Much like illustration and typography design, sign painting is an art. In a new documentary, Sign Painters, Faythe Levine and Sam Macon take a hard look at the world of sign painting. From interviews with sign painters young and old, viewers hear about the perks of creative freedom and the pitfalls of losing jobs to cheap, vinyl signage. Learn more about the job, the challenges and, most of all, the inspiration that has led to the creation of some pretty rad signs. To learn more, watch the trailer below.
