Studio Spotlight: New Bohemia Signs

New Bohemia Signs is the San Fransisco based lettering and sign painting studio responsible for some of the most beautiful hand painted sings around San Fran. Everything from A-stands to windows paintings, from gilding to signs, they use a variety of hand-rendered font styles and techniques, including gold leaf. Their portfolio is a treat to browse though, but the making-of is even more interesting. A dying art revived, hand painted signs were big in the States and the world, long before vinyl and printing techniques came along.The imperfections of hand-rendered makes it that much more beautiful and nostalgic. Have a look at their Flickr account too.
Below is a FontShop interview with Bohemia Signs' Damon Styer.
