Sign Painters



After reading the copy for a catalogue called Sign Painting - A slower, and Less Hurried Era, by Faythe Levien and Sam Macon, I was inspired by the timelessness of a painted sign. Even with technology, sign painting has a charm that cannot be replaced. I decided to take this text and lay it out like a retro user manual that you would have found in sign paintings heyday. I borrowed color palettes that were popular in the 1950’s and 60’s and overlaid them onto photographs. The text is very ordered as if it were instructions in a manual, and in face, this book also acst as a manual to begin sign painting
