Research & Development

Ghost signs are large, hand-painted advertisements—often on the sides of brick buildings—that have been worn down over time, leaving a faded impression of what once was. Creating faux ghost signs for contemporary restaurants requires developing lettering and illustration styles grounded in the American vernacular, analyzing the aging process that has formed existing ghost signs, and capturing the personality of the restaurant and its location.
