hand painted signs

Recommended Posts

I knew a writer back in the nineties who did produce signs for a handful of stores, they had a nice handstyle.  Good luck in getting the go ahead from the manager.

On my walk this morning I thought to take a couple pictures of the same business with both hand painted and vinyl lettering.

Similar theme, two pictures from my morning walk, one homemade hand-painted, the other new style vinyl.

There is also the middle of the timeline, neither hand painted nor vinyl/computer aided signage. I do not know what this is called, the hard plastic molded stuff, sometimes the coloring is by hand.

Yea, the no visitor sign grabbed my attention for sure.

 

Another great home made form is the lost pet flyer, although they too are falling victim to the computer generated product.

Another hand painted vs. vinyl comparison, touching up the original would have been way classier than throwing up the new signage.

That no visitors sign is amazing. Almost like a punk advertisement 

I walked by the other day and he was making another, I wanted to take a picture of the man in action but was gun shy.

I've got a handful of friends who have worked at Colossal Media since day one. They do some pretty incredible work, but I always love the lettering stuff more than everything else.

I cant remember if we have talked about vehicle lettering, there is a big body of work out there rolling as well.

Nothing special here but I noticed it out and about the other day, I know there are many in the trucking industry who will always pay the extra for paint over decal.

Truck designs are the best. 

 

This is is a sick old Chevy used primarily as a permanent pizza joint sign. I know the dudes that do a lot of the shit around here and this piece got ragged not long ago. Old graffiti.

Was actually set to go to John Downers course out in LA, at least in my mind. Had no idea what i was going to do, where i was going to live, but i needed to get out of where i was and this seemed like what i wanted and my way out. Hadn't heard back for a while and assumed that dream was dead. Found another job doing what i was already doing but traveling making almost 3x what i was back home and jumped on it. A couple weeks into my first assignment i get the letter i was accepted into the program, haha.
