With some adaptation, the original 12 Points of the Scout Law became the Guiding Values for the new company: 12-Point SignWorks. In 2021, 12-Point SignWorks transitioned under the direction of new owners, Natalie and Patrick Owings, who happily continue building upon the legacy Murray Johns built.
Natalie received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Accounting from California State University, Northridge. She followed this with a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license for the state and trained in the Certification Program in the Business and Management of Entertainment at the University of California, Los Angeles. Realizing quickly she needed a creative environment to thrive, Natalie made a move to Paramount Studios, followed by The Walt Disney Company for several years. Over her career, her roles in business expanded from audit to financial reporting, to business operations, and ultimately to Executive Vice President of Finance and Operations.
Patrick’s work roots start with signs, back when he worked for his father at a large corporation in their marketing department. He found himself on the shop floor loving every minute of the excitement of production and bringing brands and stories to life. During that time, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, with a master’s in Materials (engineering) from the University of California, Northridge. He later obtained his bachelor’s in Accounting from Lipscomb University to enhance his business knowledge as he oversaw marketing and events companies.
In addition to education and experience tailor-made for running a business, Natalie and Patrick are thrilled to return to a creative environment to put their branding, marketing, entertainment, and engineering experience to work with custom signage and graphics.
Natalie says, “We already held each of the 12 points of the Scout Law to high standards before having a son who wanted to become an Eagle Scout. When we found there was a man with a business that created his work environment around those principles, it was further confirmation we were in the right place with the right company.”
We’re so happy to find our home at 12-Point SignWorks and hope we get a chance to show you the 12 Guiding Values in action when we work together!
We are honest in our dealings with others and always strive to be fair in the value of our products and services.
We protect our customers' information with confidentiality, and we do what we commit to do.
We go the extra mile to make sure our customers' experience working with us is both pleasant and constructive.
We enjoy our customer relationships and look forward to seeing our customers smile in each interaction.
We acknowledge differences of opinion without contention and strive for win/win outcomes.
We live according to the Golden Rule and treat others the way that we want to be treated.
We help our customers understand zoning ordinances, and we honor the protection of copyrighted materials.
We uplift those around us and leave them glad to see us rather than glad to see us go!
We are careful in our usage of materials and our time to avoid waste and to provide cost-effective services and products.
When persuaded to deviate from these principles, we maintain our position and hold fast.
We will always leave our client’s premises the way we found it; putting away tools and materials, and leaving nothing behind except a satisfied customer.
We acknowledge our customers' schedules and do not compromise their trust in the quality of our products.
The dashes around the perimeter of our logo represent the 12 Guiding Values. They serve as an influential backdrop for our business decisions and interactions both with our customers and within our company. This operating foundation provides the rudder for long-lasting positive customer relationships and for personal and corporate development and fulfillment.
