Proprietor Abby Conklin fulfilled a long time dream of opening her own sign shop by founding A52 Signs and Graphics in January 2012. The seed was planted during college when she worked part-time at P. Smith Signs, a local sign shop in Knoxville, Tennessee. When the opportunity arose to transition fully into a new career, Abby dove headfirst into the training and education that would be the base of her creative calling. She studied in the certificate programs for Graphic Design and for Web Design and Graphics at City College of San Francisco. She also trained in all facets of signage production processes at the now closed Signs By Tomorrow in Santa Clara and at the National Taxi Cab Supply in San Francisco.
For a decade, Abby previously worked as a women's college basketball coach at multiple Division I programs across the country. It was in this profession that she dabbled in graphic design and print layouts for the basketball programs' visual communication needs for recruits, supporters, and campers. Abby took on increasingly complex graphic design projects and progressively applied self-taught techniques in design software into her work. This experience solidified her desire to pursue a sign making profession.
Abby has a M.A. in Organization and Leadership from the University of San Francisco. She earned her bachelor's degree at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where she also played collegiate basketball and won two national championships. Abby's jersey number was 52, which is the origin of the "52" in the business name.
