In a day when computers were only found in science fiction books, people used to create signs using a pot of paint and a brush. ( I so wanted to use “a stick with hair poking out of it”…!). It was in these days that the importance of designing a sign and the art form of typography were held in high regard. Signs were works of art. There are still a few people around that practice this art form and the old methods of sign design can still be found. These are eye-catching ways of branding your building or walls and can turn your sign into an icon used by locals!
