Ghost Signs
150 Pins
This is a board I'm compiling as part of my research of old signage (especially Minneapolis signage) for a type design project. Figured it was cool stuff worth sharing.
On the one hand, I love a good old timey drug store kinda sign. On the other, old timey is a little overdone at the moment.

For the long brick wall - maybe we create a "vintage" version of our Pyxl logo in some sort of cool hand-lettering style? And mix it with other words/information.
