Here's a sign along those lines that my predecessor here approved at a church. The final design is much better than the rendering, but the full color display and motion included in it are really a glaring contrast to the church and the surrounding historic district. My recommendation would be: 1) Never do anything with motion on it, 2) image changes no more frequent than every five seconds, and 3) seriously consider going single color. https://milwaukee.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=1472567&GUID=6AA88A04-B40E-49BC-A77E-2B622302BE50&Options=Text|&Search=anthony+certificate+mitchell
Google shot of the end result. I'm really not a fan, but the stonework was executed well at least. https://goo.gl/maps/x1Z6LEm3Rh72
