A Big


Welcome to Light Asylum 

the home of quality handcrafted 

signs with character.

My Story….

I originally started back in 2013 making fun novelty signs that could be backlit as a hobby for friends and family, throughout that time I enjoyed coming up with new designs. I was in full-time employment and did not progress it into a business and after many years of tinkering at my hobby, I eventually took the plunge in 2021, a brand new business venture and probably a few more grey hairs to go with it, Light Asylum was born. 

The collection of signs caters for everyone, young and old alike. They look great in a child’s bedroom, playroom, games room, or even your own den.

Let me introduce myself, I am Simon, the guy behind Light Asylum. I design and make all the signs you will see here. 

‍    “I created one that still looks good today and even after many years, although my daughter has grown up, she still likes to have the light on when she comes home to stay.”

When I first came up with the idea and various designs, there was nothing like it on the market. It all started when I made my daughter her favourite cartoon character, a 4-foot-tall Betty Boop for her bedroom. This went on the wall and was backlit with pink LEDs - that was a challenge in itself! I wanted to design a stylish and durable piece of work. After many attempts, designs and styles, I created one that still looks good today and even after many years, although my daughter has grown up, she still likes to have the light on when she comes home to stay.

So here we are, years later, I have built up a range of wall signs from my designs and have completed many individual commissions. All reviews have been positive and I have been humbled by many of my customer’s comments.

I am always trying to perfect my products and come up with fresh new designs and ideas and I hope you find something in my store that you like. If you are after something a bit more individual please get in touch either by my contact form or one of the social media sites that I am on and let’s work together to make an exceptional and unique sign just for you.

Everything is made to order, so it can take approximately 2 weeks to produce. However, as I make all my products by hand, you can rest assured that they all will be of the highest standard.

If you are looking for something new, unique, maybe a bit quirky and just a little cooler than the rest…. Light Asylum.


I have been working on a range of large wall clocks as a new addition to the Light Asylum family. The range is called Click Clock, this is my first, a modern cool design with large different-sized numbers that can be made in any colour combination of your choosing.   If you want a blue face to match your interior, no problem! if beige is your thing, done! Day-glow pink with fluorescent yellow numbers, it’s on its way.  The clock features  * A silent sweeping mechanism, so no annoying ticking. * Available in two sizes, 50cm or 90cm in diameter. * Fully assembled and ready to hang * Battery included.

Another day in the office 🥵☕️☀️ I thought I would take advantage of this lovely weather and work outside today.
I was asked to produce a Graffiti name tag in the name of Willow and to use her favourite colours, which were Purple and blue, with a Japanese theme to it. This is what I produced and in return got an amazing review. "OMG! Ordered a sign to mark my daughter's 18th birthday. Simon captured her passion for Japan perfectly in her favourite colours too. Stunning sign perfectly crafted. Unique just like Willow! Perfect. Planning to order signs for my sons now." #LightAsylum #name #nametag #graffiti #graffitiart
