Acorn in Action: RiverLights

Acorn Sign Graphic’s work with the RiverLights community located in Wilmington, North Carolina was an extremely extensive project that not only included signage production, but also logo development and permitting. RiverLights spans a 3 mile stretch of the Cape Fear River and focuses on lifestyle first. Within the community, RiverLights features townhomes, diverse single-family homes, an age restricted neighborhood, walking trails, the Marina Village with boat docks, restaurants, commercial areas and more.

With such an expansive community in development, RiverLights turned to us here at Acorn to develop a broad range of signage needs. We designed and fabricated entrance signage at multiple locations, builder and lot markers, trail signs, wayfinding, restaurant signage and more. With such a diverse set of needs, we enjoyed partnering with RiverLights to not only produce the signage, but to assist with the development of their vision as a whole.

Residents of RiverLights come home to an intentional community featuring impeccable amenities and easy access to charming downtown Wilmington. With varying levels of home options for those interested in living in RiverLights, the community is accessible to anyone looking to live a life on the river and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. RiverLights also has an active social calendar so residents are able to get to know their neighbors and enjoy the relationship focus of the community.

Here at Acorn, we’ve partnered with clients throughout the East Coast and enjoy working to make the signage industry more accessible, inclusive and environmentally responsible. To see more photos of our work with RiverLights and a list of the sign types we produced, check out our profile at
