Tip of the Brush

From Travis Lux | 04:31

Billboards, business logos, street signs, window lettering; If you drive down any Main Street you’re surrounded by signs. But how did they get there? And who makes them? Even as recently as the 1980’s, most were produced by hand, with paint and brush by commercial artists whose full-time job it was to paint signs. Today the human hand is less evident in signs - which are usually cut from sticky vinyl and designed with computer software. But old-school sign painters are still out there – like Greg Vaughan who lives and works in Brewster.

This piece was produced at the Transom Story Workshop with editorial direction from Rob Rosenthal and Audrey Quinn.
