I am excited for the trend that a few restaurants and businesses have been following, where designs are hand-painted directly on their walls. While this is nothing new, it is refreshing to see many businesses putting value in the skill of traditional sign painting.
I created this piece today as an exercise/sketch for a restaurant/bar. I tried to come up with a fun, bold saying that would look nice in the small dining area around a larger bar setup. I used bold, yet legible typography that highlights some of their specialties, and a fun custom tongue-in-cheek phrase.
Made to look hand-painted. Digital paint using photoshop and illustrator.
What do you think? Would you want to see a similar style of artwork in your neighborhood bar or burger shack?
