Some of the world’s most sensational signage, architectural fabrication and corporate art originates at ARTfx. Our Bloomfield, Connecticut, staff includes designers from the nation’s leading art schools, craftsmen with decades of industry experience, and project managers with a diversity of backgrounds – all committed to the model set forth 40 years ago. Though our work has increased in scale and scope, the focus on artistry and attention to detail remains as it was the day the doors opened in 1983.
