In a recent post about my new logo, I mentioned that I’ve been influenced by the typography I see on the old buildings around town. There are some amazing signs that have been hand-painted directly on the brick of various warehouses and businesses. Some of these signs are old and fading and will eventually disappear. Fortunately, some of these signs have been restored as a way of preserving the unique character of the building – even if the original business is no longer in existence.
My iPhone has been opening up a whole new world of photography for me recently – probably because it is so convenient to snap photos, and I always have it with me. Here is a composite panoramic photo I took in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania recently. I took several photos of this amazing sky and pieced them roughly in PhotoShop just to play around and see how it might turn out.
