Street Lettering or Polite Messaging

It’s not uncommon to come across chalkboard style street lettering on city or rural streets in Italy. They are often times humorous messages written by family or friends for brides and grooms on their wedding day. I absolutely love the graphic appeal. They are even let’s say, polite, as they don’t need public buildings for showcase, but only a wide enough street--no one to task in scrubbing away or painting over the writing on the wall, but just a matter of time to wash off with a bit of snow or rain.

2013 is just around the corner and it’s a time for reflection of what has been accomplished in the studio at Pirouette Press--how to make it better--anticipating future projects in the New Year. 

I think this street graphic communicates a message meant not only for the bride and groom on their special day, but for anyone who happens to be on that same road towards happiness, uncertainty and new adventures.
