John Shaw is the Founder and the Conductor of the Orchestra at DaVinci Sign Systems located in Windsor, Colorado.  DaVinci specializes in the creation of custom sign systems for businesses, communities, schools, churches and organizations of all kinds.  John founded the company in 2004 in Fort Collins, and has over 30 employees on the "E-Team" - everything about them is positive, and they work hard and always together - to make their client's custom signage dreams a reality.  

John's entrepreneurial journey started in 1985 when he founded Shaw Sign & Awning in Fort Collins, a business which grew over 13 years to over 50 employees.  In a perhaps-impulsive move to make more room for his family, John sold Shaw Sign & Awning in 1998.  From there, he wondered and wandered for a time through real estate, commercial insurance sales and custom home building.  He found himself coming back to the industry he knows and loves the best with the founding of DaVinci.  

John shares a look behind the curtain of the custom signage industry, with reflections on the changes and consistencies in the industry over a 30-year period.  He also shares insights gained from his non-business pursuits, ranging from his love of surfing to his decision to pursue a self-supported Ride the Rockies effort this season when the official ride was canceled over Covid concerns.  Enthusiasm, Endurance, and Excellence are abundant on the E-team, and John conducts the orchestra of their talents at the office and in his individual pursuits.
