Recent work: Gretchen Whitney High School gym painted School Pride graphics

When I work with clients, the pre-job presentation is part of the process many have expressed appreciation for. You know just what you’re going to get, beforehand – and edits can be made until you’re happy with it. The result, then, will be exactly what you want.

In the 1960’s, signs were hand-painted. So, rather than have the almost too-perfect computer generated look to the graphics on the truck they contacted Big City Signs to paint graphics onto it. Here are some notes about the project.
