History and Profile

In 1983, Lawrin Rosen founded a company called ARTeffects, with the goal of setting new standards in the industry for innovative and aesthetically enhanced signage. Training in fine art and architectural history combined with practical experience in outdoor advertising laid the groundwork for a unique enterprise. Countless manufacturing and design awards have proven the company concept.

Entering the 21st century, ARTeffects, edited its ‘street name’ to ARTfx to update online identification. Today, our Bloomfield, Connecticut facility hosts 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 over three decades ago. Though projects have often increased in scale, and the scope of the work has progressed to include many facets of architectural fabrication, the focus on artistry and attention to detail is much as it was the day the doors opened in 1983. And Lawrin, when not at his desk, visiting clients, or at job sites, can still be found in the manufacturing departments engaged in various hands-on endeavors or carefully inspecting the work before it leaves the facility.
