For his entire career, Alan has been involved in all aspects of point-of-purchase advertising from design to delivery.
He co-founded Data Display Corporation in 1980. Later he acquired a small neon company as a division and renamed it Neon Glassworks. Data Display was sold in the mid 1980s and Neon Glassworks was renamed Zeon Corporation to better reflect the wide range of products and services offered beyond neon.
Along the way, the company constantly changed to meet market needs and Alan’s own desire to bring the best brand identity products into the market. What started as a single designer turning company logos into neon signs has become a full design staff that utilizes a broad range of technologies including neon, LED, fluorescent, non-illuminated, and products that include signs, display racks, chalk boards and many others. Zeon was also the first company to build Point-of-Purchase displays out of reclaimed Colorado beetle kill pine. Zeon’s materials bag of tricks also includes reclaimed snow fencing, reclaimed cedar fencing and distressed corrugated.
In July, 2008, he bought out his co-founding partner and now he is the sole owner of Zeon. Alan and his creative staff, combined with many other employees, develop unique POP concepts using traditional and non-traditional materials.
Zeon works with companies in a variety of industries including craft brewers, furniture, consumer products, outdoor equipment, action sports, music, automotive and wireless communications.
