Dimensional Signs That Resemble Rosemaling

Are you wondering what we mean by rosemaling? Rosemaling is a design term that is based on Norwegian folk art.  It features flourishes, scroll work and geometric shapes.  Often rosemaling is a repetitive design.  In the Disney animated movie FROZEN, rosemaling was repetitive throughout the film.  The architecture, the furnishings, the outfits and even the winter scenery in the film was designed around the rosemaling technique.  You can see glimpses of rosemaling patterns in the  LET IT GO music video below.

Did you notice how the snowflakes, Elsa’s cape and even her castle highlight rosemaling?

Because of it’s artistic style, rosemaling is often incorporated into dimensional signs here at The Sign Depot. Below are a few examples of designs and dimensional signs that have references to rosemaling.

Heading North?

This outdoor dimensional stone sign was sandblasted with a geometric design pointing to north, south, east and west. It also includes some scrolls near the bottom of the sign.

Dimensional Signs And Structures

Below is just one part of what became a large floral sign structure.  With Pantone announcing their 2017 Colour Of The Year as Greenery, this HDU (high density urethane) sign element fits well for this time of year. We think think this structure would also work well in a rosemaling design.

Feeling Frozen?

Even our winter scene logo has geometric shapes and a scroll design that would be found in a folk art rosemaling pattern. While we are not located in Norway, you might get a little chilly when you take a look at all the details in this logo design.

With the arrival of the fresh white snow all we have left to ask is  DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN?
