This style of graphic would also be great for a news agents or grocery store.

Type Mural + Video on Behance

The visual story of the creative process that goes into creating a mural. Made over two days, Ben Johnston designs a custom lettered design & painted mural for Project Owl, a co-working space in Toronto.
The mural embodies what start-up life is all about–some people just want to “drink coffee, create stuff & sleep”.
The video was

Hand painted shop signage

This photo was sent to me by a very good friend who saw this butchers shop in Shrewsbury and loved the tag line hand painted onto the front of the building.

I love it to and just wish more stores would use the architecture of their buildings in a similar way instead of covering them with ugly plastic signs or banners.

Bring back the old crafts is what i say.

Atelier Abigail Ahern

It makes such a difference to the high street when stores dress the exterior of their shops

Atelier Abigail Ahern always has a fabulous display outside her store in Islington, this time a cute doggy in a fab floral display.

I really wish more stores would dress to impress their customers and help make the high streets more visually appealing.

Hanging signage

Love this hanging signage on a store in Shorditch, back in the good old days or retailing every store would have a 3d hanging sign made to represent what the store or business was selling.

Bring the good old days of retailing back i say.

Shorditch Junk

Two things i love about this junk shop apart from the junk that is.

1 – love the font used for their signage

2 – love the way they have created a picture frame around their window

The rest needs attention!!!!
