Indian Sign Painting

I have always loved sign painting in India. The Hand Painted Type Project is rescuing many amazing and creative original street typefaces from obsolescence. The sign painters Saptagiri, from Bangalore, are highlighted on their Pokies website – you can, when in Mysore or Bangalore, still find signs all over the city with the distinctive Saptagiri signature on the bottom corner of their signs.
