Signs have been making businesses stand out from the rest since commerce itself was just a wee nipper. Nowadays, with 99% of signage being designed on a computer and made with vinyl, you can make your business stand out with the human touch, via a Signwriter who is geekishly passionate about letterforms and layout, with just his hands, some brushes and a bit of paint.

The Looking Glass, High Street, Bristol

...Just up from St.Nicks Market, around the corner from Castle Park - opening March 10th!
Apologies again for the crappy phone pics - I'll get some good 'uns when I get five minutes. You can't really see from them, but I've given the letters highlighted edges on the upper and left sides, and shading on the lower and right sides, to give them a bevelled edge effect.

Macaroons AGAIN...

Treasure Stokes Croft...

This is a sign I did aaaaages ago, but they've only recently relocated to this new shop around the corner - the sign's a little bit dwarfed by the size of the fascia, but it still looks okay.


Hoek's Death Metal Pizza - I had to take this box back with me when we stopped by their in Austin, Texas, the year before last - the pizza is great, and it's the only place I've ever been able to truly enjoy Death Metal. In the background is one of my first experiments with gold leaf.
