Ron was commissioned to create an illustration for the new community ID sign for the historic town of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, in collaboration with designer Steve Slipp.

Ron created an acrylic painting that provided the basis for the vector art that Steve used to complete the design.  Some colours were changed for the sign which was manufactured with vinyl adhered to metal.
