The Art of A Trade – Sign Writing Gets Some Love In This Short

Is there anything more satisfying than a perfectly smooth line?  I love looking at it.  I love watching it happen.  I even love how it happens in different mediums!  Ink, charcoal, paint, it doesn’t matter.  Just give it to me.

There is also something so refreshing about watching a film about those who define their work as ‘Sign Writers’.  Not typographers, not some other fancy synonym, but Sign Writers, doing a simple job handed down through generations, a trade.  Whether or not they would consider their work art doesn’t negate that their work is certainly worthy of your gaze. Take a minute and watch this great short film about Sign Writers in Dublin.

Thanks to my buddy Conor for the tip!
