that neon is still going strongly today, and it is not just used in shops, bars and restaurants, but is increasingly used for other applications, with many people buying neon signs and art for use in their homes.
People are sometimes put off using neon as they perceive it to be dangerous. However, although an electric current passes through the glass tubes to light up the gases inside, in recent years, regulations and technology mean that in the unlikely event that a neon sign did break, any power to the sign would immediately cut off, making neon safer than ever to use.
Another misconception is that all neon signs require specialist installation. Whilst this is true of external and some internal neon signs, Neon Creations specialise in the design and manufacture of portable internal neon signs that can be plugged into a normal plug socket. This also means that once a sign has been used at one venue, it can be used again and again, in different locations.
Finally, there is sometimes a perception that neon is expensive. However, when you consider that the lifespan of a typical neon sign is around 10 years, you are actually getting good value for money.
Unless you have been living in a cave for the last month or so, you can’t have failed to notice the new advertising campaign for the new Pot Noodle Doner Kebab flavour.
Described as the “ultimate man food”, this new flavour was launched at the end of March, and now joins a range of more than 10 flavours.
As part of the promotional campaign, a catering trailer is being taken on a roadshow, to serve up the new flavour across the country – www.potnoodle.com/DonerBelieveIt/.
It was for this purpose that we were contacted by Closer, an experiential marketing agency in London, who asked us to create custom made neon signs to their given artwork for displaying on the trailer.
Matt Myatt from Closer said, “We are very happy with the neon signs, which totally met the brief. The quality of the neon signs are superb and the team were very helpful and friendly.”
