From an unassuming inception chalking the menu board for Toasted Bagels in Brickell, husband & wife team Cynthia Santos and Benjamin Levy of the Wynwood Sign Painting Company have created an artistic entrepreneurial interest that has landed contracts from small craft eateries to globally respected corporations and charities. While you might recognize their work from such local staples as Pincho Factory, Spring Chicken, Grown, The Local and Wynwood Arcade, traipse into any Starbucks in the Southeast and you’re just as likely to see their trademark crisp lines and clean infographics. With services ranging from mural design and sign-painting to children’s room decoration (Heat Shooting Guard Ray Allen was just such a client), Miami should be proud to know that this homegrown biz is leaving a little of their trademark style all across the nation; WynwoodSignPainting.com.
Beyond its colorful interiors and exteriors, vibrant entertainment lineup and authentic Mexican cuisine, Pilo’s aims to be the largest employer of individuals with special abilities.

Some you may have heard of, some you will discover here first, but all have one thing in common: They’re on the verge of greatness and thrilled to share their passion with the world.
