New Bohemia Signs Are Utilitarian History

The sign painting business is becoming a lost art. But New Bohemia Signs in San Francisco is keeping that tradition alive by creating fresh, retro-inspired signage for businesses in the Bay Area. One of the things I like best about them is that they recognize the artistry of the practice, and sometimes present their craft in galleries as art.

From New Bohemia Signs:

Welcome to New Bohemia Signs. We are designers and sign writers who appreciate the art of a good looking hand-painted sign. Our work can be seen all over San Francisco, please take a look at our portfolio and flickr set. You'll be surprised at what you recognize. An attractive sign is much more likely to draw customers into your business and beautify your neighborhood at the same time. New Bohemia has been hand-painting signs since 1993.

I really encourage you to follow the above links to their flickr set in addition to their site. Tons and tons of exquisite work to be found there. Or start here at their superb site.
