The Hollywood Sign Generator

Ranked #1 in Google for “Hollywood Sign Generator“, this simple web app allowed users to generate their own text in place of the Hollywood Sign, and was easily shareable on social networks with one-click sharing buttons. At one point it went massively viral on Facebook, with 250K+ images generated in 48 hours, 500K+ visitors, and 1.5MM pageviews.

Developed as part of the Save the Hollywood Sign campaign, this accessory piece has overtaken other text-generator websites in Google to take the top spot. It has since been taken down based on the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s insistence as it infringed the Chamber’s exclusive rights in and to the Hollywood Stylized Mark (AKA Hollywood Sign).
