Scripts, dead letters, handstyles - there's so much crossover between advertising, graffiti and graphic design. The American craft of sign painting originated a lot of the conventions we still use today. SIGN PAINTERS is a new documentary showcasing the past, present and future of the hand painted sign in the USA. It’s an amazing film directed by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon and now available at www.signpaintersfilm.com. The film features legends such as Keith Knecht and Bob Dewhurst to contemporaries like Ira Coyne in Washington, Gary Martin in Austin and Colossal Media in NYC.
