It's funny, I just did this type of effect for a title I was working on, but I did a 3D version in Cinema 4D XL6. But the way to do it is very similar...in the AE version you would set up the mockup graphic in Photoshop (or Illustrator) of the sign and keep all the elements on different layers. Then import the layered PS file into AE. It's then pretty easy to keyframe a luminance/color saturation filter effect to make to lights blink on and off ("chase"). I guess you could also have a black letter text layer that would be above a light panel layer.

(It took me a while to get set the keyframes in Cinema 4D, until I realized a lot of it could be done with cut and paste.)
